It’s unclear if iHeartMedia will perform a background check. Go ahead and make them aware of your background so there aren’t any surprises.
Here are some things to keep in mind regarding background checks:
The great news is we now have states that will see an offense only if it’s less than seven years old. They are as follows:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(*certain pay or salary bracket positions require a screening.)
Do you have things on your record that you weren’t convicted of? Well, luckily there are states that will see only guilty convictions. Here are those states:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
While things are changing, we are sad to say the majority of the states will still look at everything. Such as:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
Reviewing glassdoor.com we saw that iHeartMedia was rated with 3.1 out of 5 stars.
Working here provides a great work environment with great people. However, there is little room for growth and the pay is often not that great.
What felonies iHeartMedia will not hire
There are no doubt going to be straight-out “no” responses to certain records, but they didn’t tell us what they are. It might be more context than category.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Here are a few convictions we think may have a difficult time being hired:
Some positions will require a perfect driving record. That being said, any infraction involving a driving offense will limit your chances.
Since iHeartMedia will deal with media accounts, someone with a conviction involving a cybercrime or embezzlement may find it more difficult getting their foot in the door.
Does iHeartMedia hire sex offenders?
We have no idea! They didn’t tell us and there are no online reports about it.
Does iHeartMedia drug test?
Our online source didn’t provide us with enough information to be able to say one way or the other. As always, we recommend you’re prepared for one . . . just in case.
