    Default Need background help.

    Question: Is prior psychological testing accessible to background investigators?
    I was involved in a psych test about 3 years ago in which I did not pass and I am involved in an extensive background investigation now for another position. I am wondering if the background investigator can go back to my psych test and see information that I gave on that test and in the meeting with the psychologist. I have since gone through another psych. test and passed successfully getting the job and I don't want prior failing to screw me up now. I have to list any place in which I was involved in a hiring process and was not chosen to move forward so they would have all the information about the previous department. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you very much.

    Default backgrounds

    Backgrounds are not as deep as you think. They usually look for run-ins with the law and such. Psyc test usually are not look at. They usually say...Have ever been cited or convicted of a crime. If they ask then you should tell them. Never try to hide anything they ask you for. If you do then they can disqualify you.
