i am trying to get a job at a local grocery store as a pharmacy clerk.
part of the pre-employment process is a drug screen (which i know i will pass), and a background check.
my question is what all will show up on the background check?
i believe (almost positive), when i filled out the application, it said they would be checking for convictions (not traffic tickets or anything like that). i have been arrested before, but have never been convicted for anything (i'm currently on pre-trial diversion, in which the charges will be dismissed after i complete probation).
so if it says they are checking for convictions, do you think my arrest would prevent me from getting the job?
