Yes, FedEx does use background checks as part of their hiring process.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
There are many states that only perform a background check that goes seven years back. Do you have a conviction older than that? You’re in luck in these states:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
*sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.
Some states only show the convictions you were found guilty of on their background checks and leave off not guilty charges. Here is a list of those states:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Unfortunately, there are still plenty of states that show everything on their background checks. This includes the charges you were convicted of as well as charges you were found not guilty of. These states are listed here:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina

What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
We know you may still be wondering: Does FedEx hire felons? We think they do, but we want you to be aware of some convictions that may make it harder to gain employment.
FedEx employees deal with a bunch of valuable items. Because of that, people with multiple theft convictions may have a hard time gaining employment.
We also need you to be aware that those with sex crime convictions may be passed over if you are looking for a delivery driver job. This is because you will have plenty of contact with the public and FedEx may want to be cautious. That does not mean you shouldn’t apply here, however. There are many jobs that require no interaction with customers.
Does FedEx drug test?
FedEx confirmed that they do drug test as part of their hiring process.
