Hi, I got a job offer contingent on a successful background check. I have a debt of USD936.00 listed as non performing/ defaulting account (just checked my credit score today in anticipation of what they might find). Is this something that can make the firm withdraw the offer?

During Covid, I got a salary reduction and missed payments but once the reduction was lifted I started paying my loans again and missed this particular one and it got listed sometime in September 2021.

If you want to save yourself a lot of angst while awaiting clearance simply email HR and tell them about this noting while not part of check you simply wanted to be transparent. This is so benign anyway.

We inherited one team manager from another team that would never do any work and would always just copy and paste everyone else’s. In a span of six months all five of us including our managers got a new role and now she’s there alone. I can’t say I didn’t orchestrate most of us leaving 😂

America was founded in most part because groups of people were being persecuted for their religion (because they were TOO puritanical). They then stole land and used slavery to burn through a new continent and carve out a country for themselves. We should not be surprised by these constant disappointments from our nation, it’s built in and by design. My “unpopular” opinion: the settlers and forefathers should have been persecuted harder.
