Does Big Boy do background checks?
Big Boy restaurants didn’t let us know about their background check policy. We also couldn’t find any information in our research. In many instances, restaurants don’t perform background checks. However, we can’t say one way or the other. However, each state does background checks differently.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Some states only have checks that go back seven years. That’s great news, especially if your criminal history is from a while ago. Here are those states:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
*sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.
Some states cover your entire history, but only of charges in which you were found guilty. That means that dropped charges or those where you were found not guilty are left off. Those states include:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Unfortunately, there are many state background checks that show everything and that go back indefinitely. This includes charges you were found guilty of as well as any dropped or not guilty charges. Here are those states:
- Indiana (intensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
