Sources show Avon doesn’t perform background checks. However, most companies will perform some sort of background check during the hiring process to verify your identity, if nothing else, and confirm you’re legally able to work for the company.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
These states won’t consider information more than seven years old. So, if your conviction was six years ago, you’ll want to hold off a year before applying.
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.)
Even better, the following states don’t consider court cases where you were found not guilty. Eight states are on this list:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
However, be aware if you live in these next states. They’ll look at your whole record, including your not guilty verdicts.
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
