I was wondering if someone can help me concerning my background check for Theft 3 charge. I have been reading some of the forum questions and is it true that since I shoplifted less then a year ago that i wont be given a chance for a job at Boeing because of the time frame. That Boeing has a certain amount of time that they want your case to be done. I am perplexed and I need the truth. Please help anyone!!

This is true as far as I know(my mom works there). I helped a friend get a job there recently and he screwed it up because of his record. Here in PA they make helicopters for the military so working for Boeing is essentially working for the fed government. They don't want ANYTHING o n your record.

But you probably need security clearance. I know a lot of jobs say you dont need security clearances. I am going to try and tell them the truth and see what happens. I pray they will overlook my stupid mistake and give me another chance to redeem myself. I am very remirseful with what i did. A lot of people have done atleast one thing in their life and regret it and truly they are wonderful people they just made a mistake. If you or your mom have any insight please let me know!!

if you ever get to fill out an application after you get a congrats email from bess, make sure that you put that on there cause they do background checks as you know and if your honest about it they may let it slide, its a misdemeanor i take it? if it is you have nothing to worry about

Did you have to wait awhile before you heard from them about setting up an interview? Also I was truthful about my background on my app. I am concerned though if they will grant me an interview. Any suggestions...I am going crazy waiting!!!:( Congratulations on getting the job!!

Yes i recieved the bess application in June and had my interview a week ago. They wont run your background until you accept an offer. I have a misdeamenor on my background but was told to make sure and list it otherwise you will then have to wait out 18 months before re-applying. Believe me I know from past exp....
