Ok just a thought bubble that came in my head....as it happens quite often. I would to discuss why companies should be able to run a credit check before they hire you? How do you feel about this? What are the reason's of why they do this? Why isn't just doing a background check good enough anymore? Do you think it is fair or do you think companies are pushing the limits? Especially if the job that is offered only pays $10/hr. I could understand if a person was going to be handling the money in any way or something like a CEO or CFO but for a little bit over min wage?
Let me know how you feel gals....

Depends on the position. However, if I were an employer (say a small business where my livelihood was on the line), I would want ever advantage to provide my business with an employee I could trust. If you employ more than one person, you also are considering the livelihoods of your other employees. If they tend to have bad spending habits, this may be an indication that they might not be the right fit. Similarly, you would want to know their residency status (if they move around a lot, red flag), or change jobs a lot. I don't have a problem with it.

IMO, It demonstrates reliability, accountability, and trust.
It is legal to do and I see no problem with it. I see it like this~ If you have delinquent accounts and are facing legal issues, it may put you in a high risk category to do something "extreme". It may mean you will be more focused on your debt and less on your work. It may demonstrate a trend of poor decision making ability and lack of personal responsibility. If you are going to have to order things from a company credit card, use a cash register, file for business expense reimbursement. or be responsible for handling expensive assets, I can see the need to perform a credit check.
