Background Checks

A background check is an important tool that employers make use of during the hiring process. Companies want to protect themselves from any potential problems, so they will closely examine the backgrounds of prospective employees, especially if the job has security requirements. Depending on the job, applicants can expect a company to look into their criminal history, credit report, school records and workman's compensation records, if applicable. If driving is your intended career path, you will need to first get a commercial driver's license, or CDL. When applying for jobs driving vehicles like tank trucks, limousines or school buses, it is likely that you will have your background scrutinized by the company you have applied to.
