Yes, Johnson & Johnson does background checks as part of their hiring process.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
The good news is that some states don’t go back more than seven years when they run a background check. If your convictions are older than that, you’re in good shape in these states:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
*sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.
Some states only show the charges you were found guilty of and leave off the ones you were not guilty of. Here are those states:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Then there are the states that still show everything on their background checks. That includes the ones you were convicted of as well as the charges you were found not guilty of. Here is a list of those states:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
