I have seen a couple things on here how alot of people are dropping the test because it cannot detect lies???

I'm just wondering if CVSA are better than the poly for pre-employent screening.

I really dont want to get burned on another job.

I don't recall seeing any mention in the press of the failure rates for pre-employment CVSA "tests" with any particular law enforcement agenciy. However, CVSA is no more reliable than polygraphy, and false positives do occur.
