    I know this issue had more to do with an erroneous background report, but I wanted to share this artcle from the WSJ. It sights that more and more employers are conducting background AND credit checks, and then they are making hiring decisions based on that info. Like it or not, it's happening.

    Yes, and as we have seen the quality of these reports vary. Bad credit does not necessarily make for a bad employee.

    Due to the economy I have also seen numerous pre-qualifications on jobs such as a college degree. Now employers are putting college degree requirements on jobs you do not go to college for. They think this will get them a better employee but this is actually self defeating. People who go to college did not go so they could get these jobs and will leave at the first chance. They only take jobs like these to get money in while they make applications elsewhere in the field they studied for.

    I can understand the criminal background report as we as part of our jobs enter peoples yards. I asked one foreman "You do know that two of your locators are pedophiles registered as sex offenders?".

    I think generalizing that all Locators with a degree only become a locator to get money, till they find their actual career is misleading. I think most people who became locators became locators to earn money to hold them over till they find a career.

    I don't think any of us came out of high school saying........" hmmm, I wanna be a utility locator"

    Also, Only the smart ones with a degree leave locating. I have a degree, and i'm still locating...
