So I was offered a job I really want, and the last obstacle for me is the drug testing, background check credit report and all that stuff.
They told me it would likely take another week and change to get the results to everything, how common is it that any of this could be an obstacle to getting a first job and what exactly are they looking for ?
I have NO worries about the drug test, as I dont do drugs (although I have taken OTC cold medicine which contains pseudoephed) . But I have no idea how big of a deal any of the other stuff is. I mean ive never got arrested or anything or claimed for bankruptcy and stuff.
And all my references will check out, is that pretty much it ?
Ive just always wondered what exactly this stuff entails, and if its really anything worth worrying about
