All of our online research turned up the same answer: Yes, NFI requires a background check.
Here are some things to keep in mind regarding background checks:
There are states that will see an offense only if it’s less than seven years old. Those states are as follows:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(*certain pay or salary bracket positions require a screening.)
There are now eight states that will see only guilty convictions. Here are those states:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
While changes are being made, 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

What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
There are a few offenses that will make a trucking company hesitant to hire you. Here are some examples:
- A driving offense of any type if you’re applying for a trucking position. Previous offenses can cause them to hesitate since you would be driving for them on company time.
- People with violent convictions will more than likely have a hard time getting their foot in the door. The majority of positions here interact with the public or are in close contact with other workers.
- Identity theft cases may receive a closer look for office positions. You’ll have access to payroll and employee files.
