EMCOR does do background checks.
However, that can mean different things depending on where you live.
There are some states that only look seven years into your past, for example. Here are those states:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
There are also some states that won’t look into things you were found not guilty of. In the following states, EMCOR will only learn about your convictions:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Unfortunately, though, some states include everything in your background check. If you live in one of these places, EMCOR will see everything, including things that you were found not guilty of:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia

What felonies EMCOR will not hire
EMCOR most certainly has criminal records in mind that would get in the way of their hiring process, as you’ve gathered by now. They didn’t share what the names are, so see below for what our research showed to be the most problematic charges.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Because most of the jobs at this company require the operation of heavy tools and machinery, it’s safe to say that they won’t look kindly upon substance abuse convictions. However, if your substance abuse offenses were minor, or if you’ve taken observable steps towards rehabilitation, it’s possible that the company will be willing to work with you a little bit. Theft and violent crimes may also be barriers on your road to getting hired.
Sometimes companies are more open to hiring people with older offenses, so that might weigh in here. The severity of the crime may also determine if it’s possible to get a job at EMCOR with a felony.
Does EMCOR hire sex offenders?
We’re not confident they will, but the company didn’t tell us one way or the other. Plus there were no online reports.
Does EMCOR drug test?
It looks like EMCOR Group will drug test before they finalize their hiring decisions. Additionally, they also reserve the right to issue random drug tests if they feel it’s necessary. With these things in mind, it’s a good idea to make sure that you can pass their tests at any time.
