I just got a call from my HR rep regarding my background and unfortunately I have a misdemeanor that I was unaware of. She say it's from five years ago for driving on suspended license but I have a valid license now. I asked if it will affect my chances of being hired and she said she can't say yes or no because it's up to AT&T. I has anyone been in a similar situation and still got the job?

Hey Milly, I wouldn't stress too much I went through the same exact thing about 2 weeks ago and my misdemeanor was only 2 yrs ago. I didnt disclose it cause i was never convicted, but like I said dont over stress, you'll be fine!

So my recruiter called and informed me that I had the misdemeanor and that I also had a court date coming up this month on the 22nd that i totally forgot about. I admitted to her that I was unaware of the misdemeanor because it was from so long ago and I also had no clue that a traffic ticket could turn into a misdemeanor and I also told her that my license is not valid because I recently renewed it. After explaining everything to her I asked if it would affect my chances of getting the job and she said she can't say yes or no and that she would tell att the info I told her and call me back. Of course my heart was racing at this point. After about thirty minutes she called back and asked if I could go to court sooner and get it resolved so that I could make it to the June 2nd training I told her I would try. Yesterday I went to court and asked to advance the case, saw the judge and got it taken off. I called to let her know but she didn't answer so I left a message I'm just waiting to hear back. I'll let u know what happens.
