Background is made through HireRight. They will check everything so I recommend you to speak with the HR team so they can help you. Also be aware that this process can take from three to ten days depending if HireRight is able to quickly prove all your information.

Study the word “compensation” and apply it. Stop posting new jobs requiring more knowledge and responsibility then saying it’s a lateral move. Also stop requiring pre-approval for employees that want to attend travel industry functions where the competition may be in attendance. This is non-American.

I postulated through indeed, an HR employee called me two days after, I had a very quick phone interview (mainly to garantee my fluenty in English.. I'm not from the US). The next day I went for a face to face interview where I had to make an exam, HR explained us the job and benefits, after that I received an email asking me to go again, had another interview with leaders and they said yes.
The whole process took around one month.
