As we’ve said, this depends on the clients CTG is hiring for. There is a good chance that they will perform a background check, likely relating to the particular state the client is located in.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Different states have different background check requirements. Below, you will find a list of states that do not look at any offenses that are older than seven years:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
*sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.
Some states show guilty verdicts, but do not show not guilty verdicts on their background checks. Here is a list of those states:
- New York
Unfortunately, there are many states that show a person’s entire record on their background checks. This includes both guilty and not guilty verdicts. Here are those states:
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
Computer Task Group has a pretty good rating on the website glassdoor.com. Overall, they have a 3.5 score out of a possible 5 and 67% of people say they would recommend working there to a friend.
People praise the collaborative work environment and the ability to work from pretty much anywhere. Most people liked that CTG works with reputable clients such as IBM. This helps with job security.
We did find complaints about contracts abruptly ending. It seems that this, again, has to do with the clients that CTG contracts with. We also found complaints about slow email response times from management. As a former felon, these are not things you need to worry about. Getting a job here seems like it could be a great opportunity.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
You may still be wondering, does Computer Task Group hire felons? Again, this will be on a case-by-case basis depending on individual clients, but we do want to talk about some charges that could keep you from working here.
Since this is pretty much all computer work, computer crimes will likely be frowned upon. In particular, companies may be wary of hiring those convicted of hacking or online fraud charges. Identity theft charges could keep you from getting hired.
Charges involving Internet sex crimes will also be scrutinized, as well.
If you have been convicted of any charges related to security or fraud, you may not get a job at CTG considering you will be working with sensitive information and personal data.
On the plus side, this can be a good job for hiring felons because there is little face-to-face interaction. Most of this is working from a remote location.
Does CTG drug test?
In our research, we could not find any information about CTG drug testing. This will be up to their clients.
