It is unclear if Baskin Robbins completes criminal background checks on their employees. If your store does a background check, it will typically include all adult convictions. However, each reviewer will make their own decision based on this information and your application.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Certain states don’t consider criminal convictions that are more than seven years old. This makes it much easier for former felons to get hired in states with this law. These states are:

- New York*
(*certain pay and/or salary-bracket may require a check)
Eight states don’t allow employers to see not guilty verdicts:
