I am applying to a job that gives me a company car. Will they find my DUI after 7 years in california ?
When I was 18 years old I blew a .01 the morning after a night of drinking, in santa barbara county. Now i live in contra costa county. Both in California. the only punishment i got was drivers liscence suspension for 1 year. Thats it. no fines. No court. Just that. It has been 7 years and I am applying for a pharmaceutical job that gives me a company car and pays all my insurance and everything. I have called 4 insurance companies to get quotes and to run my record and there is no trace of the DUI. They only check the last 5 years.My question: When I goto apply for these jobs and they do a background driving check are they going to find my dui after it has been over 7 years? I stated no on the applications, but dont want to waste my time interviewing if it comes up>HELP i need an accurate answer!
