I had an interview with WF last week through a temp service. I got a call from my recruiter yesterday saying that I made it to the background process. While I am excited I am very nervous. I have had background checks before but none that have included fingerprinting. I have some questionable things going on like I have a license from another state, I can't get one in the state I live in now. My credit is crap but I have never been arrested. Does anyone know what they look at? I have tried to find some info on First Advantage but can't find anything. Any info provided would be appreciated, thx.

Banks do background check because it is One of the process and policy Of FDIC to see if the candidate has a criminal

Or felOny by fingerprinting the candidates. Banks look into dishonesty cases such as theft, misdemeanor for lying, bad check writing, money laundering, and etc. if you have a bad credit, it'll be ok. If you have a DUI, it'll be ok. As long as you don't have anything related to dishonesty, you'll be fine. However, make sure you list all of your criminal Or felOny case. If you don't, you will fail the background check. Banks do fingerprint to check with the FBI to see if the candidate has any record. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thx California, I don't have a criminal record. I guess just the whole fingerprinting thing has me wigged out....I requested a report from checsystems yesterday to see if I have anything out there, I can recall bouncing a check a couple of years ago but don't think that I ever squared up with the folks....bummer at this point but maybe if it is hanging out there I can get it cleared up prior to starting the background process. My temp service rep told me I would be getting an email to set up my fingerprinting, haven't gotten it yet...just ready to get the show on the road. After reading this blog I was even more freaked out but I guess it is what it is, just have to wait and see how it goes I guess. Thank God I am not going to be on the sales side of the house.

Yeah. Good luck on your hiring process. It looks like you don't have any problems to me. Writing bad check meant to be intentionally writing a bad check and not paying back the overdrawns. Anyways, congrats and have fun workin at wells fargo! =)

HELP HELP HELP! Please someone......I applied for a job as a Personal Banker at Wells Fargo in Florida. I am relocating from NJ. I have no criminal record what so ever. I was told that Wells Fargo does not check credit. My biggest concern is that I was working for another company for about 4 months and was fired because I accidentally gave proprietary information to the wrong person, a complete accident. Seeing as I was only with this employer for 4 month, I left them out of the Wells Fargo application. Now I am concerned that they will raise questions about the 4 month gap in my employment. I need help I am going nuts

Nothing will show on my criminal b/g check...nothing's there, but as far as past employment, does anyone know if they just call your employers listed, or do they access some sort of centralized database for verification of dates, etc.?

Hey I am in the exact same position. I worked for Verizon for only 3 months and was fired for accidentally sending a copy of a customers bill to the wrong person. I left this off of my Wells Fargo job application. I am applying as a Personal Banker. Will they be able to see this? Please help. Thank you.

LOL83 in Miami, Florida said: Hi Guys,

Just wanted to give you an update. I did my finger prints for my background check yesterday and the results arrived today. I received a call from my WF recruiter telling me that I passed my background check. Like I mentioned before, what they look at is your criminal record. They never asked me about my credit or chexsystem. They did not even bother looking into my work or education. Rest assure that if you do not have a criminal record you are hired. I start training in 2 weeks and they ill move on to my branch. I hope this is helpful. Good Luck.

Hey I am really hoping that you can help me. Your situation seems close to mine. I am applying for a Personal Banker job in South FL, I have an absolutely clean criminal record, I have never been arrested, and I have always been a pretty good employee. In 2008, I worked for Verizon. I was fired after 3 months working there because my friend asked for a copy of his girlfriend's cell phone bill. I gave it to him and I was fired about a month later. I am now applying to wells fargo, but I left this out of the application, will the be able to see it anyway?

Just wanted to report an update. I filled out my background info via email connection on Saturday, I did my fingerprinting yesterday and received notification that my background was completed yesterday as well. I am done with the nail biting. I will be a LSS4, unfortunately the job description reads very similar to that of the LSS3, I interviewed for both.....anyone know the real difference/usual starting salary? I secured the position through an agency and they act like they can't tell me anymore that what they have told me thus far...crap I am sure. I assume I will be sent something from WF prior to hitting the training class on the 2/20???

Hello, I have an awkward situation. I got a job offered for PB1 at Wells and said it will be official after fingerprinting and background. I wasnt to worried until I realized I did recently have an assualt charge less than a month ago. I havent went to trial yet and basically will be expunged because of the situation, but when asked on background application it said have I ever had a felony within the last 10 years and I said no. No other questions asked for an arrest which I woulda answered yes to. THe recruiter emailed me today informing a hit came up and they are investigating. So my question is would my offer be takened back even if I anwered truthfully on my application and since it wasnt relating to theft or fraud???

Does anyone know if a hit and run misdemeanor(expunged) would fail a background check?

After reading this entire thread, it seems like only people with the dishonesty type crimes are failing the background check, but I could be wrong. The WF application is very specific on what type of crimes they are looking for(fraud, breech of trust, money laundering, etc.), so I am guessing perhaps the background check only looks for those crimes?

HELP! i got hired at wells fargo call center and they said they have to do a background check and finger printing. i have 2 felonies for conspiracy with the intent to ditribute and posession of cocaine but the conviction date was in 2008. i have passed other background checks since then and have had several employers since then.from reading these transcripts it seems like they are looking for crimes of fraud or dishonesty, so should i included the felony charge or wait for them to bring it up? are the fingerprints used for criminal history or to keep on file? please help i need this job so badly, but I don't want to bring it up if its not necessary

I was interviewed for the customer sales and service rep positions by the Store Manager and next day by the district manager. No group interview... No waiting, the same day, I was offered the position pending a backgroung check. My background is as clean as Mr Clean if not cleaner however I have lived in in three different countries for the past ten years, I recently move to the US over a year ago. I am working with the State of Florida, and my recruiter at Wells Fargo is trying to get me start on the class of may 21. I want to give the State of Florida proper notice before I resign from my current position. I have submitted my backgroung and will mail back the Fingerpoint forms on tuesday. Does anyone know how long it may for me to get those results. My wife wants me to inform the State and give them a three weeks notice but I want to wait until I hear back from them. I
Does anyone know whether or not they check your record from your home country. I have been living in the Bahamas, Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Wonder how long this process may take.

Bank Employee
May not hire individuals convicted of crimes of dishonesty,
breach of trust, or money laundering without prior written consent
of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. FDIC has indicated
that it considers drug offenses to be crimes of dishonesty.
....So I would have to say that I would be concerned with intent to distribute charges, especially since thy are felonies....
Good Luck!!
