Questions for fish who are currently in Deloitte GPS .. How extensive or much of a pain is the background investigation. I have nothing nefarious in my background, but am currently filling out forms for federal background for current job.. Is a pretty convoluted process, and the ADHD side of myself is getting pretty overwhelmed. Does it depend on project. Or does everyone in Deloitte GPS goes through full background check as well?

Everyone goes through same background check. If you have nothing big in your past, don’t worry about it. It’s standard for all companies and it’s less invasive than the fed Gov process. I know ppl who have had DUIs etc and nothing has been bad enough to not get the job.
