  • Hiring process

    I am so nervous. My husband submitted his application for Gwinnett early Monday morning, and he got a call today asking him to come in next Monday for a background check. They said it would take a few hours. I am confused because it took a week to fill out the initial application, and I thought many of those questions were part of a background history. (Have you ever used drugs, Have you had traffic citations and if so name them, ect.) What else do they want that could take a few hours? Do they interview you about your answers, or do you have to fill something out all over again?

    What I am really nervous about is the credit history. I am so scared that I will mess that up for him. His credit was much better before we married, but when we married we got a loan to help pay down a bunch of debts my ex left me with. We did a credit score check, and his was "fair", just 2 points down from being good. How important is credit in the process? Would they understand that his score is only worse because of me? I felt so guilty when he first agreed to help, and now I feel awful. This job is very important to him, and I don't want to be the reason he misses out. :-(

    When I applied with Gwinnett, they just sent background package in the mail 10 days or so after I applied with a letter of instruction on how and when to complete it, etc. I didn't get a phone call, and I didn't have to go for any type of interview.

    Narco, any thoughts?

      normally a group of applicants go together and get instructions on how to fill out the big background booklet and have a q and a session. im not sure of they still do it like this or not.

        Maybe it is different for prior service/laterals and entry level.

          Thanks, guys. I appreciate any help. This whole process is new and unlike any other job application we've ever done. I guess I am more worried about things than my husband. :-) He tends not to worry so much.
          So, do you get a chance to explain things, like the credit? Or do they just look at it and write you off if it's not what they are looking for? I am hoping they are situational about it.

            I really dont think you get a chance to explain, but I could be wrong..
