RE: credit check for interviews
From an economic standpoint, I can see why some companies would want to knowif you pay your bills on time. If you're the type of person who is deep in debt and/or has credit problems, what's to prevent you from jumping ship at the first company that dangles a higher salary in your face? Does poor credit mean you'll leave at the first better offer? Of course not. Does it mean you can't do your job? Of course not.
This is purely speculative, of course, but I'd sure feel a lot more comfortable if I knew I was hiring someone who's exercised some responsibility in their private finances as well as their professional work. Just my 5 pesos.

Oh yeah, that has been a BIG sore spot with me. What right do they have to check that and just what in the world does it matter? If I have blemishes on my credit report, does that mean I do not do my job? Sorry, but I don't see the relation. I can understand the criminal background check but whether or not you pay your bills on time? Geez, someone explain that to me.
