Accepted an offer and my start date is mid October. I asked about background check results and if they were going to send me an email once everything was cleared. I was told they don’t do that. How am I supposed when to put my 2 weeks notice ? I wanted to take some time off between jobs but I want to have everything cleared before doing so.

Call the background check company. They emailed me when it was completed also sent me a report. It typically takes 2 weeks

I had to call the background check company every day for weeks until it was done.

Yep. Call the company. The background check people told me they would check my employer after I quit or something. But I’ve never done anything interesting so I wasn’t necessarily worried other than my prior employers not responding

Hi, so I’ve been working as a (TCP temporary creative professional) while one of the agency’s employees was on leave. I understood it to be a FT position, clocking in, etc but last week a bunch of employees were on vacation and I didn’t get projects. My work from the week before was all approved, so I had no edits. I asked for work, reached out, etc but ended up with very few billable hours, which annoyed the bosses. Now I’m not sure how to proceed. Do I NGAF, clock in? Or wait for work?
