It's foolish to lie on a job application.
When an application asks about a misdemeanor or felony conviction, many people check “no,” assuming it was so long ago that no one will find out about it. While they might be right, it's unlikely. Companies today run background checks on people. Better to admit your faults upfront. If you checked “no” and then they ran the background check, I can guarantee you won’t get the job.
