Phone interview

Shortly after the on site interview they want you to do the background check. If you get an on-site interview they probably want to hire you. I'd say even if you have something on your record apply. If it's not violent, or fraud you've got a chance. People in my hiring class had drug felonies.

They use a 3rd party company called “HireRight” to do background checks but they themselves also have a department that does background checks to double check your history. The process of background check begins after your final interview has been completed and you’ve subsequently been recommended for hire to the hiring manager. Once the hiring manager receives the recommendation by the interviewer, they’ll either decide to move forward or not. If they move you forward, you’ll begin the background checks and then (assuming you pass) you’ll get an offer.

They only contact references of applicant once they have been selected for a job offer. It is done between your final interview and job offer.

WIth me, they initiated the background check right after I found out I was moving on after the phone interview. So, no, not all applicants only those who get past the phone interview. After they do their first couple rounds of sorting they will initiate it, but everyone at a certain point in the hiring process will get one.
