Online reports indicate that Kellog’s will do a background check sometime during the hiring process.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Not all background checks are the same. They vary depending on what state you live in. Some states, like those in this list, only go back seven years:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.)
While some states don’t consider any not guilty verdicts:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
However, if you live in these states, they’ll see your whole record, including those not guilty cases:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
