Anyone familiar with CGI Background Check? How long did it take from offer accepted <> completion of investigation?

I was instructed 3-4 weeks. We are hitting week 5 and do not want to keep asking for an update and give the impression I'm impatient. Although I'm not worried it will uncover anything, I am worried of putting all my eggs in one basket.

Would you suggest looking for other opportunities incase?

I just completed a background check that was conducted by HireRight and Sterling. I was cleared in less than 24 hours. But yes, it could go weeks if they can’t find information or if they received contradicting info.


Thank you and congratulations. There was a major delay in getting some required docs from the requested party, I also had to get fingerprinted twice due to a misdirection from Screening Teams. I am hopeful I will hear back soon.

Who company is actually doing the background check ?

I have attended a TCS interview and cleared the HR discussion too. I was asked to upload the required documents and verified too. It's been a month since I received an update. I have called up HR and he said the requirement is frozen. Can I still expect an offer letter or they stopped it.
Now I cannot apply any more jobs also in IBegin portal. It says you cannot apply, becasue the status in portal is showing evaluation is in progress

Hello! I’ve been working in HR for the last 3 years and have always had the feeling that HR is not the right fit for me. I’d love to do something with a bit more creativity involved. I minored in Marketing and was always fascinated by consumer behavior and the design aspect of brand and product marketing but I’m just feeling stuck about making a career transition. I’ve searched for jobs but am not seeing anything of interest right now. Does anybody have any advice about working or entering…


Hi Fishes

I'm using data jpa to connect to oracle DB in our API.

We have one scenario when the DB is down, then also normal flow should work.

Although it is working fine, but when we are checking the logs it's taking more than 1 second just to identify that the DB is locked, this is not within our SLA.

In the normal case it's processing within 200 ms.

We're using Spring Boot, Hibernate, Oracle 19c

Please provide some valuable suggestions from our side

How does it work with you individually consult with a brand? Do you show them ideas you would make, then recommend ways they can go about making it? Or are you expected to get the work produced also?


This is not a sarcastic question, I genuinely want to know, how do you use PTO as an attorney? Is your billable hour requirement for the month offset, or are you expected to make it up? How do you make sure your cases are all good and there won’t be any fires while you’re gone?

Hi all,
I've gone through 4 interviews at a large company and I butchered the 4th one with the VPS. I felt I could've answered some questions better however I wasnt the most prepared. I did kill the first three with my boss to be and his boss so there is that.

The VP said that I would probably speak to his boss while he figures out the logistics at the end of the interview and I didn't ask great questions but i'm not sure if that's a for sure thing.

Does it come off as entitled as I think it does?

I just was in a 3 process interview, which included modern hire interview, interview with hiring manager and interview with senior director(Boss’s boss) for another company. The hiring manager liked me and the interview went well to progress, the next interview also went well. In this situation who would make the final decision to hire me? And what would be the reasons I could miss out on the job after having a 30 min final interview (FIT) with the senior director

What are your thoughts on disclosing strategies during an interview or 1:1 meetings?
