***Onboarding*** The most important document to get back first is the Webster Bank documents. This is how they initiate the background screening. They want this back to them within 24 hours of accepting – otherwise Pride does not think the candidate is serious and dependable. After they receive the document, they send the candidate the screening information. The candidate must schedule the screening with 24 hours, and complete the screening within 48 hours after scheduling. Failure to do so will lead to the candidate losing the position – as they are considered non-compliant. Screening can take up to 10 days to clear.
