Possible Start Date and Reimbursement for fingerprinting

As part of the hiring process for a job I applied, I had to do a fingerprinting test which I completed about a week ago. The company hired to do this for the employer said that it would take 72 hours for them to get the results back. I still have not heard anything about a possible start date. In addition, I had to pay for the fingerprinting out of my own pocket, should I contact the company to see if they are going to reimburse me or should I…

Sometimes we have to be a bit patience, i would have wait the following week that should have been enough time for them to make…

Failed Drug Test Policy

It's truly amazing that you can have a perfect driving history. Never miss a day at work but fail a single random drug test and basically find yourself unemployable in the trucking industry.
This happened to me. Lost my job. Immediately completed the DOT SAP requirements and passed a second test within 30 days but no one will hire me during to stick company policies.
I'm in northern California. Looks like I will have to change careers just to put…

I've not read all the comments so my comment here may be repetitive.
Have you specifically stated in your application that you…

How long after your drug screening and background check does it take to get an email to know whether you were accepted or not?

I checked on Job Force and it said Starting Date pending. What does that mean? I have not received any E Mails or Calls

ghosted after a position was offered.

Opinons or suggestions: I was recently awarded an offer for a position with Parks and wildlife department in IT, after about a month of waiting for a decision, they finally made me an offer for the job based on stating I was their #1 choice. Then I was instructed to get my background check done at a 3rd party fingerprinting company. after getting a clear background check I was then waiting on my start date which should have been immediately, but…

Sorry Parks and Recreation and you waited a month to hear from them I'm hoping you were working a steady job as you were waiting…

Every job I have applied for has resulted in the company going with other candidates. I have made sure with every job I have applied for that I meet all of the requirements. Yes, I have got an interview with a few of them but still they go with other candidates. I don’t understand why I can not get any of these jobs. I don’t think it has anything to do with my background cause when I worked for Walmart 6 years ago, my background check came back…

Am failing

I keep applying for jobs and nothing. I've healed jobs for over 2 years but we just moved to a new town and my background is not doing me justice. People do change people do want a better life for them and their families but there is no one giving chances. Just feel stupid and hopeless.

Never, ever give up. Own it.

Drug Test

I have been hired on to a company that does things like resets and inventory- however, for a specific job the store requires a drug test. However, I am on a controlled Narcotic due to a broken toe that I sustained while I was not working (day off). I know that this drug would show up in my system. I don't take it unless I absolutely need it, which is very little. However, when I do take it (not very often) I can't do much work or anything…
