Default Who hires felons ?

Okay guys I work for the government and have worked for them since I was 17 when I was 18 I was convicted of an assault . Basically I got into a fight and while I was trying to leave ol dude got in front of my car and I put him into a coma and was charged with assault with a deadly weapon. I plea bargained and got 1 year in jail and 5 years probation with anger management . I completed everything and did not spend a year in jail only 13 days and was kicked out because of overcrowding (yeah I know i was lucky) . Anyways at this point I still work for the government and I'm looking for a second job so I could furnish my apartment quickly . I need a couch , table etc etc. and its a bitch a real bitch even though my felony was reduced to a misdemeanor its still a bitch. Lowes, Home Depot, Costco , Sears, Macys, basically any big place wont hire me for a part time position . They interview me but I always get asked about it. Its terrible and it sort of makes me wonder what if I lost my job =X how hard will it be to find another . I really want another job and I am scared shitless and will take care of my job to the best of my abilities so I wont go through anything. On another note I have a AA in Computer Science a AA in Sociology and a BS from UCLA will be added to my resume in June and that still doesn't matter. Dont you guys think that maybe employers should give a second chance to these (me) people ? Its sort of heart breaking on my part because I'm really trying and I'm getting ****. I would even settle to work at a gas station at night or some job that no one wants like picking up dog **** or road kill I give a ****. Sigh: im just ranting guys . Thanks for listening.

I got a job as a lot attendant with a felony. they checked my records too.

i dont think an assault charge will hinder your chance for getting hired as much as drug dealing, robbing and basically charges that make people think twice about trusting you

Pizza delivery driver!!! They dont do any checks of any kind at my place and everybody gets along fine. If you truly dont act like a felon, then nobody will know the difference. Plus its an evening job so you can do it while keeping your day job, and you get paid out cash, so if you want it can be "tax free money" if that's what your looking for........

With his education, I don't think he is going to be willing to do that job.

OP, is there anyway that you could see if you can get this expunged from your record? How long ago did this happen? Did you run over an old man?

typical background checks only go back 5 years. if you're looking for a job that requires any type of clearance then you're screwed. supposedly those background checks will find everything you've ever done, even if it was expunged or sealed.

Could've sworn you were going to ask this for your brother, but as far as I know, he's never been charged.


You could always get into the car theft business like him...

His brother was/is involved in a massive theft ring in SoCal area. Leo admitted to it and knows all about it, then started lying to cover it up. Read the thread if you've got some time.

if it was reduced to a misdemeanor then it shouldn't be that hard to find a job, lots of people i know have stupid misdemeanors and still have decent jobs.

I am confused why the government (I assume you mean the federal government) would work with you but these other companies will not.

What exactly are they asking you that you feel you need to reveal that you have a misdemeanour conviction?

Apparently, import/auto shops in the tri-state area.

For example, most of the participators in the Drag Racing forum or B20Vtec.com. They prefer experience.

You do not have a felony on your record, my friend. It would be in your best interest to stop reporting that you do to prospective employers. As mentioned, you may want to look into having your record expunged as well, as that will remove all records (even on a misdemeanor it can be worth it).

Yeah dude, don't report that ****. I've been charged with two separate felonies from two separate incidents and was not convicted of anything. You basically have to answer yes to a question that says "Have you ever been CHARGED with a felony", but you can answer no to "Have you ever been CONVICTED of a felony".

People make dumb mistakes when they are young, most employers overlook it if it wasn't rape, murder or child pornography.

First off, the fear of ruining my life keeps me from hitting people with my car.

Anyway, you should really look into UPS. They provide benefits even if you work part time, there's always the possibility to work full time, there's many positions/tasks and time frames to pick from...good stuff. Getting experience like that and holding the job for a couple yrs will overshadow your criminal record.
