Does Godfather’s Pizza do background checks?
There was nothing we found that speaks on this one way or the other. However, since they did tell us that their HR will have to give approval for hire, we would assume that yes they do.
Something to keep in mind regarding background checks:
There are now several states that only look at an offense if it’s less than seven years old. Here are those states:
- New Hampshire
- New York
We even have some states that’ll only see only guilty convictions. They are as follows:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
It’s unfortunate that we still have states that will look at everything. The following are those states:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
Looking over the company reviews on glassdoor.com, we saw that Godfather’s Pizza earned 3.6 out of 5 stars. This is a good score for a restaurant!
Working at Godfather’s Pizza is a fun job that provides discounts, but it requires long hours on your feet and sometimes not-so-nice customers.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Since Godfather’s Pizza made it clear that felons have to be approved through their HR, we know there will be a few convictions that might have a harder time getting their foot in the door. Here are a few we think they may look closer at:
- Theft or fraudulent credit card use — Any position at Godfather’s Pizza that will have access to cash and credit cards may not be a great position to apply for if you have these convictions.
- Any violent or sexual charges — These convictions are usually looked at for customer service jobs, like front of house positions, since those jobs will include interacting with the public.
- Any driving offense — If you’re applying for a delivery position, these offenses will make it difficult to prove you’d be a good driver for them.
Does Godfather’s Pizza drug test?
We always suggest that when you’re looking for a new job, you be prepared for a drug screen. That being said, there was nothing we see that says if Godfather’s Pizza will request a drug test or not.
