Now that i've started reading about it. They are supposed to tell you "stuff you hear in the internet is incorrect yadda yadda" if you indicate that you studied up on it. They expect you will have done some reading on it and have a scripted speech for you. I don't think they can fail you unless you literally say I took a practice test with x person so I could pass this lol. Which if you took an actual practice with someone I'm sure you'd know enough not to say that

They didn't ask me if I prepped just something along the lines of what do you know about polygraph (then they launched into a speech about how accurate they are (its science bro!)) Your only hooked into the actual polygraph for 10 min or so(20 in my case cause he was like i'll try it again you just have to be honest with me)

I mostly agree but in my case it didn't work. On a do over I would have researched how to pass not because I want to beat the thing I just want it to be accurate.

I intend on being as honest and forthcoming as possible. The only way to fail is to lie correct? I'm not saying falcon did anything wrong I'm just trying to make sure I understand the "rules" of this exam

Did any pure civilians (no prior military), or any non law enforcement types get hired in this July announcement? Curious to see if a straight civilian can get an interview invite?

I am a Marine Vet, so cant answer that, dont even know what the July announcement was, far as I know everything is still backed up until next year for new hires getting a slot in Brunswick for FLETC.

I applied on USAJOBS.com in march and got the tent offer that week, being a Veteran might have helped, not sure. Have you applied on USAJOBS yet? If you get the tent offer things happen quick from there, but I think a class date to start getting paid is well into next year.

They are continuing with the hiring process to get you to that point of a job offer and start date at FLETC. From what I have read though, once you get to FLETC you are locked in for quarantine for two weeks, than begin the 5 months of training and are not allowed off base or to have visiters the whole 5 months. Not sure if you are allowed to bring your girlfriend with you?

WacoQCF I see you are already there.. or were there? What was the July announcement? A hiring announcement? I am curious now when the last person interviewed in OKC and got a job offer?

Do you have a QCF? My dad has an RNF and we are in the process of bringing it back to life, really like to fly it.

I have now taken 2 polygraphs. One that was well over 70 questions and the cbp one. Just be honest, literally. If they say you are hiding something. Say exactly what thoughts are running through your mind. I mean exactly. You saying "nothing" or "I've never done blank" is not being 100% transparent and getting defensive does not help either.

Just my 2 cents. Complete honesty is telling them exactly what your thinking.

Former 9 year AIA; they had a hiring announcement that closed in July and I was curious if any pure civilians were offered an interview.

Yes, I fly a 1931 Waco QCF2.
