If your background check includes a check of your Record of Arrest and Prosecution (RAP SHEET), then yes the DUI will show up even after 10 years. Generally, on the DMV Driver Record, convictions for traffic violations and DUI's do usually drop off. DUI's usually drop off after 10 years. So it depends on the extent of your background check and the employer.
