I have an offer contingent on a background check. At no point has anyone asked me about any criminal history. 2 years ago I was charged with possession of alcohol -a violation - and possession - a misdemeanor. Formally the misdemeanor possession was reduced to a violation and this is what I was convicted of.
Will the fact that I was criminally charged but wasn't criminally convicted make any difference at all when they run a background check? I can't find any information about what constitutes passing the check. What I do find focuses on misdemeanors and felonies.
Company is in IT sector, work is non government, non security clearance. I live in the US.
