There are certainly going to be convictions that the Peery Foundation will frown upon and refuse to hire you over, but we don’t know what they are. The company didn’t make this clear to us.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
The types of offenses that will cause you the most difficulty being hired are those involving violence or aggression. For instance, have you been convicted of assault and battery? What about harassment or stalking?
A criminal history of this kind will make the hiring manager wonder if you can be trusted to work well with other staff. Also, the Peery Foundation has a reputation to uphold in the community for building trusting relationships. This means that they want people who are able to really get along with others and deal with any conflict in a respectful and productive way.

Honestly, we’re not sure.
