  • are you talking about dui/dwi/wreckless driving? it depends on whether its your first, second, etc. and whether your state see's it as a misdemeanor or felony offense. different states vary on the judgements, and the period of record. so, if this is the case, and the application/employer's asks if you've been convicted of a felony/misdemeanor, and you say 'no', then they find out you have at the time you declined its existence, it might be a reason for them to no longer employ you.

  • LOLOLOL....wet and wreckless....what the heck?
    I have no experience with these things. I would ask a lawyer or somene with a legal background.. But don't lie about the "wet and wreckless" on job applications.

  • Wet and reckless...I'm guessing dwi? Yes, that's a crime. Please don't term it wet and reckless on the job app.

  • It may not be considered a crime, but in today's job market with so many people looking, I would think it would definitely be taken into consideration.

  • Most companies these days run background checks. It is an extremely easy and inexpensive process so it is to their benefit. Even companies that don't pay for a background check will run searches on the internet and check Facebook, etc.
