    Question About Background Check

    I applied to work at WDW in merchandising, and I messed up pretty bad. I have 2 violations (trespassing and theft, after toilet papering a gym for a prank 7 years ago when I was 20), and when asked if I had any record, criminal history etc, I hastily took advice from a room mate and said no. I'm wondering now if it's too late to rectify the situation.

    I feel like I have 3 options-
    1. Do nothing. and hope it works out. (I don't like this idea)
    2. Call Casting. I could tell them I didn't understand and see if they can make a note in my file, or allow me to fill out the secondary form to explain yourself.
    3. Tell my recruiter during my interview in 2 weeks. I could tell him what I did and try to explain why I didn't mark the box.

    I feel like my best bet is to just call Casting. Do I have any chance of still getting this? I know I was wrong. Then and now. I'd appreciate any advice.

    What did you end up doing and what was Disney's response?

    Re: Question About Background Check

    You must to option 2 or 3. If you do nothing and a standard background check reveals you lied on application; you are gone. That is typical with most jobs. I've had cast pulled mid-shift on me for stuff like this. It's better to not get the job, rather be fired a few weeks in and try and explain that to next position you apply for.

    Failure to disclose is an automatic rejection of an application. Explain the circumstances and you are much better off, especially considering what the infractions were.
