I just passed the interview phase for a contract job with a financial investments company in their technology department as a software engineer. They are running a background check, my criminal history is clean as a whistle but am more worried about my credit history. Let's just say, it's less than stellar. My credit score is low, unfortunately since 2009 I was laid of twice and it really impacted my credit. So does a background check include credit pull and if so can they decide not to hire me even though I not handling money? I'm really nervous, this is an opportunity of a lifetime.
