Background Checks Misdemeanors

What are they looking for in the federal background check I will have to submit? Are any misdemeanors disqualifying?

Do UXO companies frown upon prior criminal records, even if they're only misdemeanors?

Background Checks Misdemeanors for UXO
by: Steve Cassidy

This question comes up frequently. I had Secret, Top Secret, NATO Secret, NATO Top Secret and CNWDI-Critical Nuclear Weapons Design Information clearances.

To go to UXO school you're going to need a physician's statement that you're healthy enough to do the work, the 40 Hour HAZWOPER and a background check.

The depth of information I was exposed to being Navy EOD was way deeper than what you're going to need as a UXO Tech so take a deep breath if you're a bit worried about this.

The background checks aren't too deep. They're not going to interview your friends and family like they do for Secret and Top Secret. They're mainly looking for felonies, etc.

I don't think misdemeanors are an issue unless (big IF) it was domestic violence and even some of those are BS charges usually brought on my an angry soon-to-be-x-wife.

If you pass the background, you're good to go with most UXO companies working CONUS. They just want good workers. Just don't get any more trouble once you're at work.

Go ahead and get your own background check. Click Here! It's worth the time and money if you're worried about it before throwing down a deposit for UXO school.

If you have specific questions about this that you would like to discuss privately with me, use the "Contact Me" page and we'll communicate outside this forum.

Thanks for the great questions!
