    with 3 chiefs.

    shitty.

    hadda explain all my drug use as a teen and young adult, juvenile criminal history, job history, and driving record.

    i left there feeling like a criminal :(

    43 total applicants left in this phase, they have 32 spots to fill.

    the odds are in my favor but i'm afraid my history is not.

    this was the last step, too. after this is the initial job offer, physical, then psych evaluation. recruit school starts january 23rd.

    :x:

    it's always better to tell the truth about everything.

    especially if you're gonna get polygraphed

    marijuana a few times, mushrooms once, lsd 2 times, nitrous once

    shitty past driving record (two suspensions, 26 points on my license at one point)

    some breaking and entering as a teen and shoplifting.

    and got fired twice.

    so other than all that, NOTHING!

    polygraphs, im in the process of being a cso (community service officer, the step before police officer) and i took the MMPI and another test which ask you about drug use. they let you know whatever you write they may ask on the polygraph, and every major drug was covered on the test so yeah. you cant beat the system, well, you can but eventually youll get caught. you're better off telling the truth

    Yea, I knew they gave the polygraph tests prior to becoming a police officer but I didnt know they gave em to fire fighters as well. What do they ask you about besides drug history?

    if you love/hat e your mother father. if your sex life is good, if you see visions, if your skin crawls, if you have had sex with animals, if you hear voices, if you bite your nails, if you want to commit suicide, if you could get away with something would you do it. its alot of weird questions but its looking for inconsistancy. they will word one question 3 or 4 different ways

    Ya, if I was in his shoes, I would have said I smoked a little in my day, but would have left out the shrooms, LSD, and nitrous. The rest I would have been honest about.

    lol I would tell the truth.
    what drugs have you taken?? umm... lets start with the ones I haven't. Crack, heroin... I think that sums it up.

    Have you ever stole anything? Not lately.

    Do you fantasize about killing people? I'm trying to cut back.

    That kind of interview is what I'm afraid of doing if its the same in Canada.
    I'd be a nervous wreck.

    Chief: "Why are your eyes bloodshot?"
    Me: "From the 5 shots of vodka I had to calm my nerves for this interview."
    Chief: "Is that why your hands are trembling?"
    Me: "Oh no, sir. That was from the caffeine/ ephedrine stack I took this morning."
    Chief:"It says here you were on anti depressants."
    Me: "Yes, sir. But I'm not really usually depressed. I think that was brought about due to me drinking too much and doing ecstacy 2-3 times /week for 3 months straight. Fucks with your mind, you know. And your nerves."

    chief " why are your eyes bloodshot?
    me: from the 6 wake up beers prolly
    Chief: "is that why your hands are trembling?"
    me: oh no sir, that's because I only had 6
    Chief: "it says here you've taken drugs"
    Me: yeah lots. especially that 6 months I was addicted to pain killers. You know 60mg of vicodin a day can really fuck with your system
