I just ran one before I bought my car and there was nothing on my credit cards and I know both have some debt on them.
It shows a total $$ at the end of the report

I dont know why you'd be ashamed. Sounds like you're working very hard to sort your finances out. That's commendable.

If I were in your position, I'd attach a note to the application stating 'You choose not to sign/fill in details of this as yet, but will be happy to talk to someone in HR upon interview or other, during a later stage of application.' US laws are not something I have any clue about, but your credit rating is confidential. It is not relevent to an employer. What's Hardees? A type of restaurant? It's absolutely not their business. You're in a catch-22, but stay pleasant, you do need the job. I'd not sign anything like that. Ask them to show why they need that information. Place the onus back on them.

Good luck.

Butterscotch, my sister just recently got a job with Hardee's, seriously - but in a general manger position. I assure you she is in a great deal of debt and if they ran this check on her they would have found that out. Point is, if they did - it didn't matter because they started her out making very good money. I do not know however, if she had to sign this disclaimer.
Lastly, I work for a debt consolidation/settlement company and if you would like more information on how the company I work for can help you, just PM me and I'll be glad to give you the contact information. Good luck, and with a little patience and sacrifice you can get out of this and not completely destroy your credit for the next decade.

Regarding the investigative interviews, that costs a lot of money.
The government does interviews like that for people applying for positons requiring a high level of security clearance.
Personally I think they are bluffing a bit to keep away shady applicants.

Whoa...this is pretty full on!! I work in health care, and only one job I've had even did a police background check (which was fair enough, seeing the job was at a children's hospital) But i've never been asked ANY of those questions, either in an application or interview situation.
I think if I was asked to disclose that kind of information I would be rather hesitant to do so

I agree with ntalwar...these background checks cost a lot of money...I think they are trying to weed out super-shady charachters!

In my last two jobs, I have gone through these checks, as well as 10-year work history, FBI/postal fingerprinting and a drug screening. All that and they still ant to "screen" me daily before I get to my office.
