Quoting Nymphadora:" Riiiiiiggghhhttt? You try to live within your means and it hurts your credit and, thus, may prevent ... [snip!] ... a good paying job? Dumb. I stand firmly that my credit information is none of your business unless you are loaning me money."
Quoting lilmzzgreeneyez *NMOA*:" now i know why i have been having so much trouble getting a job lately i have been applying to HUNDREDS ... [snip!] ... and i have had only ONE interview and no job still. my credit is TERRIBLE and i havent had luck in finding a job since 2008 "
Quoting Back to Noob Status:" What kinds of jobs are you applying to? Do you have any certificates/schooling? How does your resume look?"
Quoting Back to Noob Status:" Depends on the job. If the job has to do with financing, accounting, money-managment, then yes. A company should be allowed to ask for a credit report. But a job completely unrelated to finance? No."
Quoting lilmzzgreeneyez *NMOA*:" its all retail, desk jobs, things that mostly pay minimum wage. and i have my GED and no other schooling ... [snip!] ... right now. and my resume is just simple because the only skills i have are proficiency on the computer and being bilingual."
