Are there any jobs available for felons?

I got out of jail, ready to start my life over. Start fresh. You know, do it right this time? My brother and sister in law took me in and not only housed me but my sister in law hired me as her office assistant and gave me a chance to prove myself which in all the hardwork I put in at that job and the dedication to my job I did a lot of training and gained a lot of skills unfortunately due to my health I was let go March 2021. It had been 7 months and every job I've applied to has rejected me due to my felony drug charge from 3 years ago my 2 misdemeanors from 3 years ago my theft III and my identity theft which was a misunderstanding. I have applied for over 100 jobs and have been rejected every time. Please help me by letting me know of any jobs in the Willamette Valley of Oregon or the Vancouver Seattle area of Washington that hire felons. Thank you #advice #jobsearch #interview #followup #application #backgroundcheck #termination #unemployment

Try a staffing agency, they might not be so difficult to get an interview, I am not sure id want to hire a felon who stole.. big big risk. But everyone does deserve a second chance. Keep trying.

Why is my background check taking so long?

It’s been over three weeks since I applied, interviewed, passed the drug screen, and signed the background check release document. Every time I call the employer to get a status update they claim the background check results haven’t been received. I don’t have any felonies or outstanding warrants. Maybe they just don’t want to offer me the job!

I just recently got sober for the first time in a very long time. Going ninety days now and I thought my life had really turned around I was blessed with a job at the hostess brands warehouse through Elwood staffing. I had been there about two weeks, never late, no issues at all, was even told twice by my training supervisor that I was doing an excellent job. Well today my house arrest decided I needed to prove to her that I was not allowed to have my cell phone on the production floor. So I called Elwood and asked for them to email my home detention officer the rule on this and was told that hostess doesn’t like to work with people on home detention and that I failed the background check and they terminated me. Mind you the background check was done and cleared prior to my start date and Elwood had to email my schedule to my home detention officer in order for me to get approved for work. Feeling really frustrated and hopeless here in Indianapolis. I am a great worker and have turned my life around and thought I had a great opportunity…. #jobsearch #interview #backgroundcheck

Hi! I am a returning citizen. I made some mistakes in the past and have a felony record. I haven’t had anything negative on my record for almost 20 years and I’m having a hard time finding a job because of failing the background check. People have said that employers don’t go farther back than 7-10 years when doing a background check but that is not true. I have paid my debt to society and have even got my voting rights back. When will I stop being judged for past mistakes? Enough is enough. #convictedfelons #advice #secondchances #backgroundcheck

Feeling a little exposed...

I haven't given notice to my current employer yet because after signing the offer I was told that I would have to complete a background check and drug test. I am not worried about the drug test but after the background check I'm worried they might hold my recent bankruptcy against me. It should be pretty obvious why I had to file. I spent 3.5 years working at less than half my usual salary and was just in too deep. I won't have access to any money though I know for travel, most companies like for you to use your personal credit cards and then be reimbursed and obviously I don't have any now. I don't know, maybe I'm over thinking but after years of let downs I'm too paranoid to give my notice until I know for certain I have the 'all clear' from them on the background check. My target start date is the 18th and they were pushing things so I could give notice next week so I'm hoping to hear something today. Meanwhile, I know my supervisor and manager suspect that I'm about to quit. My manager is giving me the silent treatment and will only speak to me through the supervisor - and we are all in one open room, so I get spoken about like I'm not in the room. I just do not want to give my notice and then have to eat my words...

Hopefully today I will know. Sorry for rambling.

People deserve a second chance

Several years ago I got into some trouble. It's been years since all this happen. I'm a very hard worker and have experience in several things. No one wants to give someone a chance.

Home Depot

My first time posting here. I'm just a little frustrated, but trying to be patient. Home Depot was looking to hire 80,000 people Nationwide & I made it through the assessment tests, the phone interview and then a face to face interview with the assistant manager. I am a perfect fit for the department they were hiring for. The asst. Manager hired me on the spot and said HR would get back to me. I sat there & did both the background check & drug test, neither of which I would have a problem with. I've called to follow up several times & The only response I get is if HR hasn't gotten back with you yet, they haven't received your results. It's been 16 days. I had stopped looking for a job because I believed this was my new home. I'm wanting to go see the head of HR to talk face to face & ask questions. Or do I continue filling out applications? Concerned individual with mad skills and Great work ethics!!
