I received a drug related felony about 15 years ago. I began working part time at the age of 13. Worked part time until graduating high school. At that time I went to college for 2 semesters but had to many extra circular activities and it wasn’t for me. I came back to work at the same company I worked for all the way through high school. When I was 28 I got mixed up in some stuff I shouldn’t have. Needless to say I ended doing 18 months in jail... see more

You know I've never been one to discriminate against anyone who has been in prison. Not everybody that goes to jail is a bad person, and some people make bad choices, with that being said I do not understand how is it I cannot find a job. I am qualified to do a multitude of things yet I have been ghosted, replied to week's later or told no thank you. It seems almost feudal to even remotely attempt to try to find a job in an economy that needs... see more

I have 3 felonies for shoplifting (which are due to mental health issues that are not resolved) and honestly any job is going to be hard to get. Id never steal from my job. I don't even steal from stores anymore either. It's a problem that's been resolved. But my background can't be resolved so... see more

Oil and gas is always hiring. I've seen guys with felonies, drug related, get hired as long as they pass a drug test. In the state of WV, these poeple make 50k>75k a year.

There are organizations that help felons find employment.

Sir. I know there are lists for individuals who have felons at the 901 building also at the parole office on North Market up stairs. Also at Drug an Alcohol facilities such as Knox Center on East Douglas St.

I was offered a job as a Welder/Fitter at Siemens Mobilty AG. I took the offer and got all my tests done and passed, drug screen,vision,hearing and soforth. I was told I was to start on 11/4. Now they say 11/11. I have a felony conviction on my record. My question is can they disqualify you for a felony conviction. I thought in CA you can't be turned away for any convictions felony or misdemeanor. Just wondering what everyone thinks.
