Does McColl's require pre-employment background checks? What kind of background check does McColl's do and how long does it take to complete?

Yes if you are working with a post office

None no one rang anyone for a check

No say they will but dont i saw my own file and didnt even get references

Always do background checks on all potential employees through references, and they have to disclose any criminal record as we have a post office, for which trained staff would require full CRB checks..

I got a job with them 4 days after being released from a 3 year stretch for attempted bank robbery.

I was a store manager with McColls for a year. I took someone on who failed the credit check and should have been let go immediatley. My Area Manager and Regional Manager advised me to keep him on for a few more weeks anyway until something else was sorted but not to tell him.

1 minute if you can use your arms and legs

No not at all

It will cost you £33 personally

I never got a background check it was my first job as well
