How long does it take for the background check/fingerprinting results?
I was offered a job, and my next step is to get fingerprinted. How long does it take for the results to come back? I know I'll definitely pass, but I want to know how long it'll take before I get to sign the contract. I'm sure they have to wait until the fingeprinting results come back.
Fingerprint results can come back in 48 hours. I was told by my local Sheriffs department. Though I have been printed several times, for my certificate of clearance and for a couple of jobs, so that is supposed to help. I would estimate a week at the longest for a new person.
I know - that is a good point! Actually, I think that only happens when they are making emergency appointments, or they hire at the beginning of the summer so by the time they will be teaching, the fingerprints should be in.
