Do places actually follow through with police background checks?

It's becoming increasingly common. Some insurance companies are starting to require it and it is exceedingly easy to do now
Yes, especially government positions.
Ok thanks guys. I’ll just wait it out.
Government jobs do 100%.
Yes, I'm in skilled trades, mostly union, structural steel, it's becoming more frequent.
I worked for banks for a while and I can tell you we absolutely did police checks as well as general background checks. One guy I wanted to hire was being sued by the IRS in the US and we found that out ...
Check with the company to see what background companies they will accept. My company will not accept 3rd party checks.
3 of my workplaces did background checks. One guy I remember was how perfect he appeared in person and he was a joy to talk to. And then his background check arrived and he had like 8 theft charges. This was when I worked at the source so needless to say my boss couldn't hire him
