How far back and how thorough of a background check do most agencies conduct? Dentsu Aegis for example

Background checks can only verify dates of employment and criminal history. How far back employment history goes depends the ppl doing the check, criminal history is whatever is on your record regardless of when it happened. Good luck.

Going through this process currently via HireRight. Nothing odd about my background but I am an immigrant and it's 100% harder regarding proof of everything before moving to USA. Also the system keeps locking me out and I'm not resigning before the process is complete which impacts my start date.

I failed a background check & still got the job, FWIW. My former agency was small and didn’t have HR to keep records current so my data was deemed incorrect when in fact it was easily proved agency had not kept records of anyone’s employment but still.

Not thorough. 10ish years? Depends on the shop and the crime... Roommate had a misdemeanor that never seemed to be an issue (he’s been at shops owned by the big holding companies). Most places will ask if you’ve committed a felony during the application process - so guessing that’s the big hurdle You can always explore getting your record expunged. Not sure how that’s done...
