Microsoft background check

How do you know when the background check is complete? Does the immigration process start in parallel? Or do they wait for the check to pass before starting with the Visa process?

    I accepted my offer on Thursday 1/24 and filled out BGC immediately, and my background check came back approved on the following Tuesday 1/29. I’ve heard it can take a while though.

      Did they mail you to inform you about the background check coming through?

      The HR person assigned to me notified me and the hiring manager through an email to work out a start date. The recruiter was also informed

    My background check took a month and a half and was very stressful because one of the companies I worked for got acquired and no longer existed

      At Google? Or MSFT?

      MSFT. Goog was easy. They probably already knew everything about me anyways 🤣

      Thank you! Do they reach out once the prices is complete?

      Mine was almost 4 years ago so the process is pretty different I'm sure. Ask your recruiter, they don't bite.

      Ask your recruiter. I was also wanting for them to contact me back once finished but they won't bother to let you know that it is finished.

    Mine took a couple of weeks, if there is a hiccup they will contact you. They contact every single employer you have had and if unsuccessful, need to provide documents.
