    I just had an interview with albertsons today and they wanted to hire me., they did a drug test and back ground check on me, I passed the drug test its my back ground that has an agg assault on it, so the manager told me it could take up to seven days for human resources to give a reply back because they have to do a full back ground check on me now. She said the back ground check normally takes 10 minutes if you have nothing on you. So I dont know what’s going to happen at this point. Just going to see what happens at this point.

    I was offered a cashier position with Albertsons. I passed the drug test; but they did a background check on me, the company they use is Asurint. Asurint reported to Albertsons that I did not pass the background check but did not give a reason why. Seven days later I received a letter from Asurint. The background check referenced a DUI from the year 2011 (please note, this is a misdemeanor and NOT a felony). The letter was dated on December 12, 2017, it was postmarked with the same day, however, I did NOT receive it in the mail until December 17. I immediately called the number referenced in the letter and also sent an email to the email address included in the letter. Their letter indicated I had five days to respond. As already said, I did not receive the letter until 7 days AFTER the date and postmarked letter. I first complained that I was not given ample time to respond, now their letter did not give the SPECIFIC allegation…just what was reported. What specifically does that mean?? Does Albertsons hire felons and NOT a misdemeanors? It is now seven days later again, and I just received a letter back from the Human Resources Dept on behalf of Asurint. Again, no reason for denying me employment but just that “it was “influenced” by the Asurint company. Now I have to wait for a detailed explanation from Asurint, AGAIN. How do I know that my identity has not been stolen? I can’t seem to get a straight answer out of either company.
