 Policy For Hiring Those With Felony Convictions

We received the following response after contacting them regarding their hiring policies for those with felony convictions:

“Baxter does not have any ban on hiring persons with criminal convictions and in fact, we have removed the question of whether a person has a conviction from our application (“ban the box”). We look at each situation individually based on circumstances, including nature of conviction, when conviction occurred, nature of job being sought in light of nature of conviction, criminal history (one conviction or more), and other relevant factors.

A person with a criminal history should apply for any position for which he or she meets minimum qualifications and there are no special programs for felons versus non felons. If the person is the most qualified applicant and is extended an offer of employment, a standard background check will be run and an analysis conducted.

The Best Way To Secure A Position

Applying at your local Baxter location and convincing the management or local ownership to hire you is your best bet to secure a position.

Applying in person and explaining your conviction face-to-face generally is much better than simply filling out an application.

If you can get a referral from another employee at that location you will also be helping yourself out tremendously.
