Background checks for employment--Anyone familiar with them?
I just got a job offer, contingent upon a background check.
I had to supply the company with my SS#, my DL# as well as authorize a 24 hour drug screen.
I don't have a problem with this, since I'm not a drug user of any kind, but I'm curious to know what a background check is all about. I know they don't run a consumer credit check because that was stated in the paperwork. I'm guessing they want to make sure I'm not a felon or on probation have multiple car accidents on my driving record, but that's just a guess. This isn't a position involving operating heavy machinery or a company vehicle, so I'm really curious.
Anyone familiar with this practice?
