  • Depends. If they know people, or pay premiums, it can be as little as 24 hours. Generally, HR departments drag their heels all day and take a week to get the paper work sent, then it takes 1 -2 weeks to get the info back, then HR takes another week to decide what to do. So worst case is about a month.

    • I had he interview. She said she liked me and she wanted me to work there. She just said I only need a background check and then I will call you

    • Yes, for sure call after about a week or so for a follow up.

    • The whole background research is sometimes a mental gimmick to get someone worried
