Yes, they do. What’s more, the company’s job application says that by signing it you:
“. . .[u]nderstand and agree that any false statement or omissions on this application or elsewhere or receipt of unsatisfactory references will result in the immediate withdrawal of any offer of employment.”
If you’re wondering how else does Sunoco do background checks, we can tell you this: The job application confirms that you must show documentation to verify eligibility to work in the United States as well.
It’s important to be aware of how background checks are done in different states. Here’s what we know:
You only need to worry about the last seven years of your record in these states because that’s all they check:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.)
A small number of states don’t want to know about any not guilty verdicts. Here are the states that leave these out of a background check:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
But remember, most states want to see your whole record. Here they are:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia

What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
If you want to get a job at Sunoco with a felony, it’s best if you don’t have theft or fraud convictions. You’ll be handling cash, credit cards and merchandise that can be easily stolen, so the company needs you to be low risk.
Someone with assault or substance abuse convictions may also have a more difficult time getting hired. This is because working in customer service and closely with co-workers in a fast-paced job can be stressful. The company needs to know that you can keep your cool under these conditions.
Finally, if you want to get hired as a Truck Driver, be prepared to show that your record won’t get in the way of you doing the job or Sunoco’s ability to insure you.
Does Sunoco drug test?
Yes, they do. Here’s what their job application says:
“. . . after an offer of employment, the Company reserves the right to require substance abuse testing of all job applicants for the presence of controlled substances (drugs).”
