In Case of Emergency Notify

A conviction standing alone does not automatically disqualify applicants from employment with Thiele. Thiele will evaluate the specific facts and offense in each case, giving consideration only to those convictions that we believe are related and relevant to the particular position for which you are applying. Thiele’s consideration will include a review of the date of the conviction, the nature of the offense, and evidence of rehabilitation since the conviction. In addition, you are not required to disclose the existence of any arrest, criminal charge or conviction that has been dismissed or expunged from your record under the Georgia First Offender Law, O.C.G.A. § 42-8-60, et seq.
