I work as an engineer and haven't been a direct money handler in these roles but have had a credit check run every time I accepted a new job. It is a matter of course in our industry. Employers want another data point in confirming someone is reliable.

Unlike some jobs, it doesn't prevent someone from being hired as an engineer. A relative has been hired even after a recent bankruptcy.
