Based on what we can see, it looks like Frito-Lay will do background checks.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Where you live can have a big impact on what shows up. For example, some states limit how far back their checks go. In the following states, Frito-Lay will only look seven years into your past:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
*certain pay or salary bracket positions sometimes require one.
Other states will only detail crimes you have been convicted of. In these places, not guilty verdicts will not show up on your background check:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Sadly though, most states include everything in their background checks. In these places, background checks will reveal your entire history:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
