#120037 - 10/03/03 03:38 PM Hiring issue

We're trying to establish some procedures regarding the hiring process. I understand that banks (we're FDIC insured) cannot hire an employee that has been convicted of any criminal offense involving dishonesty or a breach of trust...My question: How do other bankers out there ensure that they comply w/ this? What are the steps/procedures in going about finding this type of thing out about potential hires?
I'd really appreciate some help.

Finger print cards go to the FBI to check. The response is a bit tardy but we also ask on the app for employment whether they have been convicted or enter ajudication. We have to fire a few people after starting because they lied.
Societies that do not find work in and of itself "pleasing to God and requisite to Man," tend to be highly corrupt.

You should be conducting criminal background checks in all counties/states where the person lived. Conduct a complete social security number check first to determine the addresses where the person lived, then check against the application and the criminal records.

Our bank uses a company that does both the drug test and the background check and that has been working really well for us - They have found stuff that you don't find through the Sec of State, DPS, etc when you just run the DL number. And their drug test is a really good one that allows our managers to collect specimens (saliva) - They also check educational history (to make sure we didn't get lied to on resumes ,etc) - really good stuff. Make sure you do your homework and find a company that can do all of that!
My comments are absolutely no reflection of, nor influenced by, my employer - take them at your own risk.
