for one- not all companies check credit- its a very very rare thing they do- unless you work for a bank or handle huge amounts of cash and i know many companies that do not- Wal-Mart, Target, Krogers, Barns & Noble and the list goes on that do NOT touch credit reports, they only reserve the right to.
as far as a cable company reporting to credit- LMAO! That costs $$$$ they won't do that. They just make sure you never get service in that area again. Especially TWC. You can owe TWC Dayton money but go to TWC Mid-Ohio or NY and get services without a problem.
