I just got a job at BOA handling money(teller) and I have no idea if they do a credit check, but I just filed bancrupcy own several hospital bills and so on. And I got hired. So I don`t think they did a credit check. I heard only do credit check on those who handle big monatary transaction( personal banker, finacial advisers...)Hope I helped.

I received an offer pending a satisfactory background check for the call center. I had a bankruptcy in 2009 but everything else(criminal...etc) is good. Are you still working there? They really didn't do a credit check? I've been a nervous wreck wondering because my current employer is asking me for a commitment on my cutting back on my shifts. I don't want to give shifts away and then find out my offer was rescinded. Then I'm out two jobs! LOL! Not to mention that I don't want to have to tell people why it was rescinded:( Please respond. I just need some piece of mind because people are saying they don't do credit checks but I read somewhere that they check for bankruptcies. Thanks.

They DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT care about bankruptcy. I had a friend go through the background check literally less then one month after her BK was complete. They do not care. They are a bank and understand what bankruptcy is for and that it doesn't get mean you pay a fee to get out of paying debt. They understand you had to qualify, you did because of valid hardship.

Keep in mind...they don't even drug test OR look at credit. They pull credit to see if you have any legal judgments and if you have a current, open, bad debt with them.

Good luck. I'm going through it now and I wish that was all I had to worry about :-)

Can someone please help me. I got offered the teller position last week. Then an investigator called me asking about a job I forgot to include in my history. If I left on god terms but it was through termination,even though they said I'm rehirable, will this negatively affect me. If so what can I do to make sure everything runs smoothly?

Just be completely honest with them, but mention that you forgot to list it since it was so long ago...

I am going through the asi background check and yesterday the investigator called and asked me to sign a form so he could talk to my recent employers. I've never been fired from a job but I did leave one job without giving them two weeks notice. Also I got an nta a year ago for indecent exposure but it was dismissed and I didn't plea or anything so I didn't include it in my application because that didn't fit into any of the descriptions they gave. I just want to know if I should be worried about any of that?

You should have told them about the indecent exposure charge. Other than that I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Ok I appreciate that info! There really wasn't anywhere to disclose that info. The question was have you ever plead guilty, no contest, or had adjudication withheld.
