    So is this not a 2 year list? Looking at the list posted on Cincinnati's city website and at the top of the page it says: "Date list expires: list may be used on or before one year from first hire date."

      That's what it is looking like. Now that the list is out, has anybody been called already for polygraphs? And how many will they do, still 25%?

        Just got my polygraph scheduled. Im definitely nervous and feeling it. Is it just me or does the hiring process so far seem to be moving really fast?

          So I ranked relatively high (Top 15) but I still havent gotten a call or email to schedule the poly. Would it be safe to assume Im not moving forward?

                    I'm no expert but my understanding through what I've read is in order to send the candidates to Chief Winston for the selection of the class they need to achieve a certain number of eligible candidates. Generally it's X amount of candidates to the number of potential hires. while I dont know how many candidates that is, 5 is pretty standard and would make sense as that would mean approximently 200 candidates to a 40 recruit class. While at the poly I was told they could poly approximately 8 candidates a day which is at least 25 days of polygraphs in order to just reach the minimim number of candidates. Now add in that every failed poly means they need to polygraph another candidate and in the meantime candidates that have failed can appeal the results to the civil service commision which must be heard prior to hiring to avoid improperly skipping over that candidate. Unfortunately the civil service commision only meets once every 2 weeks so that will take some time. Finally the Chief will need time to consider the candidates before they start making conditionals. All in all it's going to be a while. I feel your anxiety but hang on tight, it'll take a bit.

                      Do you get the results right after the polygraph?

                        I did not, my examiner specifically said that they can't tell you the results of the exam and to remain patient. I'm sure you have the same question I do, but I have no clue how or when or if someone is informed if they passed. If you fail the poly or some portion of the background you'll be informed you've been removed from the eligibility list I'd assume since there is an appeal process. Did you receive your results?

                          That would make sense considering the option of a appeal. I havent taken mine yet Im scheduled to later this week.

                              I've read that the average recruit class is 40 members, but that is always open to the Chief and budgetary requirments. As far as I'm aware the date for this first class has not been announced but CarnyTheKid (they know more about this process then anyone else) indicated that the perspective date will be in early 2019. Recruit training is approximently 6 months regardless of certification level at time of highering.
