Online sources don’t say whether or not Baja Fresh Mexican Grill will do background checks. Keep in mind, though, that most companies do some sort of check during the hiring process, even if it’s just to confirm your identity and that you’re legally able to work for their company.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
The amount of information a company can learn from running a background check depends on which state you live in. If you live in the following states, background checks only go back seven years:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.)
If you were found not guilty, these states will never see it:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
However, be aware if you live in one of these states. They will see everything on your record, including the not guilty verdicts:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
