My question is.... if you have a minor convictin and it was disclosed to HR, will this conviction also show up on the finger printing

As long it is disclosed to HR, you should be okay. If it was credit card fraud, something like that, you will not be hired but if it was a DUI or something like that, they may decide to overlook that. I knew a personal banker who was arrested in high school for brining a gun to school which shocked me so it may depend on who you are dealing with and what job you are applying for. Where are you working? Phoenix Campus or Tempe Ops?

Standard ASI background check is 5 years (mostly employers, education, etc).

Their FBI background check will go to 7-10 years, if you've ever been arrested and fingerprinted it will show up.

Are you sure they only go back 7-10 years on FBI Background Check? How do you know this info. I am concerned because I have DUI 15 years ago. Thanks for your help.

I did upload a cover letter but I think the recruiter and the branch manager look into the resume more than cover letter. Frankly speaking, I don't think they even read the cover letter.

The email is saying that your background meaning your work history, education, etc. not the actual criminal background check. Background check is done after the final interview when b of a offers you the job. They will nOt do the background check if you are rejected from the interview process. I think the below email is telling you that you didn't pass your interview with the manager or the recruiter.

Hope this helps.

Honestly, how far back does FBI background checks go? I have a potential opportunity to get a job. Now the job itself only does background checks up to 7 years. But I also have to get a government clearance. Any advice?
