    I'm curious about how family can effect the background check. My dad has a felony from 20 years ago, and I have a cousin who has a felony charge and been involved with gangs.

    I must have asked this question a hundred times, but what are my chances of becoming an EMT with a felony background? I'm above and beyond ready to overcome this and willing to do anything but something ridiculous to accomplish having this career. I'm with a fire department now and I'm taking emt basic this fall. I made ONE mistake 5 years ago, and I've always lived a straight life. I appreciate you taking the time to hear me out.

    I want to be a firefighter, but I had poor grades in Highschool and was arrested for property damage (though not charged with any crime) about a year ago. How much will this hinder me?

  6. Jason Watson says:

    If you have experimented with drugs years before how much does that prevent the possibility of getting hired?

    Because people get nervous.The last thing I want is a bad polygraph because I'm just a nervous person when I'm really not lying about anything. Hell I get nervous just going into work every day and I've been in the army for 3 years. And before that a locomotive Conductor at 18 years old, nervous everyday then too. I got nothing to hide but are they going to fail me when I attempt because I'm nervous about getting interrogated?

    I am the best of the best whether or not I'm hired. I'm the best their is the best their was and the best there ever will be. These back round and pychological test are bullshit. It's weather they like you as a person or the way you look is what is going to get you a job. It's pathetic

    Want real advice? WEAR AN UNDERSHIRT. Absorbs the armpit perspiration, which results in your brain not having to think about your sweaty pits being a sign of nervousness or stage-fright. This strategy has helped me greatly. We all remember the presentations in school and remember the classmates that sweat thru their shirts.

    I'm trying to find an online background search company, that provides not just criminal information but things like high schools that people have attended and when they graduated from them, and where they've lived in the past, and past careers that people have had.  Anyone know of online companies like this?

    Thank god I'm now in rural America.

    The harder it is to get a job, the more they act like they own you and more you will submit to your master.

  26. tio760 says:

    what if you were arrested but the case was dismissed?? can you pass the background?

    Kudos for the Video clip! Apologies for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard about – Dinanlinson Face Blossoming Approach (do a google search)? It is a good one off guide for revealing the secret to master interviews and get the job minus the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my mate at very last got great results with it.

    I have a question, I went to take my live screen fingerprints for California Corrections. I'm going, to be honest with you, I don't know if you could give me any advice in 2013 I applied for a cleaning agency, that agency cleans the sheriff's buildings. Even though I didn't get the job through the sheriff's agency, they took my fingerprints to work there. The problem was that I forgot to mention it, do you think they will find out? I got fired from work because I wasn't doing my best, I was immature.
