The company website says they participate in the E-Verify program. This is how they confirm that job applicants are eligible to work in the United States. Other than that, we can’t say how exactly does Goodyear do background checks.
Be aware of the following information about how each state does background checks:
If you haven’t been arrested for at least seven years, don’t worry. In these states, that’s the only time period they look at:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.)
Here are the states that don’t consider any not guilty verdicts:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Having said that, the majority of states will review your entire record — even not guilty judgements! Here they are:

What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
If the job you apply for requires driving, then offenses like DUIs or vehicular assaults may be a problem. The company wants you to have a clean driving record. They don’t need you to be a risk on the job or pay higher fees to their insurer so you can drive vehicles at work.
Working cooperatively with coworkers is important at Goodyear. And, dealing appropriately with customers brings repeat business. Therefore, a criminal history that includes assault, stalking or criminal harassment will concern the hiring manager. This is because it tells them you may have difficulty getting along with others.
Does Goodyear drug test?
Yes, according to online comments, the company drug tests as part of the hiring process.
