Because we haven’t been able to make contact with the company and our sources are inconclusive, we can’t say whether or not Avis Budget Group will do a background check.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Background checks are not created equally and each state is different. For example, if you live in these states, they don’t look at any convictions that are seven years old or more:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
And these eight states aren’t interested in any cases where you were ultimately found not guilty:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Be aware, however, if you live in the states on this list. They can, and will, look at your whole record, including the not guilty verdicts:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
We did some online research and found that glassdoor.com gives Avis Budget Group a 2.8 out of 5 star rating. The largest influencing factors are the benefits and room to grow within the company. The biggest drawback seems to be the long hours.
