I interned my junior year atin a role. I managed to land an interview in a program last August. During this school year I made a dumb decision and got behind the wheel after having a few drinks; long story short I was involved in a minor accident as a result of refusing a breath test I was arrested and charged with 1st offence misdemeanor DWI. I'm still going to court dates, with my lawyer trying to plead it down to a traffic infraction (DWAI). He says if a background check is ran it will come up charges pending. My start date is in about 2/3 months so my background check will be around then.
I received my sign on bonus and I am afraid to buy things I need for work like clothing. My question to you all is if this is going get my offer rescinded? I have read many topics with posters saying banks are more concerned with integrity/finance related misdemeanors. Even on the app it says:
"For U.S. positions only: (Applicants to positions outside of the U.S. please respond N/A) Have you ever been convicted of, or plead guilty to, an offense other than a minor traffic violation? Include offenses for which you pled no contest or received probation; you may exclude convictions which have been ordered fully expunged (i.e. removed from your criminal record by a specific court order) or sealed by a court of law. (Offenses involving the possession or use of false identification for underage drinking and similar offenses should be disclosed. Offenses for driving under the influence, and driving while impaired DO NOT need to be disclosed unless the position for which you are applying requires driving as a routine job duty.) If yes, please explain. If no, please respond N/A."
So is this grounds for my offer to get rescinded if charges are pending/ if I'm convicted? Should I call up HR after I know the clear direction of the case to disclose? Or should I just disclose on the background check?
