Doesn anybody know if having less than favorable credit is a factor in being hired by the airlines, or if they even check credit?

Actually a credit check, I believe, is part of the FAA-mandated background check. Heck, even Taco Bell will check your credit prior to employment.

I've had 3 FAA background checks, two post 9/11, and have never had my credit pulled.

I dont recall having my pulled by Delta lately but they did when I got hired many years ago. The 10 yr check is looking for gaps and any questionable things. I think they even called the people I had put on their as contacts.

Now they did give me 2 random drug test in 3 days...what a waste of money that was

In the three years I was with Colgan, I only had 1 random test. It was after I was done for the day and it was a breathalizer.
