Hello everyone,

Last Wednesday, the 6th, I was offered a bakery clerk position at a grocery store pending my background check. Well I see online that it was finalized Friday afternoon, the 8th. The main thing I'm worried about it is that I got a speeding ticket a few months ago, and the cop put it down as wreckless driving and that shows up on the background check. From what I could see, that was the only thing on their end that showed up as iffy. Even though this isn't a driving job, I'm not sure if it could still be seen as a reason to not finish the hiring process with me? Or if I just need to wait a few more days? I haven't heard anything from the manager since she offered me the job over the phone five days ago. Just would like some informative input. Thanks all.

Have patience. Wait few more days, then get back in touch with manager (no e-mails, call personally).

I'm leery of places where the applicant has to put forth an effort just to find a simple update to an application, but who knows these days.

Alright, thank you, I'll wait a few more days to see but you're right you'd think they would be a bit more professional.

It was completed Friday afternoon. Today is Monday. You'll likely hear from them today.

Also, you didn't get a "speeding ticket"... you were cited for reckless driving. There is a difference.

Well I probably won't get it because they used the 3rd party sterling talent solutions for the background check and most people who have reviewed them said you can't count on this company to help you get the job, that you're more likely to lose the job offer. https://www.trustpilot.com/review/st...tsolutions.com

Yes, the difference is that 10 over is speeding. 20 over is reckless driving. They are both speeding. Neither has anything to do with working in a grocery store bakery.

They don't comment on the hiring process. They discover the facts. Many people applying for the bakery position have drug problems, or worse. That is in a different league than speeding.


Be patient. The admin process takes time. Worse case you go on to the next opportunity. Clerical jobs are a dime a dozen these days. The bakery also knows that.

Reckless is a felony. It could still be a charge and not a conviction and in that case it would not show up on the background check.

Not a reckless op based solely on speed.

If speeding tickets kept people from working in grocery stores, grocery stores would have a lot less employees. There are a hundred reasons why the employer did not drop what they were doing and pick up the phone to call you right away.

What was the disposition of the ticket?

Pleading guilty to a lesser charge (i.e. plea deal) did you try that?
