Maybe, but then again maybe she has just not been caught again.
Part of me does feel bad that she got fired over something that happened so long ago, but another part of me is saying that is the way it should be. Too often in today society we are not held accountable for our actions, everything is societies fault. Kid get caught cheating, instead of punishing his son, dad sues school district… It is time that we learned that the choices we make have consequences and when we make those choices we should be the one that is held responsible for the consequences.
So as a young adult she stole, she hasn’t been caught stealing since then, but I have no way of knowing if she learned her lesson or not. So if I’m a bank, I’m not comfortable without really knowing her. Also that is something that should have been found out on the application. At least on a standard application “have you ever been convicted of a crime” is a standard question and if you answer no, but the background check pulls up a yes, then that is grounds for dismissal.
Now from the business side, most banks require employees to have an dishonesty bond, this would most likely preclude her from the ability of getting bonded.
