I been waiting on my background check to come back for two weeks and i know it aint nothing on record,but a class c mid.for hot checks and they keep telling me that it havent came back yet.
I also passed the drug test and they keep telling me the drug test has not come back. I spoke to a different manager who told me that the bground check only take 2 days max. I had 2 overdraft checks but think that may be the problem. I do know they send you a letter but have not received it yet.

That tell everybody that the test has not come back yet so the letter gets to you and you stop calling them. Other manager told me it only takes 36 hours the most. Very disappointed as we all know how hard jobs are to come by.

Sorry I mispelled and wrote drug test instead of background check. I do not have a felony and they keep telling me my background check has not come back. I called back and spoke to a different manager and asked for basic info without telling who I was and I was told it takes between 24 and 36 hours for the background check. The person who offered me the job expected me to be able to start today!! I wish I knew how strict their policy was because I would not have put myself through this. I was so happy and thought I had a job. I wasted so much time worrying about my rx's and they were no problem at all. I would suggest to keep looking. I do believe that God can bless us and you never know. We can never give up trying!!!

Unfortunately, it seems like it depends on how much money you have to pay lawyers to get that slap on the wrist. I do not even have a felony and it is hard so I feel for you. I would suggest looking into getting it expunged. I wish you the very best luck.

I was not hired at a local Wal-Mart Supercenter because of a previous possession of marijuana charge. They said the DUI shouldn't be a problem, but the possession charge was. The thing is, I murdered at my interview. I'm great with interviews and this one was one of my best. They, you know, ask all those bullshit questions and tell you to give an example of a certain situation. I came up with my answers right on the spot, and completely impressed the woman interviewing me. And the job I was interviewing for was a goddamn cart-pusher. The possession charge against me happened over 2 years ago when I was 19. Wal-Mart's hiring policies are barbaric. Fuckers. Fuck Wal-Mart.

I was interviewed 2 weeks ago by walmart and offered a job pending a background check. On the app it asked if I had any felony convictions or charges pending. I have a deferred felony posesion of cds. Which is not a conviction and charges are not pending.I have called hr many times but no response. Will this disqualify me for a part time minimum wage job? and will they even give me a chance to explain.

I applied to wal-mart and disclosed I had a car jacking felony that Ive serviced time and has been home for three years now. Ive gone back to school and received my CDL license. Through the interview process I would need to past the drug test which I pasted. I waited for several weeks with no call back. I called and would get the run around. Finally i received a letter stating they recinded and cancelled the job offer due to my background check. Which I disclosed and my application and the interview. (That stinks.)

What an idiot. The law also says that methamphedimine has some medical value to it. Do you agree with that dumba**?

this has nothing to do with wal-mart but im 31 and in my younger years had a few misdo. charges, decided to join the army to better myself and get away from the life i was living. well i spent 3.5 years in service got out on a hon. discharge. well i applied at a security co. and worked there for 3 weeks when my background check came back they fired me from charges that were 8 years ago and over, all minor misdo's. i felt like shit, i can fight for my country but couldn't work for them, how sad. i guess the point is no matter how good a person you are your a totally different person on paper and thats what matters in the workforce. apperance, first impressions,and how you present yourself goes along way, and hiring a lawyer to get charges expunged does also. good luck.

Good for you! Drugs are illegal and people need to understand that.

if you have a DUI you are never going to get in and any charges for that matter even harrasment,or false information to a police officer,any drug charges even if you did pass your test walmart is very strict indeed as well if five years passes after your charge you are able to reapply
That is simply untrue. I was offered an assistant manager position with Walmart last week and I have 2 DUIs on my criminal record, as well as another minor misdemeanor for criminal mischief. All of my offenses were over ten years old and I am sure that was taken into consideration, as well as the fact that I was honest and disclosed all of the above information on the consent for my background check. Furthermore, I have been through the background check process (including one very extensive FBI fingerprint check) with several other employers and have never had an issue passing one. The bottom line is most employers are going to consider the length of time that has passed since you received the charge and they are also going to look at the type of charge it is. If you have any drug and/or theft related charges, then most of the time you will not be considered. Other than that, minor misdemeanors from years ago are not going to hinder you from being hired at most companies. Good luck.

FYI: Background checks can (and most of the time will) take longer than two days. My background check with Walmart for an assistant manager position took a solid week to come back.
