I have a principal to robbery charge that has prevented me to get every job I've applied for. Since my prison bid I have worked a full time job, bought a car, maintained a license for a consecutive 3 years !!! The charge was in 2017. I'm not on parole or probation. Applebee's turned me down. Effin APPLEBEES ?!!! What do I do? Flip burgers? 2 jobs paycheck to paycheck? # #jobsearch #felony #backgroundcheck #advice #careeradvice

Applebee's is like that. I have a manager license to run any restaurant and they turned me down. What you can do is keep a positive outlook on everything. Apply to as many places as you can. Also Google what companies hire people that have a record. You could also seek out a job recruiting agency in your area.. they will be able to find you a job you like. Good luck, as it's a tough world out here.

Here in NY there's a Recruitment agency called EthanAllen Workforce Solutions...maybe in your state as well...They're good people to work for.... Just a suggestion, maybe to get your foot in the door and earn (?) the trust of future employers. Apply for their Flagger positions...look ontheir.Website.
You GOT This!!

Hi there About a record I suggest that if you have any Real friends associates that are in the food industry and they are willing to take a chance and vouch for you the possibility of landing a good job is greater.. Skills are better paid and more rewarding blue collar jobs if you really want to make a better living. Carpenters / home framers make good money Women can do that Construction as well and so forth Even working in body shops preparing cars for paint ( to be painted ) Pays about 15 to 19 bucks commission and you can earn from 40 to 100 hrs in a good week It could vary however don't give up cause in the past I help a friend that serve 5 years in and I hooked up my friend with a company doing repairs on cars the only bad outcome is that he didn't change his old bad company and you can imagine where hi is at again . Never give up! That's the bottom line!!!!!!!

I'm asking individuals on "Jobcase" to PLEASE STOP seeking your information from ONLY other individual posting on this website - do a little homework on your own. If you accept only responses posted here, you are limiting yourself. I give a response periodically, because like many here, I'm also job hunting. I've worked in Human Resources for probably 90% of my work history, nevertheless, I'm still learning - don't rely on my words alone - Google your state laws, check with Unemployment. The infor mation I've listed below was pulled from ncsl.org, hopefully you'll find the information helpful and still check further. Good luck!


Certification of Rehabilitation Another policy option chosen by some states offers people with criminal records the opportunity to secure certificates of rehabilitation or certificates of employability that would open the door to receiving occupational licenses. Although the application of these certificates varies from state to state, they “may be used to provide a way for qualified people with criminal records to demonstrate rehabilitation or a commitment to rehabilitation,” and to relieve barriers to jobs and licenses. Certificates of rehabilitation may also be a viable option for states that have yet to adopt comprehensive record closure laws (expungement/sealing) since some are able to “directly limit the application of collateral consequences” while not removing information from a person’s record or limiting public access.

At least 12 states now make certificates of rehabilitation available through the court system and a few others through administrative agencies including California, Colorado, Illinois, North Carolina, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Washington.

Apply as a security guard for mobile cash carry like Brinks. Get an interview no matter how you do it, treat the guy to lunch, but explain those days are over with and you definitely learned your lessons. Now who would you want defending your proceeds? A fellow who knows nothing about the types who would rob you and the manner in which they operate or a guy like me who knows the types who rob and can see a set up happening and take necessary actions to defend or better yet, prevent any robbery attempt from happening?

And to add on too what you were saying, I would endeavor to have your records sealed; you will need an attorney for this, but it will be worth it!

I have a lot of criminal charges violent, drugs and one or two more but most restaurants will hire you even if your a convicted felon look for franchise owned restaurants when applying most corporate owned restaurants have different rules when hiring from what I've learned. Check online to see if the company hires convicted felons because a lot of restaurants used to hire people just released from prison I can't remember the program name for it but a lot of people ruined that with restaurant fires and other incidents. So any company that ever had the program will not hire violent convicted felons. Also if your willing to do it almost all construction, landscaping, or roofing jobs will hire with a record. I hope this info helps I wish you the best of luck I hope you find what your looking for
