Because we haven’t received an official response from Capital One, we can neither confirm nor deny they do a background check, but online sources say they do. They are required, however, to adhere to FDIC principles.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
The following states don’t consider information more than seven years old:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.)
These next eight states don’t consider court cases were you were found not guilty:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
However, the states on this next list 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
Because we’re trying to bring you as much information as possible, we utilized the internet to find out Capital One’s ratings. Glassdoor.com rates them at 3.8 out of 5 stars with over 6,000 reviews. The pros of working with Capital One seem to be their benefits and vacation time, while the biggest con is not being able to find work-life balance.
What felonies Capital One will not hire
The company didn’t tell us what felonies they’d consider unhireable if found on your record, and the online reports aren’t strong. See the next section for the ones that will hold you up.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Does Capital One hire felons? Yes, according to the research, they do. However, because this is a financial institution, there are some felonies that might make it tougher to get hired at Capital One. For example:
- Money laundering or other financial crimes
However, if you have been convicted of one of these crimes, you may apply for a waiver with the FDIC and still be considered!
Does Capital One hire sex offenders?
There are no records of Capital One hiring people with sex offenses on their background check, nor any online self-reports from past employees. We simply don’t know.
Does Capital One drug test?
While we can’t say for sure whether or not Capital One will drug test, it’s best to assume they do. No one wants to go through the application, interview process and background check just to fail a drug test, right?
