I am going to say that you have to list anything that would be on your record.  I'm sure you could always just explain on the apps that they were misdemeanor charges for whatever they were for. IDK, maybe ask the places you are applying to because they will gain the info if they would run a criminal background check.

 I agree with PP -- you need to be honest.  I don't think the misdemeanors will weigh as heavily as would a felony.  I worked for a temp agency once (as in for the agency itself) and the ones we had to watch out for were felonies, 'cause those were game over -- only 1 or 2 places would even consider people with felonies and it was not good work.

 Definitely list any and all, you don't want to lose out on a job just because you didn't list it
