I have 4 times.
First time was a Commissary (military grocery store) at the Federal Government level. This was my first job. Not really different than working at any other grocery store, but it is still a government job and their background check can detect expunged charges but only as far back as age 16 so they did not see my shoplifting charge. Even though the background check goes as far as 16, if you are over 18 then anything before that does not hold much weight. However I was 16 and a military dependent so this was a none-issue.
Second time was the military. I had to talk to the recruiter, had a very intense background check, had to get medically and psychologically examined, take the ASVAB. Had to pass a Secret Clearance security check as a Corpsman, which means EVERYTHING in my life was briefly discussed. The only higher clearance than a Secret is a top-secret and the subcategories of top secret.
Third time was a State Government job as a secretary. This particular job did not look into expunged charges, but they thoroughly looked into my educational history. They wanted transcripts of every college I attended.
The final one was for County government as a Correction's Officer for the local Sheriff's Office. Since this is a law enforcement agency, they had the most through background check of all the positions I ever applied for and successfully obtained employment. The background check for CO was the same as that of a deputy, except for the fact that the county did not care about credit as a CO. Had I applied for Deputy, my credit would have been considered. For this job, I had to take the Civil Service test and a basic physical.
So many!!! And that too at the age of 28! Damn!
@The_Shadow_Dweller Yup. 2.5 years at the Commissary, 3 years 2 months military, 3 months with the state and 7 months as a CO. My end goal is to be a police officer/deputy. I would rather be on the road than an office or jail assignment.
