I heard the same story, and my question would be "How would you know?" I think they said that the company doesn't need your permission to run a credit check, so they could just do it and you would never know what happened.

In a similar vein, the Boston Globe ran a story in the magazine section yesterday about Googling and the effect that it can have on someone's chances for a job (or date!). See for the article.

Hey all.
Last Friday, NPR ran a story about how companies run credit checks on potential employees. I was surprised, I don't think this has happened to me....has this happened to anyone else? Under what conditions did this occur? What were the results?

I'm just curious, because that's the sort of fellow I am. :-)
