I received a copy of the background check report that Progressive had run on me. Why would they cancel the background check? I am still waiting to hear if I was hired or not.

Receiving a copy of the background check is normal. I remember getting a copy of mine when I had it. It doesn't mean that the background check was cancelled.

Did the company run a credit check as part of the background check? Don't know if I will be ok with the company pulling a credit check/report to determine employment.

They do not pull credit. Even if they did, it would have to be a soft inquiry.

They will contact your previous employment offices, however, most companies will only allow HR to speak with them since that is where all records of current and former employees are housed. If you are worried about them contacting your current job, just ask HR the policy for how they handle inquiries from outside sources regarding your employment there. 9 times out of 10, your manager will not speak with them unless you give them their # specifically. This is done for accurate answers of employment, as well as, to protect the company from any unlawful action .

Hello,

I just scheduled my phone interview. I'm actually moving to Austin for NJ. How is the phone interview? If I sticky focus on STAR method will I be safe to say it should be a breeze since I have years of experience in the call center? If you have any pointers I'm all eyes to read :)

Make sure you get your dates right. I goofed one number on my birth date on one sheet even though the remaining sheets and all other docs had correct date. Had to send in more forms which delayed the process by about a week.
