i interviewed with american eagle the beginning of April. I have passed everything, but was told my finger prints came back unclassified. I have to go back in to get them redone, but the finger print machine is broken. Waiting to hear when its fixed so i can go back in. This is a very long process. The next training class is June 6th which i am sure i will miss, since today is 5/31 and still did not hear.

Any way of getting around all this? I am about to cancle my interview, but, I have all the experience and will probably get the offer....

Any advice?

They will not give you a job if you are saying that you got your GED if you really didn't. Yes even though you may ace the interview. But still they have hiring laws that they must abide by. Even then during the post job offer you have to show your Diploma in person in order to get hired. Some jobs are different though.Some of them would still hire you if you dont have a High School Diploma or GED. But if a company position says that having a High School or GED is a requirement or a must bring. they will not hire you if you cant show those documents in person. So really to put it in simple terms you will not get that job even if you ace the interview. And also they will find out eventually anyways.

I done my research and for you to get hired on at any airline, they do a Social Security Scan on you if you are a potential to get hired, meaning they could get information from your very first job to your very last job that you held. I think the reason they ask you for a 10 year history is just to see if you are going to be honest. The dates probably don't have to be exactly right but at least close to your hire date/end date. They know for a fact that many people don't know their exact hire date and end date, so I think if you get at least close to the date or just make sure you mention the job at least is all what matters. You can also request your Social Security Earnings Information from the SSA with all the jobs that you ever had that took out social security on you and it will give you the address, phone number, and employment dates on it. There is a fee associated with that request depending on how many years you are requesting your Earnings Information for. Go to the SSA website for further details and type in: Request for Social Security Earnings Statement

I worked for a major carrier over 10 years ago and was terminated during my probationary periord due to missing work due to severe illness.

My question is must I disclose that I worked at this major airline even though it was over 10 years ago? Will it show up in the background check?

Thanks for input.

I would say if it was 10 yrs ago you shouldn't disclose that information. They only want 10 yrs of job history nothing more nothing less. But they do a background check on you 10 yrs from now so No don't mention it

Be aware that airlines, like most employers nowadays, do a Google and Facebook search as well. Don't allow the public to see you pictures! Large HR departments have legal databases that produce most of your addresses for the last 10 or 20 years (if applicable), bankruptcies, DUIs, other criminal charges, etc. These are all public records--something applicants don't always think of or believe. Over the years, I've heard people say,"The law forbids you from looking up that stuff! My privacy is protected!" This is a misunderstanding. Even though criminal charges, etc., don't always come up in a routine Google search, they show right up on background checks of public records in legal databases.
If you are asked if you were ever terminated from a job,answer honestly. Many people get terminated during the probationary period. If the cause was illness, It's not a big deal. if the cause were misconduct, then you have a problem.

I agree with recuiter that it is a total misconception that people think that companies can't find out personal information due to privacy laws. But if your record is publicly displayed with your authorization (where you click "Agree to terms") then most definitely it's considered a public record to potential employers and can most certainly jeopardize your employment with the organization.

@Natalie - I doubt an airline would refrain from hiring you due to your termination more than 10 years ago. Everyone has to learn from their mistakes, and even if you were terminated not due to illness, you can defend yourself in a way that reflects that you will not repeat your past mistakes. I think based on several forum threads available here, as long as you're impressive face to face and have the heart, you will get there. :) Good luck!

@Natalie - and perhaps you should be straightforward and ask the recuiting office or at the interview of what you should do. Now you're covering your behind, asking them if they require further history from you and you're happy to provide it rather than not providing it. It could be reflected as though you're hiding some skeletons in your closest, if you don't disclose it to someone from HR.

Just my 2 cents, but god knows! Recuiters are human too, and they probably appreciate your honesty and your effort to ask.

I wouldn't stress too much on the check at this point since you have to get through the interview process first. Airlines don't spend the money on your background check until you reach the point where they request a physical. Once you pass the physical, then the background check gets done. You have a few steps to get to that point. They are mainly looking for federal offenses and DWIs.

NEVER EVER LIE on a job application. EVER.
If you have something say so. If you don't then say that. It shows you can't be trusted. If you lie about that ... what else and when else will you lie.

Instead of resorting to not telling the truth and potentially getting fired down the road, why don't you just go and take the GED? Its offered free of charge throughout the United States. In my opinion, it shows that you are unprofessional for lying and further perhaps lazy for not bothering to get the GED. Your best bet is to either admit you don't have one, or just go and take the GED- it shouldn't take a person with your obvious intelligence more than a week...then you will have it for life and never have to risk lying.
Honesty will always get your farther

If it was less than 15 Mph over the limit it was an "infraction". You can list it...and say you don't remember. That way if it shows up they will see it. This is not something they will care about...but telling them is the good thing. Even if it was more still list it. They really don't care about DMV stuff that much. It's mostly about taking responsibility. ... paying shows your responsible. Traffic school shows you are open to improvement. What that don't want to see is a ticket you didn't pay that went to warrant...that might stop you.

F/A Hopefully in Brentwood, California said: I have had a phone interview for the general stuff and then the phone interview for the F/A stuff. I was told after the second phone interview that "congratulations you passed this interview" They asked me where I would prefer to fly out of and then They said the next step is to fill out the online application and that a recruiter would review it and then call me to set up an interview. Does this mean that if they like what they see on the application theyll call or that they need me to fill it out before I'm scheduled. Also I too filled out the portion about convictions and all i had was a speeding ticket and I dont remember when I received my last. It could have been within 10 years i dont remember but I went to traffic school and it was removed from my record. How do I find out if I had more and since I went to traffic school and had it removed, do I even have to list it. Thanks

As long as you are able to work legally in the US now, it does not matter that you were illegal in the past. I know some people who were in the same situation and they are happily flying.

I have just received an invitation to attend a session in Charlotte NC for a flight attendant position. I am just curious what the initial sessions are like. Is this an info session only? Or will I have an opportunity to interview? I guess I am just curious overall as to whether or not attending gives me more of a 90% chance of getting the position oppose to 50/50. I have been seeking employment going on 3 months now, and I am seriously tired of interviews with no positive outcomes. I have always thought of being a flight attendant, but my son was too young at the time. Now that he is a teen, I believe this would be an ideal time to take the sky, and make it a career... I just hope the session I will attend is not one that does not afford me an opportunity to market my customer service, hospitality, and other administrative attributes. I NEED THIS CHANCE! Any advice from anyone who is already in the industry would be great!

I remember some and I know some have gone out of business (military family...we moved a lot). What do I do for the 10 year history? Just put what I know? Tell them I'm not sure? I know I'm missing a job or two, I just cant remember for the life of me what and when. I dont want them to think I am a liar. Any advice will be helpful.

Has anyone here actually been hired as a FA w the major airlines? Is it really only a 10 year criminal background check or is it your whole life? I'm wondering if the 10- year thing is mentioned in regards to criminal history (misdemeanor) the pre background check questionnaire or if the 10-year time limit is just regarding WORK history.

Thanks for any help and insight....

LIV in Columbus, Ohio said: Hi! I am newer to this process. I worked for the airlines 9 years ago. But that airline merged. So the background check is a good question. I am worried that they will not be able to verify my employment for years 9-10.

Whoever said it earlier is probably correct, they probably do not check all inetrviewees, but I would like to think they would check before they accept you for training.

I remeber many years ago in my training class, they would pull out a person each week bc of verification issues. It only lasted the first 2 weeks, I think. But still that person may have put in their 2 weeks for nothing with a previous employer, and now they had to look for a new job. It really made you think YIKES and feel badly for that person!

Does anyone know when they actually have all info verified?

When I was a flight attendant supervisor for an airline that is no longer in business they hired another company to do the background checks when flight attendants are in training. They do not do the background checks for people who are interviewing. It's too costly, because 300 people may interview.

It isn't logical and very costly for an airline to do background checks before a face to face interview. I have been on the flight line with several airlines as well as upper management. There will always be a few who got picked for training and turned it down for personal reasons. Some changed their minds during training when they hear what life will be like on reserve. We always invite a few more for training due to attrition.

If I were you I wouldn't assume that your two prior arrests are automatically the reason you didn't get selected. Remember, about 90% or so of ALL F/A applicants/interviewees get rejected, and most of them have spotless backgrounds! In fact, some of them may have spotless backgrounds AND have been or currently be a F/A with another airlines , and still they get turned down!

(CONT'D)

I agree, I have been a flight attendant with a major airline that went out of business. I applied to a regional airline and got turned down. It may not be your prior arrest that prevented you from getting hired. The F/A supervisor is looking for a particular type of person for their group and maybe you didn't fit that profile. I would keep trying, it may not be about you.

if you get dismissed/fired by employers, they will normally have you sign a letter/notice stating you have been fired (or check off quit, if you had quit) this is for the unemployment request. So if you did not sign anything for the employer than you are good to go, since there would be no verification you have been fired.

sam in Smyrna, Georgia

So about 3 years ago I had kind of a bad year. I was originally arrested for a dui which was later dropped to reckless driving because I was not actually drunk. Then I was arrested for supposedly getting into a "fight" and was charged with disorderly conduct which also got dropped during court. Lastly, I was arrested for public intoxication while walking home because I tripped on a sidewalk. The last is the only one still on my record because I just paid the fine and never went to court for it. What do you think my chances are? This was all within a years time while I was going through some other pretty rough stuff. I have since made quite a turn around and hope that I can get a job with one of the several airlines to which I've applied. I do intend on disclosing this information and explaining, but will they even consider me?

Not yet. Its against the law (in most cases) for Social Security to reveal anything other than you are who you say you are and that this is your Social Security number. Everify does this.

Now a hundred years from now, you won't even see a job application because that will go the way of the telephone booth and the cassette tape. They will just scan your forehead.

Now a hundred years from now, you won't even see a job application because that will go the way of the telephone booth and the cassette tape. They will just scan your forehead.

Haha! now, are you sure? so many people on this forum are saying that during your background they can pull a complete list of your employers, i thought that might be a breach of privacy, i'm assuming that they just work off your application and check with all the former employers as well as the people you list when you have lapses in employment. i had lots of ridiculous little part time jobs, catering, one day stuff that just seemed pointless to list......thanks!

Well Edward Snowden is proof that "invasion of privacy" is just a nostalgic concept but he himself is living proof that no background check is foolproof - not yet.

By the way, save ALL of your paystubs and W2's from now on, at least until they start scanning foreheads. My sister had "to prove" that she once worked for a bank that went belly up. Both of us have all our paystubs, W2's and Employee of the Month awards going back over ten years.
