UBS background check: misdemeanor
So I applied for a marketing position with UBS and I’m afraid of not being hired because of a misdemeanor case I have. I was not convicted of a crime, but the record has not been expunged yet, although it is qualified to. It was for disorderly intoxication last year on Halloween. I was at a bar with friends, a fight broke out, and all those right next to those people in the fight were arrested. Wrong place, wrong time for me unfortunately, and now that’s ruining my life. What are the chances of UBS disregarding me completely, even if I were to explain the story? It’s sad to see a good opportunity go because two drunken men couldn’t handle each other and therefore ruined the lives of innocent bystanders.
