I got denied working on a project after they ran my background check, although I already had a public trust before. What could have gone wrong? I have no felonies and no misdemeanors

Also check your credit report. Could be a mistake on that causing an issue.

I’ve passed a dozen or more background checks for different projects and only “failed” one, despite always providing the same info. The one I failed just had stricter standards. The only team members that we could get fully approved were our fresh out of college associates. The rest of us, like me, were only able to get approved for supervised access.

It depends on the agency. I’ve heard for instance that dot checks for major traffic felonies DUI.

Had that happen to me. Sometimes it's the COR 's decision sometimes.

Probably credit... check your credit report, it will show up if the agency pulled it.!

My firm’s IT (especially system saving and file locating function) is so bad 😐😞 and they keep doing updates no one asked them for just to mess with the stuff we already got a hang of without doing anything about the issues we actually need fixed.

I recently had an in-house interview for a large company where the screening interviewer communicated the salary range and told me that I had to let him know on the spot if the range was not high enough. The amount was lower than I initially expected based on my research into the role and company so I was a little surprised. What is the best response to this question bearing in mind that I would like to make it to the next round while negotiating a higher salary?
