  • Fix it tickets?

    Has anyone ever heard of "fix it" tickets affecting someone in the hiring process? Thank you for the feedback.

    No fix it tickets don't go into the system unless you fail to fix whatever it was you were warned about.

      Sounds good to me, thanks for the feedback. I was just wondering because I've had a few of those.

        I am not so sure they do not go into the system. I cannot say otherwise, but it really does not make any sense to write a ticket and not have it hold any weight.
        I am curious to see what others have to say.

          In most states they are reported for stats/Blotter report. Fix it tickets give you an allowed time period to fix the problem. IE Headlight out, improperly displayed license plate. The only state that i know enforces and actually counts points is CA and that's because of all the imports racing around.

            Just to be on the safe side let IA know about them. What were your fix it tickets for? and how many do you have?

                Yea i wouldn't sweat it. Just be up front and honest about it. The big No-No tickets are Speeding, Racing,Reckless driving,Dwi and Dui.

                    Here is the answer I received back from my background investigator:

                    Tickets. Like many things that a background investigator would want to look at, it may not realisticly ever DQ a candidate. However, it may give you some insight as to how responsible a person may be. Alot of young people may not have sufficient history or previously employment that provides indications of how responsible one may be. If an applicant had a number of fixit tickets, I would probably look harder in other areas to see how well they handle other areas of responsiblity.

                      Totally understand what you're saying. I do have a history of employment since I was 18, I'm 21 years old, going on 22 this year. I've never had any issues with past employers, and I've owned my own business at 20 years of age. Do you think with my employment history, those tickets will still affect me as much? And thank you for taking the time and talking to your background investigator.
