Not every state handles background checks the same way. In some states, their background check only goes back seven years. Here’s a list of those states:

Along those same lines, there are states where your background check won’t show cases where you were found not guilty. These states are:
- New York
Ultimately, there are still many states where your background check will bring up your entire record. That includes cases where you were found not guilty. The states in this category are:
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina

What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Does T-Mobile hire felons? It’s possible they do, but some felonies may make it more difficult to get a job here. Here are some examples:
- Misuse of technology, since that’s their main service.
- Child abuse, as they work with a lot of families.

Does T-Mobile hire sex offenders
We don’t know. The company didn’t tell us and there’s no information online.
Does T-Mobile drug test?
It doesn’t look like T-Mobile does a pre-employment drug screening. However, some other material we looked at mentioned the possibility of random drug screenings. So, it’s safe to assume they’ll test anyone who appears to be under the influence of drugs.
