I recently got a conditional employment offer with a county jail pending my background investigation. From what the county is telling me is that the Sheriff's Department is going to call my past employers and ask for my personnel file to be sent to them. Out of curiosity, has anyone else here experienced this? I can't really see all of my past employers going through the effort of copying and mailing the entire personnel record to the county. This just sounds fishy to me.
Anyone have any thoughts?
