    Please turn off the caps lock. It makes your post hard to read and is considered shouting on the Internet.

    All background checks are not created equal. What will show up on any given background check will depend entirely on how deep and thorough the check is.

    It depends not all background checks are equal. Another problem is having to show up for court a few times and missing work.

    We have no way of knowing if it will come up, and no way of knowing what position Fry's will take if it does.

    Fry's grocery store's background checks go back 7 years. This information was supplied on the employment application form where you signed permission for them to conduct the check. Here's the issue - if you were recently arrested, but not convicted, it would take a few months for the arrest to show up on a background check. The process of updating the computers takes that long.

    I can tell you that Fry's does periodic background checks on their employees, depending on the position held or in the case of promotions. So, if you go to work for them, the chance of them finding an arrest and/or conviction (if you are convicted) will likely show up.

    You indicated that you yet to have been convicted so you were honest when you said yes.
