Nothing on the WWT website or careers page indicates whether or not they do background checks, but a story back in 2013 indicates they started doing background checks in 2011 on new employees who oversee buying and selling equipment. It also said they were considering background checks for all new hires. Therefore, expect a background check when you apply.
Here is some important information you should know about background checks:
There are specific states that only look at information less than seven years old. These states are:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.
In other states, only cases where you were found guilty are allowed to show up on a background check. Check them out here:
- New York
However, a lot of states still want to see your full record. If you live in one of these states, your entire record is on display:
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
