I want to be a firefighter, but I got a past I'm not proud of. I have a clean record, but I know they do a polygraph test. Should I apply anyway?
No one gives a shit about your past. For hosedraggers you need to be willing to take the poly and be physically fit. You also need someone in the firehouse to get you hired as those are competitive jobs. For coppers it's the same, but our poly tests actually will impact a hiring decision.
