Now that we have looked at how to get hired at Travelers, it’s time to examine another important question. Does Travelers do background checks?
They do. They use a third party agency to do their screenings. From what we have seen, the process can be lengthy — taking over one month in some cases.
Bad news? Maybe, maybe not. Here are a few things that you should know about background checks.
For one thing, there are some states that only check back seven years. This means they won’t know about anything that happened before. Here are those states:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
Better yet, there are also some states that won’t look at not guilty convictions. These are:
- New York
Unfortunately, it isn’t all good news. There are also some states that view your entire record, including not guilty verdicts. Here are those states:
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia

What felonies Travelers will not hire
There are a few charges that will stop you from getting the job here, but Travelers didn’t name them. We do have a few suggestions below of what might work against you.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Most of the jobs at Travelers are customer service-heavy. That being the case, they are probably going to shy away from violent or sexual offenses. That’s common for companies that deal with customer service.
Another obvious thing to remember is that this is an insurance agency. That being the case, insurance fraud won’t be looked upon kindly.
Fraud, or a business-related crime in general, will also make it hard for you to get hired.
Does Travelers hire sex offenders?
The company didn’t tell us if they hire sex offenders or not, and there is no information available online about this.
Does Travelers drug test?
Yes. A drug test is part of their background check. They do them after the interview if they would like to hire you. The hire is completed once you pass the drug test and satisfy their screening, so make sure that you are in a position to pass their requirements.
