Good Luck everybody!!
Does anybody know what a background check constituets? How far back do they go? and what specifically do they look for?
I interviewed for an entry level position at a pretty large company last week. I had to fill out all sorts of paperwork including a background check. I believe most places are looking to verify your education and previous places of employment, if you have ever been arrested or convicted of anything, etc... This place made me sign a paper saying that they could talk to my friends and neighbors about my mode of living and personal characteristics, check my credit history, wanted to know if I had a gun permit etc... It seemed pretty extreme but I assume they probably wouldn't go that far for an entry level position.
