    Default Which Job Industries Don't Do Background Checks

    I have a misdemeanor-petty theft in CA.

    I'm having a hard time finding a job and was wondering what job industries never conduct background checks?

    Some have said the office/admin industries never do background checks along with restaurants, but I just wanted to get your feedback as well.

    Thanks!

    There are no industries that, across the board, do not do background checks. Whether to do a background check and what to include in it is determined by the employer, not the industry.

    Rather than look for who does NOT do them, narrow down from who typically DOES do them: any position where you are expected to handle cash or credit cards, any position where you have any type of control over inventory, any position involving children, any position that requires or allows you access to other people's property (like repair services, meter readers), and any position with a city, county, state or other public agency. Oh, and a lot of non-profits.
