Q&A: What does it mean to “successfully pass a background check”?

Question by Louie: What does it mean to “successfully pass a background check”?
A lot of employers require the candidate “to successsfully pass a criminal background check”, however, they are never specific as to what this constitutes. Of course, if you just did 10 years for rape or 20 years for murder, you’re not going to pass. Also, any prior felony conviction will usually be adequate to disqualify you.

But what about misdemeanors or ordinance offenses? Or felony arrests that did not result in conviction? Is it just really company policy when it comes to these less serious matters?
Yes, glock I understand those are the things that show up, but what needs to be on there to “fail”? It probably depends on the company and the position???
