Yes. Job offers are contingent on a personal background check and drug screen. If your background check and drug screen produce satisfactory results, your offer will be finalized.
State Farm will consider for employment all qualified applicants with criminal histories in a manner consistent with all applicable laws. All required background checks and drug screens will be conducted only after a conditional job offer has been extended. Any consideration of an applicant’s criminal history will be tailored to the requirements of the job and any applicable regulations. Without the prior written consent of the applicable regulatory authorities, federal law prohibits State Farm from employing persons with certain convictions for criminal offenses involving dishonesty, breach of trust, or money laundering, including offenses involving the illegal manufacturing, sale, distribution of or trafficking in controlled substances, or who entered into certain pretrial diversion or similar programs in connection with the prosecution of such offenses.
Some roles require successful completion of state licensing exams. State licensing exams are conducted by the applicable state regulatory agency and may require federal and/or state background checks that may include fingerprinting. These background checks are in addition to any you are required to take prior to being employed with State Farm.
There are times when state licensing background checks reveal information which may negatively affect your ability to acquire the necessary state licensing. Examples may include, but are not limited to: probation for certain offenses, including DUIs; fines due to the state in question; crimes deemed to be of such a serious nature that they are of prime importance in determining fitness for licensure, such as certain offenses for burglary, arson, robbery, stalking; misrepresentation on insurance or annuity products; etc. Questions regarding state licensing requirements and background checks should be directed to the applicable state regulatory agency.
Note: there is a required confirmation checkbox that must be checked to proceed with submitting an application or making revisions.
