    Hey. I have a question for those who had to go thru a background check before getting hired with swift. How long does it typically take for the final review process to finish after speaking with security? I got the email on the ninth and called them that same day to confirm what was on my background. One felony from 2007, two tickets from 2009 resulting from the same incident. Fleeing to elude arrest and reckless driving. Speeding tickets are also on my driving record but the last one I got was in 2015. The very last ticket I got was for driving with no insurance a little over a year ago. That's it. How long would it take for all that to be reviewed? I did get an email the next day from Swift with a letter. The letter said something about Due to some information in my report, my application may be disqualified from further consideration unless supplemental information is supplied within five days. Is that a "No" on getting hired? Just wondering. Thanks in advance.

    they want that supplemental information.

    most likely, from you.

    Well, I told them everything I could recall when I spoke to them on the phone after getting the email.

    they may need that all documented in writing, with dates, etc,etc.

    i dunno, start applying elsewhere's and document everything at all one time..simply by "memory" may not cut it. documents is what they wanna see.

    I'd call them and find out ASAP. I would be on the phone selling myself.

    Yep.
    But its a numbers game and some company out there might hire you.. Then the problem arrises when the company tries to insure the fresh off the boat new hire.

    I did get a message over their tenstreet app from someone named sherry. She said it was just a routine letter that they send out for people in my case. Frankly, I don't trust her. I really don't trust much of anyone.

    start applying at other places, leave no stone unturned or forgotten.

    best to jot down things (times, dates, places, charges, disposition of charges, etc,etc) in a memo book for future use as well.
