When applying for positions that ask this question, it is often left with 2 options to choose from. Yes or No. What I really want to put, if the option were available, in a comment box is; "What are your passing qualifications?" Or is it just assumed that it must be "free and clear" of anything current? Does it include past/expunged? I am ok with the question "have you ever been convicted of a felony?" because that is a definite "NO". I have been instructed by several friends and past colleagues to just answer "yes" instead. Is that frowned upon later? #jobsearch #advice #felony #wordsofadvice

Yes and No are answers to an Interrogation, not an Interview, know the difference, or buy a bigger jar of lube..

I have a class B felony that can't be expunged or anything like that. It was in 1986. Since then, I have NEVER been in any kind of trouble. I'm 55 years old, and a respectable member of society. I just interviewed and was offered a job with a convenience store. I was sent an e-mail for the background check, and I was denied. My husband told me I should lie about it and hope they don't go back more than 7 to 10 years. I told him that I can't and I have to be honest, but...honesty is keeping me from a decent (somewhat) job. What is the opinon? If I get a job and they find the felony...I get fired. If I'm honest about the felony...I get no job...what do I do??? #advice #felony #jobsearch #interview

my felonies are due to having a pipe in my possession and my background report reads in all CAPS "FELONY DANGEROUS DRUGS. Guilty." I didn't even have drugs on me. Just a bit of residue in my pipe each time I was searched. Once when I simply walked into Casino Arizona by myself on my birthday at 7:30am where, in the lobby, stood a casino security guard and a cop who demanded to search my purse claiming it was company policy. And he went through every nook and cranny!! Found my pipe and I got to spend my birthday in the matrix. The other time a friend got pulled over and had a warrant, giving the cops right to search. Since then, 2016, I have lost my North Scottsdale home, my car and all of my possessions. Why? Because I can't get a job!! Why? Because of Arizona law and the PIGS that they are. Everyone hiring background checks!! I used to make $150,000 a year!! Now I'm lucky if I make $150 a week. As for housing... I've only been able to rent rooms and the one I'm in now has been great! By far the best... But, the owner is coming back from Florida in September and I have to move out. What now? With my FELONIES, LOUSY CREDIT and the INSANE RENTAL PRICES... I figure I have two choices. Hang Myself OR Go Gangster!! So, I ask those of you in law enforcement and those of you in high society that determine the laws and due process... What exactly do you gain from my scenario? I can’t pay your $3500 fines, you haven’t locked me up to benefit from my slaved labor… So, how exactly is this situation, like so many others, improving society?! If you ask me… You aren’t in the business of lowering crime. You’re in the business of breeding it!! I’m too chicken to hang myself. Therefore, I must survive! And to survive, criminal activity will take place. Kudos!
