Does Precision Castparts do background checks?
Yes, although they don’t make it clear when they actually do the check. They said:
“We conduct background checks on the past seven years, and consider the recency of the conviction and the potential nexus to the job (i.e., DUI applying for Driver). We also expect disclosure after offer and prior to completion of the Background check report.”
PCC ask sabout criminal history. That is why we recommend telling them during the interview. Get it out of the way! We know they have hired felons, so you have a great chance of getting the job anyway. This way you appear upfront and honest, and that can say enough about your character to get you the job.
Something to keep in mind regarding background checks:
There are many states that now only look at an offense if it is less than seven years old.
The following are those states:
- New Hampshire
- New York
The eight states below do not look at anything that you were not convicted of:
- New York
Unfortunately, there are some states that still look at everything. The following are those states:
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
We looked at PCC’s rating on Glassdoor and Indeed. On each site, they were given 3.1 out of 5 stars. After reading several reviews on each site, high ratings were given for the benefits offered by PCC. The most common complaint was the long hours and frequent layoffs.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Some felonies they may take an extra look at might be violent crime, substance abuse or even theft. The materials made and the tools used are expensive and can be dangerous, so you will be looked at a little harder if your record relates to the job you are applying to or suggests you can’t be trusted.
Does Precision Castings drug test?
During our research there was nothing found that indicated if a drug test would be done. Considering the materials produced and the tools used, we think a drug screen is likely. As always, we suggest preparing for one . . . just in case.
