I just have a couple questions. Is it common for a polygraph examiner to lie to me and tell me I have a reaction to certain questions? I had a couple questions that was told I had a reaction to and I was honestly telling the truth? She kept asking me what I was thinking which I wasn't thinking anything about the question. She didn't tell me I failed, but she wants to retest me next week on one question. She told me to think about it and if I remember anything to let my background investigator know. I don't know what to tell the BI since I was being as honest to the best of my knowledge.
I left feeling like crap and am wondering if i should just start apply elsewhere, all this waiting and mystery of the police hiring game is killing me.
Saying I did show a "reaction" to one question, does that mean I fail the hiring process? or does the department still look at the whole package. My BI and my polygraph were not conducted by the police department I want to work for, they were hired contractors.
