Wells in Berkeley, California

Still waiting for my background check result. I've finished my finger print on 10/27/2011 and it's now Wednesday. I'm just afraid if my offer will be rescinded because i have a criminal case in 2005 (case dismissed in Jan. 2007). My offer was rescinded from Chase in Sept. 2011 because of my criminal case. sigh....I'll update you guys with my status later. wish me luck.

Good Luck! This Thursday would have been 3 weeks for me. I just emailed the HR recruiter yesterday and I received a reply this morning to let me know that she is hoping she would received it within the next 48 hrs. Im not sure why it is taking so long but maybe because I have moved over ten times within the past 10 years. And my credit is horrible. Wish me luck also. I will keep you updated once I hear something.

Good luck on your result and pls update us with your status later.
I'm worried a lot because I had my offer rescinded from Chase and same thing will happen from Wells Fargo.
I hope my background will clear too.
Thank you for your comment!

Congrats Tommy! Good to hear that you got the job!
I'm still waiting on mine. It's been 2 weeks now since I did my finger print.
I'm very stressed out and can't do anything because I read some comments related to my crime conviction not getting the job.
I'm praying everyday and hope I will get a call soon. wish me luck!

Ok I past all my interviews to become a Personal banker1 at wells and went and had my fingerprints and they started my background. how long does it take I'm supposed to start November 28. . I'm scared a lil to hear the results because I checked NO and had a felony over 7 years ago when i was in college. the charge was dismissed and sealed in 2010. I have never had any other altercations and my charge has nothing to do with stealing or any type of dishonesty. Should I be worried

Did my finger print on 10/27/2011, got my consumer report from First Advantage on 11/2/2011 (since you live in California you'll be able to receive your report if you selected yes), and First Advantage mailed me a letter on behalf of Wells Fargo on 11/9/2011 (which i got the mail today 11/14/2011) saying that my offer was rescinded. They don't tell you the reason. And I think this is case by case but I didn't get any calls from my recruiter regarding my offer being rescinded. So to answer your question, it took 8 business days for them to mail me the decision.

Hope you get the job. Good luck.

I was told the background check can take up to 60 days (possibly 90?) since it is a federal background check. I was suppose to start on 11/28, but my recruiter called me on 11/23 informing me that it has yet to be complete and I wont be able to start till 1/9/2013 if it is clear.

No I have two MIP's.. Have you tried calling the recruiter? Maybe they can assure you sometimes it takes a while to do these background checks. It all depends. I'm sure it'll be fine!

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

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?
