What felonies TruGreen will not hire
The company didn’t share what convictions would stop your application in its tracks. Read the next section for what we think will cause you some trouble.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Does TruGreen hire felons? While they don’t generally hire felons, there are a couple of felonies that could make the process even harder. For example:
- Any violent criminal history will make it hard to get a job with TruGreen because you’ll be frequently dealing with the general public.
- Driving-related felonies will also make it difficult since you may be required to drive a company vehicle.
- Theft crimes could also be problematic because there may be times when you’ll be asked to handle cash or credit card information.
Since we know TruGreen will hire those with misdemeanors on a case-by-case basis, if your conviction is something smaller, be honest with them. It’ll help your chances of getting hired.
Does TruGreen hire sex offenders?
TruGreen has not made it known if they do or do not hire sex offenders, so we’re not completely certain.
Does TruGreen drug test?
We don’t have firsthand knowledge on this. However, sources say TruGreen requires a drug test after a job offer has been accepted. They will also drug test if there is an accident in a company vehicle or during business hours.
