I thought I would be getting a job with the Secret Service 6 years ago but things fell through. Passed the Polygraph and was told by other agents that I was a shoe in, only to receive a letter questioning a neck/back injury I listed on my app. Yes, 10 months into the process they JUST FREAKING REALIZE that I listed that I had a serious injury in highschool and now wanted me to see an Ortheopedic Surgeon. I did, he gave me a clean bill of health, and 2 weeks later I receive a letter that I am no longer a candidate. Talk about completely jerking me around. I probably would have hated my initial assignment anyway. They told me I would be assigned to the Whitehouse as Security Detail which would require standing for most of the time. The hours I was told I would be working for the first year would be horrible as well. I make much more now that I would have had I gotten that job so no big loss.
