What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Jobs at Pepperidge Farm depend heavily on teamwork. Therefore, if you have past convictions that suggest you have difficulty getting along with others, this could be a problem. Be ready to convince the hiring manager that any convictions for assault, criminal harassment and the like have taught you a lesson about respecting others.
Offenses involving alcohol or drug abuse might also be a concern for the company. Basically, they want to hear that you’ve dealt with any substance abuse issues through counselling, AA or other proven methods. You need them to feel confident that you’ll show up on time for work and be available to take on extra shifts when asked.
