Yes, Sam’s Club does conduct background checks on prospective employees. These typically take two to three business days.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
There are some states that only go back seven years into your history. That’s a good thing. If your charges are from six years ago, you may want to wait a little longer before applying to some places. These states include:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
*sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.
There are a handful of states that choose only to show the charges in which you were found guilty. They leave off everything else. Those states are:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
We know that most states still choose to show everything on their background checks, and they go back indefinitely. Everything will show up, guilty verdicts as well as all other charges — even those that were dropped or where you were found not guilty. Those states include:
- Indiana (intensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
