Your Polygraph is Inconclusive

2022-03-02T23:01:15+00:00

Your Polygraph is Inconclusive Part of the firefighter hiring process may or may not include a polygraph test. Do not be surprised if your day with the polygraph examiner comes sooner rather than later. Here is what the poly looked like for Bill. There were six pages of questions. These questions were read out loud by him before he was hooked up to the polygraph. When Bill was hooked up, only ten questions were asked to him. Each question was asked 3x in a different way and in a different order. Confusing right? Well, that is the point. For Bill, everything [...]

Never Ever Lie!!

2022-03-02T20:27:18+00:00

Never Ever Lie!! According to Doug Williamson, a 35-year veteran polygraph evaluator from www.polygraph.com “It is a very serious mistake to believe that you will pass your polygraph or CVSA tests just because you are telling the truth - they are not "lie detectors". Scientific research proves that simple nervousness will cause a truthful person to fail!” Meet Phil. I got a call from him just after he failed his polygraph. He was a mess and distressed. After talking with him, he realized he had not been as prepared as he could have been. This, I knew. You see, Phil revealed information [...]

You do not want to be caught flat-footed and wondering what happened when the career you have been pursuing evaporates before your eyes. Are you hearing me? Let me tell you about SCOTT. The first time I had contact with him was 45 minutes after he got the call that he failed his poly. He was devastated. I asked him how he had prepared for his polygraph. He said he used the free [...]

One Step at a Time

2020-10-29T18:13:23+00:00

I had a candidate tell me he went to an interview wearing a tie, suspenders and no jacket. I asked him, "Who did you think you are Larry King?" I a One Step at a Time I get a sinking feeling and my heart goes out to those who call and ask, what they can do after being eliminated. This is even after getting a conditional job offer. My question is why didn’t you call me before you went on to the next step? Often, the answer is that they felt things were going well. They did not think they needed [...]

The Curve Ball Question

2020-03-07T00:04:38+00:00

The Curve Ball Question Because I interact with many who use our eatstress.com program, I received this email: Captain Bob, I have been a volunteer firefighter for 3 years now. I only began seeking employment as a career firefighter 1 year ago so that I could finish my bachelor’s degree.  I have never had any problem passing written and physical exams but am getting eliminated after oral boards.   I am at a loss of what to do here. I feel that when I walk into the room, I am well prepared for my interview. Just recently though, I was thrown for a loop [...]
