This post is directed towards those who work at D.E. Shaw or have friends who do:
I've received a job offer from the company and had talked with their HR department regarding the background check that I went through (transcripts, references, past employment, credit history) as I was doing the typical multiple round interview process with them to make sure everything was cleared because I had worked in India for two years; and in the past, there had been issues with verifying this. But the HR department said that everything was cleared by their 3rd party vendor so I was good to go.
Everything sounds good, right? Wrong.
Recently, I got involved with a serious misdemeanor (don't ask how) and I'm worried that D.E. Shaw is going to run another employment check after I accept my offer and begin employment. Does anyone know if they run another background check after you accept your offer or after you begin working? I think with investment banks, they do background checks after you accept the offer -- but is it different with D.E. Shaw given that they've already done a background check on me?
