Does Portland Bottling Co do background checks?
This area is a little tricky. When applying for their driving positions, a background check is done. We didn’t see it mentioned for any of their other positions, though.
Here is something to keep in mind regarding background checks:
If an offense is less than seven years old these states will see it:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(*certain pay or salary bracket positions require a screening.)
These states will only see guilty convictions:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
The states that will still look at everything are as follows:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia

PBC seems to be a great place to work with a family-like atmosphere. The main complaints we saw are due to the long hours often required, and lack of work-life balance.
