    They said to in the email But even if they didn't, my policy is to wear a full suit and tie unless told otherwise for every step of the process (call to clarify for CPAT and medical stress test, of course).

    It blew my mind when I went to the FOAM for Columbus and only like 10% of us had suits on. 90% of people aren't willing to go the extra mile for their future career.

    In summary, ALWAYS dress up. Especially with a department like Fairfax, which takes that kinda stuff into consideration.

    Had a couple personality tests, totaling maybe 1000 questions or so. After that, interview was about an hour. Just asks you the standard history questions, and standard interview questions. Nothing too crazy.

    The Psych is the last step in the certifying process. Once you complete (and pass) this, your Government Jobs account will switch to "file complete" and then approximately 2-3 weeks later you will be deemed "eligible" to hire. Your account will indicate this and you will also receive a letter in the mail. You will remain on the eligible list for 2 years.

    I do not know if there is any ranking system and because they are continually testing, i think it may be a rolling list so there is no way of knowing where you stand. Unfortunately after 2 years, if you are not called, you will need to begin the process over again.
    It?s been 3 months and still only ?file complete?. No email, letter or change to ?eligible?

    Completed all steps, recommended by psychiatrist. Does this mean I'll be put on an eligibility list? I scored pretty low, so hopefully competing the process at least means I have a chance.

    I don't know, but if you don't mind me asking, what were the steps after psych to get on eligibility list? Also, were you told your ranking?

    About the same for the poly.

    I just hope this wasn't all for naught, but at 79, I think it was.
