I was told that job companies are no longer supposed to use your non violent felony history against you, if this is true jobcase is not supposed to be telling me that I have multiple fellonies holding me back from getting better reviews

I made a damnable mistake, now 16yrs ago, but all employers seem to want me to be is "reliving of it". How does one get the chance/break one deserves ?

I've the same problem a felony now 16yrs ago, and despite the fact I've taken great pains NOT to make that mistake again, no one's seems to wants to take a chance once more. I'm a good man plus I'm not above taking a lower job so I can work my way up from the bottom if nessary. How does one get a chance, if anyone can offer advice-please do so. I know perserance, grit and just plain hard work should be the answer...

As a felon I'm having a really hard time finding a job again. I lost my job in February of 2020 and since having a felony conviction on my record, I have such a hard time finding a job. I get to the interviews even but once the background check goes even Walmart won't hire me. I have experience in many different areas and I'm willing to work from home even but places won't hire me whether it be Amazon, Walmart or whoever. People tell me because there are so many jobs available in Wisconsin that I should be able to find ones easily but that's not the truth. Maybe it is for 90% of the population but for those of us with a felony conviction we cannot get hired.

I worked at Dave's killer Bread and after a month of working there they not only fired me but humiliated me because my PRE-EMPLOYMENT MOUTH SWAB DRUG TEST CAME BACK POSITIVE FOR MARIJUANA.... SO THEY ESCORTED ME TO MY DESK AND THEN OFF THE PROPERTY LIKE I HAD COMMITTED SOME CRIME OR SOMETHING ... WHY DID THEY EVEN LET ME WORK FOR A MONTH IS WHAT I WANT TO KNOW .. AND THEY ARE SO BIG ON HIRING PEOPLE WITH FELONYS AND GIVING THEM A SECOND CHANCE BUT WHAT A WAY TO KICK SOMEBODY BACK DOWN THATS TRYING TO REBUILD THEMSELVES UP.... IM STILL PISSED LIKE WTF!!!
