What all does an employer check when they run a background check?
Answered by Susan, Hiring Expert at Praxair, Inc., on Wednesday, January 11, 2012
It will vary from employer to employer.  This could include drug tests, references from past jobs you've held, credit/financial checks, criminal checks, etc.
 
If the job you are a applying for requires you to have a clean driver's license, then the checks could include traffic/driving violations.

That will depend on the company you are applying to and the job that you will be doing for them. It could be as important as working in a school with children or in a bank. Your background check could include: law violations (Convictions felonies and misdemeanors), traffic violations (MVR), sexual offenders registry, credit check, employment history (confirm dates and status of employment), and drug testing. Again, the testing will be determined by the job. Always remember that the decisions that we make today can impact the choices that we have for years to come. Your employment opportunities and earning potential is dependent on a number of factors that we can all control  - Neil Young, Schwan's Recruiter

In most cases a background check  in the area of:
1. employment
2. academic
3. criminal

In some cases when a person is going into sales there is often a DMV check, too.
