Anyone know what source they use to verify your credit/job history? Do they just rely on a general consumer report agency similar to what they do when you get a Mortgage or do they actually pull your IRS history etc? Just asking because one of my previous jobs was not a w-2 job and I know my current job shows up as me starting in 2005 on my Credit Report which is definately wrong and differs from what I put on my Resume..Just nervous I guess of sending up compliance flags for differing start/end dates on past jobs as I know my criminal history is good and I have no high collections (one minor one for $222)

I'm going through this now. They will call to ask if the dates seem right, if they can't get ahold of people they ask for a w2... and this job wasn't a w2 job either.

...apparently they also check your minor arrest record too, all the way to 15, that has no court record :(

You can ask for a free credit report once per year from the credit reporting agencies. Just say that you applied or a job or for credit, and they have to give you a free report. Then you should write to them to correct any errors.  Do it now, before the incorrect info causes unexpected problem later.  Most people perform a free background check people
investigation to protect their family, friends, employees, finances,
and business. Knowing what the risks are puts you more than half way to
preventing anything bad from happening. A complete free background search people investigation can help you take the steps needed to lower the risks and protect the people and things you care about most.

I just went through that process.  My credit was checked through Transunion and they did a background check through the state police.

FBI Fingerprint Check—FBI fingerprint checks are conducted for many
applications. The FBI fingerprint check provides information relating
to criminal background within the United States. Generally, the FBI
forwards responses to USCIS within 24-48 hours. If there is a record
match, the FBI forwards an electronic copy of the criminal history (RAP
to USCIS. At that point, a USCIS adjudicator reviews the
information to determine what effect it may have on eligibility for the
benefit. Although the vast majority of inquiries yield no record or
match, about 10 percent do uncover criminal history (including
immigration violations). In cases involving arrests or charges without
disposition, USCIS requires the applicant to provide court certified
evidence of the disposition. Customers with prior arrests should
provide complete information and certified disposition records at the
time of filing to avoid adjudication delays or denial resulting from
misrepresentation about criminal history. Even expunged or vacated
convictions must be reported for immigration purposes.
