It's more cost effective if I stay "sick". Once you are in the system on any level, it's impossible to get out.

There is a pretty thorough background check about your past record discussion that you can check. We also have some interview tips to address your past that you can consider. Or it never hurts to ask directly about what their hiring process looks like, what are the steps involved and it will not implicate anything. Good luck!

What is up with these staffing agencies?

Hi my name is Elizabeth and I just moved to AZ to start a new life with my 2 boys. Since the beginning of September I have been looking for a job. I've gone in and got applications, I was told to apply on line, I was even told to come in for job interview. Six times I thought for sure I had a job and six times they like ripped the rug right out from under me. I know I have a horrible background but thats not who I am. I'm just needing for someone to hire me so that I can prove not only to myself but to the rest of my family that moving out here isn't a mistake. I have NEVER looked for a job this hard before in my life. So this background of mine is like really in my face now. I'm so ashamed that its embarrassing to me.

Criminal Past? Gotta own it.

https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/20b98c00-118d-5c46-97bd-6dfad53a5662

Well, it sounds like the first guy was talking complete bullshit and the 2nd guy -- almost humanely -- let him know they weren’t going to be hiring any convicted felons anytime soon. That is their right. And depending on the business? BANK, RETAIL, TRANSPORTATION, HEALTH CARE? All open them up to MASSIVE LIABILITY and if they’re not OK w/ the fact that he has to OWN his past, then so be it.

That’s the thing about one’s decisions in life. You’re going to pay for it. Especially in this day and age when I can pay 20 bucks and find out your entire life story. And that’s scary. But it is the way it is. I currently work at a financial institution. First time ever doing so. The background checks? The finger printing? The “mug shots”? The personal references? Um. After a week of that? With my 10uyear old DUI and my temporarily crappy credit? “I’m screwed.” They offered me the job -- as long as all my checks cleared. It was Day 10 after the offer and I sweated through ANOTHER weekend of waiting. Understand,, this job would be the best paying job of my life. And a huge step in my career path (tech). And the interviews? Went wonderfully. And they offered me the job. But I had to wait. I wrote a long email to my potential supervisor about my credit, etc. I shared it w/ my recruiter who became horrified I would even consider sending such a thing.

We argued like a couple breaking up. Phones were hung up. Curse words were exchanged. But in my heart, I wanted at least the CHANCE to defend myself. Or explain myself. “Don’t just read that damn report and think you know me!” I thought. So after that 2nd weekend, I knew my past was rearing its ugly head and I was going to be turned away, my job offered taken back and given to someone else. I was a complete wreck Oh,and btw, I was dead broke. 2 more weeks? I ‘d be homeless. DAMMIT.

So that Monday morning I woke up and sat at my computer. I had an email address from the HR gal that sent me all the background documents. And I wrote her an email.

“Hi, __:: I felt compelled to write you and the company to let you know I am very aware of my credit and I’m working on a solution and how best to recoup my financial good standing. I would feel wrong if I didn’t acknowledge it. So I am doing so now and hope this doesn’t dissuade __ocmpany from going through my hire, because I really want this job and to work for your company. That is all. Thank you for reading... best, John S.”

And about an hour later? My recruiter, who was screaming at me the last time we spoked - and for good reason -- called me and said: “Are you sitting down?” ME: “Should I be?” HER: “YOU GOT THE JOB!!!” And a big smile took up my entire face and I listened as she congratulated the freaking hell out of me, all excited. And I think I was happier for her for that entire day.

And as of right now? She doesn’t know I wrote them.
And never will.

That’s what I did to somehow mitigate my past, give it some shape or put it under a different light. Yes, I went rogue. But hell, I had noting to lose besides my home.

Do what you can w/in the law to make a potential employer see YOU and YOU and YOU in a different light.

I guarantee you that 99 times out of a 100, they wouldn’t hired me. But you’ve got to know something about me. I ALWAYS BELIEVE I AM THAT ONE IN HUNDRED. I ALWAYS BELIEVE I AM THE DAMN EXCEPTION. I ALWAYS BELIEVE ... in me. It’s what I do best especially when my back is up against it. That’s when I shine.

BELIEVE IN YOUR SELF. OWN YOUR PAST. AND BELIEVE IN YOU GETTING PAST ANY OBSTACLE

Now goddamit..., go get’em.

Research the Company you’re interviewing for! No excuses!

Someone asked about Home Depot...Well, here’s over a thousand applicant stories and questions. https://www.glassdoor.com/Interview/The-Home-Depot-Interview-Questions-E655.htm

glassdoor.com is just one review site.

There is no excuse for not being informed None.If it’s a company in the US? There’s something written about it. Take everything you read w/ a grain of salt.Others’ stories are not yours. Make your own. Make it positive. And get work.

KNOW YOUR FUTURE EMPLOYER
