I have five DUIs. will that kill my offer chances during the background check?

i'll be recruiting next fall fo MBA IB recruiting and i'm pretty nervous about getting my intern offer yanked because of my DUIs. I think they're total BS and the cops were trying to screw me over but whatever the law sees it a different way. what happened to me each time was:

DUI 1: i was 18 and got a new car and wanted to impress girls with my new car and drank alot but told them it's ok I can drop them off and i did but on the way back to my house I passed out at a stoplight and the car rolled into the intersection and a woman said she had to swerve to avoid hitting me (liar) and she called the police and I got a DUI

DUI 2: i read on the internet that you can have a crazy trip by taking a ton of sleeping pills so I took about 10 ZZZquil i got from the pharmacy but I was also drinking vodka and I guess they interact badly because I blacked out and owke up in jail and the cops said I had passed out and rolled into an intersection. They had no proof of this, so this was an injustice

DUI 3: this is the only legit one ok not going to lie I was extremely drunk and my buddy jimmy who owns a hellcat dodge said he wanted to race my mustant and I said you're on so we got pulled over and I was going 85 in a 35 limit suburb area and a family called the cops. Luckily though this was in a different state so they didn't know about my other DUIs so i didn't lose my license

DUI 4: I had a few jack and cokes when I woke up on a friday and then went to go get a mcdonalds super breakfast but on the way I drove through a school zone and I thougth it was BS because there weren't any kids but the light was blinking and i got pulled over and the cop smelled the alcohol so I got in trouble

Do you guys think this is bad enough to have my offer yanked?

Holy shit dude. Are you for real? How do people like you with 0 EQ have a job that pays over the salary of an accountant? Did your wife's boyfriend allow you to post this?

If you hired the same lawyer for the first 4 you should argue to have the 5th one comped

I mean if I knew about these I would throw your resume in the trash. Drinking and driving is straight up selfishness at the harm of others and you seem like the type of guy who'd walk over everyone in the office to get ahead, ruin people's holidays just for fun, and take from the poor what little they have to squeeze value out of a business.

As I write this though I realize a lot of people will see you as the perfect candidate in the corporate world.

Obvious troll of legitimate posts on the subject. Love how Gen Z acts self righteous about DUIs.....now that anyone can get an Uber or Lyft.

It was harder before yes, but you could call a night taxi (which existed for picking up people from bars/clubs) or if you lived in area where that wasn't possible have a designated driver who accompanied you and didn't drink or have a friend come pick you up when you wanted to go home.

Things were harder back in the day, but that never gave someone the green light to operate heavy machinery in the middle of the night physically impaired that leads to accidents and even death.

Totally agree. And back then, people recognized that drinking and driving was a dangerous and bad thing to do.

However, talk with someone from Gen Z today and they think drinking and driving even after two beers is the equivalent of being a Neo-Nazi....convenient opinion to have now that anyone can call an Uber or Lyft. So righteous.

Here is how I would pitch it …

Look - I'll live close to the office cause surely I can't be driving in Hoboken or anywhere that's not like Midtown. So I'll always be first one in … for like forever. And given I would rather take Uber (on your dime) than drive, I'll always be in office until the policy kicks in at 9pm. Now would you rather have me or the guy who is wants to work 4 days, stay faraway from office and go home by 5pm? Can't get DUI if I don't drive anymore amiright?

Know of at least one person working FT with a DUI at a shop ppl on here look up to; don't think it's a huge deal as long as people like you, so naturally a bit of a chicken and egg situation

I'm kind of sick and tired of these posts where you can't tell if the person is sarcastic or not - if it's funny sure be sarcastic, but it's annoying when you type something out thoughtful and it turns out to be something like this which is probably a joke lol

Unless you are going to Tobin & Co., I think you are in trouble.

With a record like that I would suggest you change careers. Have you heard of distressed bankruptcy trading?? That's the perfect place for you. I interned at one of those way back in the day. It was like a 10 man shop there was more DUIs than people on the floor. I'm only half joking with the People-to-DUI ratio. lol
