DUIs are generally misdemeanors. They could be elevated to the much more serious level of felonies if bodily injury resulted (e.g. ran into somone while DUI). However, asssuming that there was no bodily injury, then they are most likely misdemeanors. If you still have the paperwork from the DUIs, that should tell you what exactly they were treated as. However, as noted above, it is generally safe to assume that if you were charged with a DUI, it was a misdemeanor. Therefore, if a job application requires disclosure of misdemeanors, it would seem to be the case that driving while intoxicate or driving under the influence would need to be dislosed.
