What is the benefit of background checks?

Background checks ensure the integrity of the organization and the safety of the customer’s premises. Individuals may not be appropriate for certain positions due to some aspect of their history. A background check cleared engineer will be more likely to get a job offer in comparative circumstances.

What does the background check include?

The background check includes a motor vehicle record review as well as a criminal background check.

The evaluation of background checks can vary from city to city and is based on criteria specified in local laws and regulations. Convictions for felonies, violent crimes, sexual offenses, and registered sex offender status, among other types of criminal records, are also disqualifying. Pending charges for those categories of crimes are also disqualifying, unless and until such charges are resolved.

Applicable laws specifying the criteria Field Engineer must follow when reviewing background check results vary considerably by state, so individuals might be rejected for criminal offenses not indicated here.

Subject to state and local law, background checks may include criminal records from throughout a person's adult life. Subject to and in accordance with state and local law, some types of criminal convictions such as murder, sexual assault, terrorism-related offenses, and other serious criminal convictions will result in disqualification if they occurred at any time in a person's lifetime.

Periodically, we re-run background checks for current Engineers.
