    Interview Details

    Interview can take approximately four hours and is done by a panel of five USC Leadership folks.Expect reference checks. USC does this before hiring someone and can probably find out a great deal of information about the candidate's knowledge, experience, and work habits by asking for information from present and former employers and from others who are familiar with the applicant.

    There are also incredible background checks. Expect personal credit checks of an applicant's credit and/or criminal record. A "consumer reporting agency" is hired to prepare a consumer report 33 or an investigative consumer report 34 about an applicant, certain disclosure requirements are imposed under the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act. .
