I asked about a background check and need another answer...please

How far back do they go? and would it show something I did as a teen? I was told they are still waiting because of another state I lived in, im assumming they had to get all states. It`s just that when I was a teen I did somthing and it was in the other state. That was like 24 years ago. Think it will be seen? and will they hold it againest me? It`s just a housekeeping job. Thanks!!

  • Anything under the age of 18, unless you were tried as an adult, SHOULD be sealed. They go all the way back to when you became an adult.

  • It depends on where the housekeeping job is. If it is in a hospital or anything like that, it requires a security clearance, but even then if what you were convicted for was not violent, abusive, or neglectful, generally it will not affect your employment.

  • Tell that to the Navy that was able to see a conviction I had when I was 15....
