Well I know both CVS and Target do as I applied online and had to electronically agree to a credit check. With that being said, and since this is for a cashier job, do you think this would be bad? Why would these companies do a credit check if they were not looking for a red flag?
They are more concerned that you have allot of unpaid debt, someone with debt problems is more likely to steal then someone who has filed bankruptcy and is not facing a huge mountain of unpaid debt. I do a lot of bankruptcies for the local casino employees, they are actually licensed by the gaming commission, if they have a lot of debt the can not get or maintain their license, but if they just file bankruptcy then they can get or keep their license.
Have I satisfactorily answered your question? If I have please remember to click the GREEN ACCEPT BUTTON so that I will receive credit and compensation for my time (doing so does not end our discussion), i will gladly clarify my response or respond to follow up questions if needed.
One type of debt that is not cleared in bankruptcy is student loans of which I have several thousand dollars worth. I would assume that most companies do not look down on this as almost every single college grad has major student loans yes? So they will not see this in the same light as unpaid debt?
Did you need any further clarification on this question?
