I'm just wondering if they just do regular reference checks plus a separate criminal background check, or if they utilize a third party agency that contacts previous employers, criminal background, etc. I have found that it often takes longer for decisions to be made when third party agencies get involved with all aspects of the process, so I was wondering what Citi's process is. Thanks.

mike in Staten Island, New York said: They make you take a drug test and fingerprints before your start date. They run a complete background check verifying all previous jobs that you listed on your application, as well as a criminal check. The check is not completed until around 2 months in so you will already be working for the company. If they find any discrepencies they will contact you and if it's not cleard you cannot return to work until it is so I advise not lying and especially disclosing anything criminal offesnses.

Dont most companies do all of the background checks prior to a person starting a new position and prior to a company extending an offer ?

Nope. It's called innocent until proven guilty, in a way. They will assume you have told the truth and snap you up if you are qualified but if they find later you have lied it's out the door.

Does the state of New York allow criminal background checks for all employees, or just certain ones.

Where can I find out what crimes exclude you from possible employment with Citi. I know a man who works in collections who has spent time in jail more than once for violent crimes against family members and his children and still got hired. Is this their business practice or was he able to sneak in under the radar. If he did who can you report this to.

Why does Citigroup hire people with violent criminal histories such as assault and child abuse???

I sure wouldn't worry about a D.W.I. I know a guy who works for Citi who has multiple convictions for domestic violence and child abuse, even jail time and they hired him. So a D.W.I. should be cool. If they shouldn't have hired this guy, who can you report it to? Contact Info for Citi, either Human Resources or security is non-existant online.

Citi is more concerned with convictions that involve any kind of theft. No one was ever hired during my time having any charges related to theft. Bad checks, shoplifting, grand larceny, felony theft, armed robbery are the kinds of convictions that will keep you out the door.

So they are only concerned with convictions for bad checks? I have some outstanding bad checks that I am working on paying back but havent yet. Will this effect my employment?

If your in "good" with the manager its my experience they forgive everything ... even rape and pedophilia and no mental ability ..... Petty theft or serious financial theft/larceny forget it.
even rape and pedefirgih

Does citi do fingerprints background checks for customer service reps? Or just those in the bank.

I have a marijuana possession charge from every year since 2014, except 2017, which is reckless driving instead. Would I be fine?

Hey guys ,

Im in Florida . I did my interview and everything with Citi and now I’m to the background portion . I’m nervous because i have a possessive charge of marijuana for 20 grams or less . Wasn’t convicted , adjudication withheld . Also a domestic violence arrest with my Childs father where the charges were dropped . Will this keep me from passing the background check ?

Well i guess that wasn’t an issue , i got a call and my finger prints were cleared. These forums stressed me out more . The investigator called to confirm details just be very honest .

I applied with Citigroup yesterday. And I was wondering what does Recruiter Review mean? Is that saying that a Recruiter is looking at my application and there is a 50% chance that I will get a call from them? Usually, when I apply for a position, it just says completed.
