Does Domino’s Pizza do background checks?
Domino’s Pizza didn’t say whether or not they perform background checks. However, we did some research online and it seems that some locations do.
Again, this is likely because each franchise owner is responsible for their own hiring. There is not a single overall company policy regarding this, though.
We have seen that corporate employees are subject to background checks.

Domino’s Pizza has a bunch of reviews on the site glassdoor.com. They have an overall 3.4 out of 5 rating with 59% saying they would recommend working there to a friend.
Many people said that Domino’s Pizza has a great workplace culture. They also said that there are plenty of hours available if you want to work them. The hours are flexible and the environment is fast-paced.
People complained about the pay. Delivery drivers in particular said that they had to rely on tips to make decent money. That doesn’t help when business is slow. Drivers complained about wear and tear on their personal vehicles.
These ratings don’t mean you shouldn’t apply. People are more likely to post their complaints than their praises, unfortunately. So keep that in mind as you read reviews.

Domino’s Pizza does not say whether they drug test or not, but this will also be up to individual franchise owners. In our research online, some people say they were drug tested while others said they were not.
