I don't think they do. In fact, I know they must not have done a credit check as my credit is bad. I got offered the job. What position were you applying for?

I really don't think they do cuz my credit sucks and they hired me. In fact someone told me they didn't even tho they had us fill out all this paperwork about credit. Before I got the job, I asked a teller if they did a credit check and she said NO.

Charles Flynn in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania said: Listen,
The only thing that is serious enough to stop you from getting hired with WF is fiduciary fraud (writing a bad check). I am not talking about bounding a check, but getting prosecuting and convicted of a bad check. This is law that WF has to follow. It has to do with the FDIC and such. We have hired guys (and I am sure gals) with multiple DUI's, BKS, and bad credit. So, if the hiring manager like you, and submits you information ( by the way we just get a phone number to HR that we dial that computer voice that says yes or no) there is a buffer from even your hiring manager about your personal information. I think that is a great system. You don't have to hang your head down low for a few misdeamers. On the interview, talk about your data base, if you do not have a data base, talk about ACT and how you plan to effectively use it. Act is a follow up sales system (for those that do not know) Talk about your willingness to train and learn thier system. A great line is to say that "I am not here to reinvent the wheel". Wells wants Wells people. You will understand this after your first week of traing. Good luck.

I have a group interview scheduled for tomorrow and I was wondering if a misdemeanor DUI convicition, and a domestic arrest with no conviction would prevent me from getting hired at Wells Fargo?

BackGround Check: Yeaaa, I passed three interviews I attended, two panel interviews and the 3rd with a branch manager for a position at her store. The first was with the against seven others and us seven against other interviews that were conducted. A month later I was called again by a branch manager stating they were referred to me by their HR head. I was excited and asked if I could know if I got the position or not asap. They called me the day after and said that I received the job pending a BackGround Check. The only thing I would worry about on my background check is that I down played my previous job positions in order to not be over qualified. My VOE, credit, and criminal records are cleaner than Mr. Clean. I was just wondering if they will be able to review how much money I made and at what companies. I didn't include that I work ed at a very large financial institution for 7 months either, I hope it doesn't ding me. However, I wrote on my cover letter "For your convenience, I have condensed my resume to include only the most relevant career positions." I hope I get the job, I will know by Wednesday. Its a really great opportunity!! My interviews lasted over a month long. I am extremely excited to get started at Wells, the #1 bank today! There are many reasons why I say this! I will let you all know what happens by Wednesday. BTW, I love this blog.

I was told that I would be called by tomorrow (Wednesday). Otherwise, I already started another job. I couldn't afford to let another opportunity go while I wait for Wells Fargo to do their BG check. It took them over a month to get back to me for my 3rd interview which I passed. I will let you know as soon as I find out more myself. The recruiter stated that I would start by the end of the month once my background check clears.

I have a question, I was also hired at Wells Fargo pending a background check. Even if I have an suspended imposition of sentence it will still show? My lawyer told me to say no conviction on my application but I am beginning to wonder if I should have mentioned it.

Yes, they will be able to see it. Unfortunately, I think I was stuck with a complete imbecile working at HR. Maybe the person that will see your file will know what a "suspended imposition of sentence" is and make sure they see it on the background check.

I have got a job offer from Wells Fargo also pending background check. I do have a suspended imposition of sentence 5 years ago for writing a bad check on my own account. Should I have marked yes on the box that asked about being a convicted felon? My attorney says no, but if they can see the charge I would feel better to disclose it myself.

Going to final interview for phone banker. 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.?

Hi,
I have a group interview Monday and am really worried about the whole background check thing. I seriously don't think I have anything bad enough to warrant a company pulling a job offer, however, I was baffled when I passed Fingerprinting and a Background Check to work for a school district as a Substitute teacher 3 years ago, but couldn't pass a California Casino Background Check only 3 months ago. Anyone have any insight on this, as the Casino said they were "not allowed" to disclose to me what it was they found that caused them to pull their job offer and I am very confused. I have a DUI, from 2005, that will be past the Statute of Limitations for reporting in 2012, I fell just under the 7 year rule before the law changed to 10 years, and a Misdemeanor Possession of Alcohol while under 21 from over 10 years ago in Nevada, and one traffic violation 2 years ago for speeding. Other than these 3 things my record is clean, or so I think. I honestly don't know what else there could have been that caused the Casino to pull their offer, but the School District apparently thought I was not so criminal. My credit is also Fair, not great, but not terrible either. I was able to co-buy a car in April of this year and my Credit Score at that time was about 670 and it can only have inproved since then, as I have been able to secure a couple small credit cards and have paid on time for them and the car. Any help or insight would be great. I really need this job, we are 2 months behind on rent and bills and have a 2 year old and another due in June. I searched for 4 months and couldnt even get an interview anywhere and I have a UC Berkeley degree. I have no Banking experience, but I do have experience in Management, Sales and Cash Handling. Thanks in advance for your replies. And Happy Thanksgiving!

It's my understanding that your level of BG check depends on the position you've applied for. An entry level position gets one type while a mgmt position gets another. DUI's, BK's, most misdemeanors, shouldn't have an effect. However, if you have any record of theft, it could be a problem. Run a BG check on yourself to see what you have. I don't know about policy in CA, but check with your local PD to see if you can come down and get one. I did, and it was free. When they ran my prints, they got a "hit", but ironically, it was because I was licensed by DPS and you have to print up. I wouldn't worry too much about credit scores (especially in today's economy). If your post is accurate, you shouldn't have any trouble. They just take a while. Good Luck!

Thanks. My post is accurate to the best of my knowledge, if there is anything else out there on me, I honestly have no knowledge of it. I am up for a Personal Banker position I believe. Thanks again.

Do they care if you are currently on probation for a minor misdemeanor? VERY minor...not a theft, drugs or anything like that!

Thanks for the response! Were you on probation for either of the misdemeanors at the time you were hired? Not concerned about the charge being an issue...just the fact of currently being on probation.

Danny, please forgive another question as I am still a bit confused! :) You recently passed the WF background check right? Are you currently on probation... or were you on probation in the past but not at the time of the background check? Perhaps you were on probation...then it was revoked and you served some sentence or whatever at that point but all that was finished with at the time of background check??? Surely if the charge wouldn`t warrant not passing...then being on probation for that charge shouldn`t matter. I HOPE!

Kim08: I did pass my background check. It took a week. I was on probation until 2012 but my probation was revoked in 2010 and I paid a fine. So when I was going through the B.C my probation had already been revoked. But I know the misdemeanor showed up. I hear that all won't hire people if they have theft or any crime for dishonesty. I hope you pass it!!!

Im not sure. I paid all my fines but I really doubt it. Like i said before, all they really care about is any crime that has to do with theft or dishonesty. Seems like wells fargo isn't as strict with their background checks compared to other banks. Trust me.

Thanks for the responses Danny! I decided not to apply with WF...not because of background check (I`m sure I would have passed from what you said). Hope you are enjoying your new position!

I got hired with 1 dui and 1 misdemeanor for also driving on a suspended license so i think you should be good. I wouldn't sweat it. We all make mistakes.
