    How are you suppose to find out if you're in the "arc review?" Like I said I emailed my BI Friday, so hopefully on Monday he will email me back otherwise I'll try and give him a call. Ive talked to all my references and none of them have even been contacted yet. So idk what's going on

    If you go to ARC, there is usually something in your background investigation that will not let you proceed without more information. Good luck.

    Maybe your past employers aren’t responding or maybe it’s in ARC review. Just give your background investigator a call. I called mine almost weekly because both of those things unfortunately happened to me during my Bg investigation.

    My BI told me when he called initially to feel free to call or email him with any questions so I'd say worth a shot.

    3/6. Finished background 6/30.

    Looks like tons of places are experiencing week long delays with rapid test results or not offering them at all. Sheesh.
