Tips for Phases 1-4

Post by Legitsnip3side » Wed Jan 15, 2020 8:53 pm

I just wanted to start a forum of Tips regarding the Pre-Employment phase. I have some questions (Im sure others do to) about what the process is like. So heres my questions:

1.) What is it like during Phase 1&2? What do they look at on your phone exactly? And what do they look for on your social media?

2.) For Phase 3, what kind of questions do they ask exactly? And do they look at your family history and ask you about it? What are some trick questions they tried to throw at you?

3.) What can I do to prepare for the academy?

Feel free to ask questions yourself. :D

- show up on time or preferably early
- Answer yes sir or yes ma’am
- do what they tell you do to
- when you receive and email with instruction, follow the instruction
- be honest ALWAYS

I don’t think they try to trick you, they just ask honest questions and want honest answers. You should be fine.

when you did phase 4 on the psychological evaluation, besides doing the assessment test did they make you do a second test?
