I've never worn glasses but I think vision uncorrected in my right eye was 20/40 when I did the cbp medical. I don't care to get glasses if I need them but wonder what the exact rules are for vision. The hiring site seems a bit vague/general.

Medical Exam, Vision

Does anyone know about the Grand Forks location? Is it easy to transfer into? I saw it was listed as one of the new hire locations.

So what does it mean when the person administering the poly says he cant fail you, yet he cant pass you either? He wants you to come back and try it again?

Was it ďinconclusiveĒ?

Polygraphs are pseudoscience at best. I canít believe that agencies still rely upon them.

It is because QC decides who passes or fails which is someone that can analyze the data. Also, I havenít really read much on polygraphs because you are advised not to.

Grand Forks is a UAS location, shouldn't be too difficult to get if there are openings.

Last I knew if it was "inconclusive" you can't be hired. So I would guess the best course of action is to try again.

If itís inconclusive, they have the option to repoly you.

Iím still in school working on my Fixed wing ratings. An Army veteran. The current hiring requirements are 1000 hours . Iím debating applying once I get to that mark. Obviously about two years away. From what Iím reading thereís a huge chance Iíll go UAS? Is that correct? I like the idea of continuing to serve my country. And stability is important to be. I get thereís other parts to this job not just flying but A drone doesnít sound appealing at all.


Thanks for the input.
