Using personality data collected from employees, objective credit scores obtained from the Fair Isaac Corporation, and performance data provided by supervisors, we found conscientiousness to be positively related and agreeableness to be negatively related to credit scores."

So, combined with a good reference report, an interview debrief report, and a review of a Facebook profile ;-), you can be armed to make the best decision.
 
 
Good review of the research here.
