While we can’t say for sure, our sources say Mastercard may perform a background check during the hiring process. Keep in mind, though, that most companies will perform some sort of background check, even if it’s to verify that you’re legally able to work there.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Not all states conduct the same background checks. For instance, the states on this list don’t look at anything older than seven years:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
And the eight on this list won’t consider any not guilty verdicts:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
However, some states will still see your entire record, including those not guilty cases. These are those states:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
We did some online digging in an effort to bring you Mastercard’s ratings. On glassdoor.com, they have 4 out of 5 stars. 80% say they’d recommend this job to a friend and an impressive 94% approve of the CEO. The biggest complaints are about the slow processes of advancement and some changes with upper management.
What felonies Mastercard will not hire
There are undoubtedly going to be financial-related crimes that will not be tolerated by Mastercard if found on a background check, but they haven’t told us exactly which ones.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Does Mastercard hire felons? We can’t say for sure, but certain felonies are going to hurt your chances. For example, because you’ll be working with sensitive credit and identity information, any white collar crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, tax evasion and money laundering will make it tough to get hired at Mastercard.
Does Mastercard hire sex offenders?
Mastercard has not made it public if they hire people with sex offenders and there are no firsthand responses we’ve found about this.
Does Mastercard drug test?
While we don’t have a yes or no answer to this question, at least one source says they do. Regardless, it’s best to prepare for one, just in case.
