Well we're still waiting for the job to start they told DH that he had it, but they ran the criminal background check, which he passed, and now their checking out his GED diploma. I don't know why they didn't check this out before telling him he had the job, but I guess thats how they do it now. The company that bought the old company that he use to work for now takes 6 weeks to hire someone. In the old days LOL all you had to do was show up and if they needed someone they hired you but not now.

My DS got the results back on his tests they were all negative  ,the doctor prescribed him some antibiotics and he is doing better , 

FIL is doing better the doctor put him on a different medicine to slow down his heart, he's doing much better, starting to do things around the house and he went to church yesterday.

Our veteran friend is back in the hosp we had to take him the day before valentine day they don't think it will be much longer the doctor wants to keep him in the hosp so he'll get 24/7 care.

So pretty well everything is going good except for our friend, hopefully everyone else is having good days

Praying that everything will keep going good for everybody

Good luck with your people. I've been worried about my friends, too.

As for the background check, I am guessing that it's cheaper for them to do the check just for the one person they want to hire, rather than for everyone they might hire. Also, they'd want to make the job offer ASAP, so as to hold onto the applicant they want. This is at not cost to the employer. They can always rescind the offer if the background check doesn't work out.

Fingers crossed that the paperwork gets turned around soon. FYI I've done a lot of hiring lately and its common to give a job offer pending references and background check. Fingers and toes crossed!

Paws crossed.  I know when my hubby got his last job, I thought the waiting would drive me nuts.  Best of LUCK!!

Yea, we don't do background where we work, but we make a decision, then call references, then make the job offer. They make a decision and then only have to make reference calls on one person. But yea, I have heard that what you are describing is pretty common. Same thing with SO's DD recently. Had to jump through a few hoops first, even after being "hired."
