Will they contact an employer I worked for 2 days? I quit when I got a better job and did not leave on good terms.

working 2 days wouldnt necessarily be needed to put down. but if u list it , just say you left on good terms for a better opportunity.

I have been offered an internship for this summer with Merrill Lynch, which was bought out by BofA last year. I was charged with an misdeamnor shoplifting offense in October of last year. I entered into a diversion program, and even had an private investigator run a background check on me. He was unable to come up with anything. My question is, will BofA be able to find this charge anywhere on my record if he was unable to?

Yes, they will need to know any all employers you put down even if you worked there for 1 day or 5 hours. If they paid you put it down. I agree with Brad in response to your reson for leaving. The main things they are looking for is accurate dates of employment and if you got fired or not.

Hi everyone

my case is that, I have worked for 2 companies before and I was fired for my first job. The boss doesn't like me and they didn't even left me a reference letter when I left.
I joined in another company in the consecutive month after being fired and I got a good reference letter. I am quite sure the employer of my second job will say good things about me.
after that, I took a postgrad degree for 1 year and I applied to BofA, they get me an offer and I signed the contract. Now they are awaiting for my application form and employment history (sounds weird for company to do that AFTER they gave u offer and you signed) I did put my past 2 jobs on my Resume when I applied the job.

My question is: should I put the company which fired me in the employment history? I have read so many post here and they freaked me out. Suppose I put it on the list, am i digging my own grave for doing so?

It is a nightmare to fresh graduate getting fired for the first job and I have proved myself a good employee for my second job. I understand that BofA will not hear my story and all they care about is whether you get fired or not.

I am so scared now and I kinda told everyone i got an offer. Could anyone help me? Thanks

Brad,

Is that the ONLY job you have been let go from in the past 5 years? If so, you will be fine. Just put down everything and say something along the lines of "position was not a good fit" or what have you. If you have been let go from more than one job in 5 years you will be disqualified from the hiring process. Yes, even though you have signed and accepted the offer. Strange I know! They should review backgrounds and make sure they are clear before sending offers getting peoples hopes up! But again, if you just have one termination in 5 years you will be cleared.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you so much for your reply.

Yes that is the only job I have been let go in 5 years.
But how about the phone calling issue? Why are you so sure?

Anyway I decided to put everything on, I believe no one would like their employee who lie and hide things up
Thanks!

I finished the ASI two days ago, and then forgot about an employer i worked at for only three days, the company was a fraud and then they went out of business, so i dont think that there is any record of them. Will that have any affect on employment.? and i also have had 9 jobs in the past five years, Do u think that will go against me? most of them have been part time or temp or seasonal because im a college student. But today I received a call from my recruitor scheduling me for a panel interview next week with different managers, so what does that mean, was it satisfactory i forgot to ask her?

Dre - Yes, I would still put that company down. If you were paid and it was in the last five years make sure you include it. Having 9 jobs will not disqualify you. The ASI can take up to 5 days to come back. Your recruiter will let you know if you passed or not. I wouldn't worry about unless you've been fired multiple times from different employers in the past 5 years.

ususally it's compared against what you provide them and what comes up on your employment record through social security office.

I hope someone can help with some questions i have about B of A employment ..
I am currently going through the interview process .. and wanted to get an idea of the credit check .. I have had perfect credit for 15 years ( my whole adult life ) until I lost my job 3 months ago ... since then I am past due on two mortgages that I have .. one of which is with Bank of America ....
How do they factor that into the process?
Also do they fire employees if they foreclose on a Bank of America mortgage?
Any inside help will be appreciated ...

If you've been fired more than once in 5 years I would certaintly be concerned. You could still go through the process but don't be surprised if you don't get hired. Not to sound harsh or anything but it's just the truth. Keep your options open!

I have completed all my interviews ... but have not completed any of the other paper work?
Will they fingerprint me .. if I am working in a call center ... not a branch
I have not completed any ASI information?
I'm not even sure I know what ASI is ...

Any help would be appreciated

ahhhhh i submitted my form on monday, i guess i'm not getting a call today. i don't know if i want to hear from them, because no call might be good news according to my recruiter but like you said you got a call back saying it was satisfied which is also why i want to hear from them.

the form is pretty much straight forward..
address(s) in your last 10 years of residency
last 5 years of employment - which includes hire date, ending date, salary, reason for living, etc
previous education

the tricky part is all information has to be accurate

Maybe that is good news then..Im sure if your results came back unsatisfactory they would be quick to inform you. If they didnt that would be unprofessional. They didnt submit my ASI forms to be gone over until after I had been the one picked to be hired by the branch manager.

Ya hes right. You want to gather last 10 years of where youve lived, last 5 of where youve worked and your most recent schooling and be extremely accurate. As a teller I did have to do fingerprinting as well as the ASI and a criminal background check...

I filled out my ASI form last Thurs. and I had the phone interview with the recruiter on Friday. He said he will call me by Tuesday to set up a in person interview with the hiring manager. Is this normal to wait couple of days to get in person interview? Don't they give you the interview date at the end of the phone interview?? Please advise..

I wouldn't worry too much about that. If it comes back UNSAT just see about an esclation and let them know you made a mistake on the years.

i actually just got off the phone not too long ago with the person that is reviewing my form. He is currently reviewing the application and he was curious about one of my previous employment. He said that if he doesn't any anymore question the next person i'll hear from is my recruiter.

Hey Star I have a question for you.

I am currently going thru hiring process with BofA. This is my dilemma. I had an offer with Chase which was a licensed position as a PB rescinded due to miscommunication on my U5. The offer was rescinded the day before I was supposed to start working for them. As you know PB position at BofA does not require Series licenese so the recruiter told me it wouldn't be a problem. I did not work a single hour for Chase but since I was on the payroll I was paid and then couple weeks later they took the money back. Again, emphasis on I didn't work single hour and it was a mishap that my account was credited and debited within in couple weeks. Is this going to cause a dilemma? I didn't put anything on my ASI because I never worked for them.
