After paying for the background check I followed the time frame that was given in the job description after several weeks I contacted the company and hiring manager through email and phone and was given the run around about when I would be deported and the status of my background check. I know that I can pass a Federal background check because I don’t have any criminal history. As a single parent receiving government assistance 198.00 was a sacrifice for me.
