Quesada, who is now 58, was fired shortly after finding out she had a conviction for shoplifting from 40 years ago. A Wells Fargo spokesman told the Journal-Sentinel that the company began performing thorough background checks on all existing mortgage unit employees last year "due to legal requirements and changes in the regulatory environment.

So she was 18 when she was caught shoplifting? That's old enough to know better. I wouldn't want her handling my money.

What seems to be happening is that search engines are now getting smarter and smarter. It's starting to come up with stuff that simply didn't show ten/fifteen years ago.

Still, coming up with something which is a misdemeanor that far back is cheesy. Even then, she's 58, for god's sake.

This was probably expungable, but the problem with applying is that it then becomes CURRENT information and if your application is denied you've just screwed yourself!

Wells Fargo aren't exactly angels themselves. People in glass houses love to throw stones at others.If anybody has been following the sub-prime mortgage housing crash, Fargo was a prominent player in that game. Their reputation hasn't exactly recovered. Their involvement is a permanent mark on their record. It's not surprising if they treat their workers like trash. Their behavior in the foreclosure arena also leaves a lot to be desired. They're currently being sued for recovery money.

40years is long enough to make changes in your life and prove that you are honest. Your statement is absurd.

The hypocrisy of Wells Fargo is astounding. After receiving billions in bailout money and then attempting to spend it on things like a junket to Vegas (Wells Fargo cancels Las Vegas trip - Business - US business | NBC News) they're now trying so hard to show how scrupulous they are by firing people who made one stupid mistake decades ago. This isn't the first time WF has done this to an employee and I think it's ridiculous. The incident happened nearly half a century ago! Is there any evidence that this woman has committed any other crime since then?

Sounds like they just wanted an excuse to get rid of her so they don't have to pay retirement or her medical cost way too much for them. Horrible thing to do though.

Wells Fargo is dirty. I knew people who have worked for other companies for 20+ years and when Wells Fargo bought them out. They got fired and didn't even gave them a reason for the firing. Others got fired for the dumbest thing.
