Yes, UGI makes it known there will be a background check. Here’s what we were told:
“A background check on new hires will be performed after the offer is extended.”
Something to keep in mind regarding background checks:
There are many states that now only look at an offense if it is less than seven years old. Here is a list of those states:
- New Hampshire
- New York
There are eight states that don’t consider court cases where you were found not guilty. Check these out:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
Unfortunately, there are some states that still look at everything. The following are those states:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
UGI has only 26 reviews on glassdoor.com, with a rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars.
UGI received many high ratings from being a good place to work with a wide variety of benefits. They even offer pet insurance! However, their downfall seems to be the high turnover rate.
