Even though Taylor doesn’t ask about your criminal history on their application, it’s assumed they’ll still run a background check. Online reports support this as well, so be prepared.
Here is something to keep in mind regarding background checks:
Did you know that there are states that only look at offenses less than seven years old? They are as follows:
- New Hampshire
- New York
The following states will see only guilty convictions:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Regretfully, we still have states that will look at everything. These include:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
Taylor was rated with 3.3 out of 5 stars on glassdoor.com. The negative ratings came from a lack of benefits and low pay. However, Taylor received some praise for the people who’ve worked there since it became a privately-owned company.
What felonies Taylor will not hire
There are no felonies that the company told us would keep you from being hired if they were found on your record, but read below to see what we think would give them pause.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
We didn’t find anything regarding specific convictions that may disqualify you here. However, we’ve thought of a couple that might cause you trouble:
- Theft crimes may be looked at with strict guidelines. There would be some expensive equipment that most positions would have access to.
- Violent offenses generally always have a harder time with a lot of positions. Some of the positions Taylor offers deals with the public directly so this may make it difficult getting your foot in the door.
It’s very possible that someone with these convictions can be hired — it just means they may have to try a little harder. Don’t forget, though, that your felony needs to be 10 years old at least or it will stop you!
Does Taylor hire sex offenders?
We’re not sure about this, but it’s a possibility since they didn’t say they don’t and we don’t see anything online about it.
Does Taylor drug test?
We are unsure if Taylor will perform a drug screen or not. Our best advice would be to be prepared anyway.
