I was charged with theft by unlawful taking in April 2003 and completed probation in July 2006 in NJ. I was in violation of my probation and received 30 days of jail (Day Reporting) in September 2004. On the job application it asks have you been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony in the last 7 yrs? How should I answer that question? Also what will appear on the background check?The reason I asked because I offered a contract position but have not filled out the application yet. Also this was a felony that happened in New Jersey.
