It's been over 3 weeks, or 16 business days, since my fingerprint. The initial email from the HR said it would take 5 days, which I doubted, but I didn't think it would take this long. Is this normal? The background check agency is First Advantage. I checked in with HR after 2 weeks and they said they're still waiting to get results back from courts and stuff. Waiting mindlessly is frustrating.
How long did yours take?

I used First Advantage, took less than 24hours from the time I dropped the FedEx package in the mail. Called me early next day to confirm
