Background checks are all-too-common, and often all-too-damning. Honeywell definitely does a background check and, from what we hear, it’s pretty much what stops you from getting a job here. Ouch. However, Honeywell seems to go back only 10 years max (there are conflicting reports on this) so keep that in mind.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
No matter what Honeywell’s policy is for length of time since conviction, these states below will only show the past seven years of your record:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
These states don’t show cases where you were found not guilty:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
These states are the toughest. They’ll show everything on your record, no matter how old or if the charges were dropped:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia

What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Honeywell is pretty strict when it comes to your criminal history, as you’ve seen. Ideally, you’ll be applying at a time when your felony is too old to count against you or you happen to live in one of those states that won’t show Honeywell your record because it’s too old there. In any event, this is what we think will most stand in your way:
- Times you’ve been shown to be untrustworthy such as theft or fraud.
- Choices you made in anger that lead to assault or destruction charges.
- Trespassing charges that indicate a lack of respect for boundaries and privacy.
- Having hits on your driving record. Several jobs say spots on your driving record will prevent you from getting hired here.
