My Boss Retracted my Job Offer

I was so excited to switch over to another department after being overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated. My new position had the same benefits, but with better pay, great hours, and there was also a balance in the workload. I gave my two weeks notice to my supervisor and did all the prep work for my fellow coworkers. On my last day, I got a call from my future supervisor, that the offer has been retracted due to my current supervisor explaining I am not qualified for the position, but would gladly take me back to remain working in my current position. I found out my supervisor is known to sabotage people leaving the department. So I took it to HR, with documents and anything I could use as proof against her accusations. Though I did not get the job offer back, I did get another interview and was able to move to another position.

Background

OK, so, I've been looking for permanent employment for some time now. I fill out applications get called for interviews, and then they say they are going to do a background check, and I never hear another thing from them, it's very discouraging. OK, yeah, I've made some bad decisions in my life, I took a negative situation and did something positive with it, I got my GED, learned from this experience and now I've been labeled for life. BUT, I still have a work ethic, I have not forgot my knowledge and wisdom of how to be a great employee, but can't seem to find that right job, that will give me a second chance, I am dependable, reliable, still have all my experience of my past jobs. I kno I'm not the only one out there in this position

No second chances

I am a recovering alcholic. Was a full on alcholic for nine years. I have been sober of 11 months. No one will give me a shot. Even starting at the bottom, laborer, apprentice, nothing. I was a chief estimator that almost always made by quota. Jobs from 10k to over 20 million. Project managed jobs, sometimes 14 at a time, from 500k to 15 million. I just want a shot! I will work for slave wages, just let me make up for it. I have to admit I did have many more than just one chance....there is a thing called serenity.

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.

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.
