If my juvenile background is sealed, will my history affect recruitment?

Applicants seeking employment are evaluated on an individual basis. The totality of the background investigation is taken into consideration for disqualification or non-select purposes. It is important to underscore that a sealing or expungement usually does not relieve the applicant from providing information about the underlying conduct that led to such a sealed or expunged record. One possible exception might be an arrest/conviction expunged by a court pursuant to PC §851.8, in which case the court made a factual finding of innocence, as there is no underlying conduct to disclose.
