Yes, Redner’s Market told us that:
“If a candidate lists some type of criminal offense, we will do background checks to confirm all of these charges and will put that into consideration so it won’t conflict with our company ideals.”
Depending on where you live, you could face varying levels of background checks as well.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
There are some states that choose to show only seven years of your criminal history. That is a great thing, especially if you have been out for a while. These states include:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
*sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.
Other states have decided to only show charges in which you were found guilty of. They leave off the rest, including your not guilty verdicts and charges that were thrown out. Those states are:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Unfortunately, there are still many states that show everything on a background check. This includes any charges you have faced, whether they were dismissed or not. These states include:
- Indiana (intensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina

“…we do have some expectations and criteria as we are a public company and want to make sure we have a safe environment for our employees and guests.
