I was wondering when you're offered a job from Capital One pending a background check what does their background check entail? I had a misdemeanor 12 years ago and my credit isn't exactly all that great. What are their requirements?

Hi Allsmilees, just saw your question today and was wondering if you landed the job? I was presented with an offer today pending background check and was wondering the same thing. Could you tell me what the background check was about?

***I applied for the Teller position at capital one and was hired.****

The background check seems to be your typical BR check done by outside an outside company that capital one hires.

It Checks for prior convictions, possibly pending charges, etc. I myself have been arrested a few times when I was younger but the charges were thrown out. May vary from location to location but that would tell me it does Not scan for arrest records themselves.

It also seems that it does not scan for your traffic infraction history as my license was suspended 3 or 4 times when I was younger due to accumulating too many points/speeding tickets speeding tickets. (Never had anything serious like DWI's or whatever else related)

So if you're not an ex felon and you don't have any serious misdemeanor convictions (Anything besides marijuana convictions really) I'm sure you'll be fine.

Can't speak specifically about Capital One but in general, most (not all) companies don't care about your "credit score".

What they don't like to see are derogatory public records like bankruptcy, repossession, liens, etc.

I believe that checking your check is a myth but I might be wrong but my credit score is around the same and I actually started working not to long ago. so good luck to you. so far Capital One seems like a awesome place to work at.

Has anyone not passed one of their assessments? I had a phone interview with a recruiter for an Assistant Branch Manager position, and the interview couldn't have gone better. I was emailed 3 assessments. The math assessment was one of the most difficult I've had in my entire job-hunting career!
Not feeling too good about it and that makes me so sad : (

Was recently hired by Capital One. No drug test, no finger printing. Background check took 8 business days. Was told by the recruiter that background check included credit check. She said they looked at credit perimeters. Not sure what perimeters they review, but my credit was awful at the time.
