How long does a background check typically take to go through? Estimated 10 business days seems like quite some time, perhaps I’m impatient.

It honestly could take more. It's such an annoying waiting game. I wish they could just comb through it real quick.

It feels like purgatory trying to leave a toxic job and waiting for all this to be done.

The powers that be will tell you it takes two weeks. I have a friend in law enforcement who got me everything I needed to know -- and a bunch of stuff I'd rather not known -- about some creep that asked me out. I suppose it depends on who you know.

Sadly I do not know anyone who can expedite that sort of information.

In my experience 3-4 business day turnaround is normal

I’m very frustrated because I’ve been interviewing with companies for 6-8 months to only be rejected at the final round consistently.

I have lots of relevant experience and I articulate it well but they don’t think it’s a “fit” for them. Finance firms are the only ones that interview me, can’t break into other industries. I feel trapped in my current role and everything is taking a huge toll on my mental health.

Does anyone have tips on how to manage this?
