    has anyone actually heard of anyone being DQ'd due to background investigation, whether it be fired from a job or prior arrests? That is seriously my only obstacle, I passed my physical, will pass my psych(i hope, lol) and will more than likely be all good with my medical(few surgeries, nothing serious, great shape) , just have a few minor arrests and couple of summons.

    EDIT: Also that sucks they send letters to your past two jobs, my current, It'll be great but the one before this, was panera bread, i worked there for like 3 weeks and hated it so I kinda quit on the spot , I hope it doesnt effect me negatively

    I really wish we had more inside into the ratio of this next class. I am curious how the residency credit is working out and if lots of people claimed it who cant prove it.

    I honestly don't know for certain. I have one job that closed down and I never had a direct manager, so I have no idea how that works.

    Same boat with you guys as far as past employment, only thig I'm really worried about. Got fired from a job when I was 16 and had a few jobs where I only worked there for a few weeks, am a union electrician now so hopefully they see past the retail and odd jobs

    I would think so.. I'm sure your investigator had to work a few crappy jobs before..

    It's life.. ESP in a tough economy today.. Unemployment/multiple jobs/getting laid off.. Etc.

    In my opinion, I think you fellas are blowing this out of proportion a bit. Obviously the investigators have to take into account of the turnover at some of jobs you're going to list. For 6019, I listed 2 jobs that I knew my managers/bosses weren't going to be there. I would say you'll be fine unless you got locked up at the job for stealing or beating up your boss lol.

    I'm surprised to hear they went back beyond 5 years.

    I hear you.. Obviously they know the turn around rate/ bosses or co workers moving on etc..

    I'm just super paranoid because this is my only shot due to my age..I just want to prepare for anything that can go wrong.

    Me too - sucks being old men in this game. I stopped working for my previous employer once 6019 got jammed up so I'm actually kinda interested to see what he writes on that report. Like I said though, I wouldn't be too worried about it unless you had some legal issues at your old job(s).

    I don't think it will affect anything for this class, but you never know.

    Yeah - when I hear the word "settle" I think of $$$ damages so I doubt it ends up affecting classes. Although I've been surprised before.

    List your range in the sig if you don't mind. This way when we all discuss possibilities, we can compare. I was gonna ask you your score but figure I asked you already.

    4th class would be awesome. Hope many classes total again, 8?
