Getting FNMA is not lucky it's the business equivalent of Ebola. No one wants FNMA and when I see it on a work order I kick the work back.

Can anybody clarify?

I'm currently in the process of getting set up with Cityside. I have my training scheduled for Thursday. I've previously worked as a sub for a pretty large Safeguard vendor and learned how the business worked there. When that vendor messed something up, he got shut down and I lost that line of work and went back to working in private houses. It's good work, but it's not steady enough for my family's needs. I had applied to the more well known companies (won't say names) and got turned down because I have a couple misdemeanors on my record. Nothing related to the job or anything. The bigger companies seem to outsource their background checks and if the code comes back wrong then it's a no go.
Anyways, the people that I've spoken to at Cityside seem honest and to the point. They seem to know the deal and how everything works. And for me, I'm at the point where I'm just excited to be able to become a direct vendor. I have all the gear, the know how, and I want to do it right.
Any feedback you guys have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Brian

I'm not saying the background check system is perfect, but there are guidelines in this business that most of the nationals follow. Basically if you don't have a perfectly clean record, you're a no go in their eyes. You will have much better luck working for the broker if you can get an in with one or a few. Better pricing, and faster pay too. I've been trying for a few years with no luck. I have been asked to do a few bids and that's about it.

How long ago were the convictions and what were they for(You don't have to answer these. It's more for your thinking)? I have an employee that had a few issues almost 10 years ago, and he was denied based on his record. I had him write an email back to the company explaining his new situation (Family, time from last conviction, stable work history), and he eventually got it overturned.

I'm not saying that this will be true in your case (Without knowing specifics), but you have the opportunity to go back and tell them why they should approve you. It won't hurt to give it a shot.

You might count your denials as a blessing though. Tough work for such little pay working for these regionals and nationals. Best of luck to you.

Find a public defender that is has left working for the city or county and has their own privet practice. Ask them to petition the court or judge to expunge the former old charges. If its crime is keeping you from finding a job and they are minor charges the judge will expunge the charges and remove them from your record. But you will have to pay a fee to have them removed.

The reason you want to find a public defender that has a privet practice is they are close to court system and usually have close ties to the judges and most likely you wont even go before the judge. Its just a matter of the judge signing off on an expungement charge that keeping you from finding employment.

Its quite common and takes little time.
