Yes. Actually, Norfolk Southern only checks the exact 7 year period (date of background check and the 7 previous years before). They can not see anything before that, as you will get the opportunity to see your background if you are denied employment. So, it is up to you to include any criminal or convictions before that time period, I wouldn't suggest doing so. Also, when going in for your background check make sure you are honest about all speeding tickets or accidents, also make sure all jobs are accurate (they will verify). Honest within the parameters of their search is what's important. I wouldn't suggest lying, but I don't suggest telling on yourself for something they will never see. Get the job! Everything I said is the truth.
