Does anyone know if Amazon will hire a Felon? Know one can ever tell me because they werent sure. Or if they will hire someone with a felony, is it because the felony happened like over a certain amount of time/years? I would really appreciate the help on this. I just made some really poor choices and I now have to live with my decisions. I would really love the answer.
