It just depends on what state you work in. Some stated have stricter laws on background checks with your pay grade and how many years they can go back. If salary is a high pay then some states allowed to hold it against you depending on what the charge is it doesn't matter how old it is. My bf has theft charges that are over 12yrs and still cant get retail jobs. And its not a retail theft charge.

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

Hired&Fired?

I got hired at a shelter so I figured this would be great experience I am a full-time student about to graduate in the healthcare field and don't know exactly what I want to do but I love helping people. I was very happy to get this job and happily signed over my Cori and said to the man I have not been in trouble in over 10 years he said then we should be fine I assumed everything would be fine as we had already discussed the fact that I had a checkered past as a young child growing up in the foster care system but have since for the past 15 years been doing very well for myself so I was waiting for a text message back on what day I was going to Shadow somebody now I would have been working and have a schedule that day if I had not told the man to take his time and think about who he wanted to place me with as to who he wanted me to Shadow with. I hadn't heard anything from him by the next Wednesday and I was supposed to work that weekend so I text messaged him and asked him just what was going on and he told me that he was going to have to and I have the sun message no longer go forward with the employment. That was what he said do to my Cori that was also what he said so I asked him to have Human Resources contact me in which they didn't they just sent my Cori to my house and that was nothing that was new to me as we had discussed it so what was on there that was the most recent was from 2006 larceny under and receiving stolen property I guess that is something that is tagged on with larceny under so these are crimes that I have done time for these are hard Lessons Learned. I have come a long way since this time and since any of this has gone on I am a completely different person thank God but we discussed this and I'm confused as to how I got hired and fired and still don't know why I have people that I speak to telling me that I should look into this but this isn't right you know and I've had all too many this isn't right go on with jobs I really don't care to follow up on it except for this person is saying they didn't accept me because of my Cori but my Cori has something from 2006 on it that is a misdemeanor and we discussed it I'm just wondering am I doomed really though is this destined to follow me around and ruin my career even after I get my degree? I thought since we had discussed it and since he saw me and I am make no business of hiding my past it's been a long time also just kind of feeling like it was wrong.

Labor shortage is having a positive effect for ex-convicts job search

People with criminal records are often at the back of the line when it comes to hiring. They normally find it easier to find jobs when the unemployment rate is low but with unemployment still in the high 5's it turns out many companies are now looking to give a second chance to the 20 MM Americans with a criminal record when it comes to hiring.

Are you an ex-con currently looking for work? How's the process been going for you and what challenges have you been facing? #jobsearch #secondchances

Second Chances - Preparing for release

Hi All,

I have an incarcerated friend getting out in about a year (!!!) and we are trying to figure out what I can do to help him get a job asap when he is out. For all of those who are formerly incarcerated, what did you wish you had done beforehand? He doesn’t have a meeting with the parole board for 6 more months - should we wait until then to start looking? What information did you need when applying for jobs? He has previous experience with warehouse work, but definitely also has an interest in working with animals (maybe at a kennel or doggy daycare or something), but I am sure he would be down with any sort of work.

This is a pretty confusing process and neither of us have experience with it, so any info about your experience that you could provide would be much appreciated! Thank you for reading!
