    My new job experience

    Just wanted to let folks know who are wondering about disclosing a bankruptcy during or after an offer stage.
    I am in IT, got a job offer this past Friday and when I knew they were going to run a credit check when they did my background check(they flat out told me this when I filled out the background check paperwork), I called HR and disclosed my bankruptcy and told them the circumstances. They told me they did not hire based on credit, and the only thing I would need to worry about is if I was wanting to get a (totally optional) corporate credit card which I don't need anyhow.
    Just some hope for folks out there in half blue/half white collar work.
    Unless you know they are going to run a credit check in the background check, don't worry about it. When you know they are going to run a credit check, I would certainly bring it up to make sure you find out the answer rather than wasting your night worrying about it rather than losing much needed sleep!
    Keep the faith!

    Do companies normally do credit check when they are hiring a new employee?

      sandrajames - it depends on the industry/job you are applying to. Most companies do not. But places like banks do.
