Does the list of employment very state by state? Does APUA have a website that could be made into a sticky maybe? I think was very helpful of you to have posted this! :)

You can take WalMart off your list because they don't hire ex-felons at any time. At least in the CSRA area.

So are you saying that these particular companies won't immediately write you off if you put "yes" next to the felony conviction question? And also does it have to be 7 years old or not?

We're in Georgia. My son has a first offender possession arrest and is on probation. Target offered him a job but then retracted it after the background check came back :(

So far, the only employment offers have been at restaurants where drug and alcohol abuse abound amongst the employees. He will continue to look elsewhere.

If I can ask is it a felony or misdemeanor possession charge?

labor ready is the company that my b.d works for, they dont do background checks unless one of the contractors ask for one which is like 1/100.... They are paid and sent out to work daily...

Wal Mart is definitely off that list. I just got turned down for a job there, despite being ridiculously overqualified. Reason was of course the results of the background check. Phooey.

It's felony possession. And, I misspoke. It is his first offense, but his is a conditional discharge. He will be discharged and the charges dismissed if he completes his probation successfully. Ultimately, we are eternally grateful that he was arrested; otherwise, he'd still be an addict. I just wish someone would give him a break and hire him!

Excuse me, but I am the user who originally posted the list of companies that hire the ex-offenders and how come you show like you did it?? Please don't take my complaint the wrong way nor I'm not making a big fuss about it, but I'm just letting you know and reminding you that I was the person who originally posted this list in the beginning!

How could you have posted this first since this thread is from 2010 and you didn't actually join until 2011?

Well thats kind of weird what you're saying b/c its true, I did join just this year BUT the post of that list that I had posted was just yesterday! Why would I make that up? Oh well, just forget it, the most important thing is that its information that is useful to all of us, regardless of you posted it!

I didn't say you made up anything. What I am telling you is that the person who started this thread posted the employer list *before* you (October, 2010). You posted your list after (September 2011). It's not that it's really that important since that list can be found anywhere.

Thanks for the list 'Billysbutton' ... and I agree some of the companies listed do not normally hire felons/ex-felons, however it never hurt to apply for a position you would like to have, claim it ... What's the worse they can say? Plus it's not like they can arrest you for applying, I personally know about 3 felons who currently work for Walmart, I also know a ex-felon who was offered 3 different position at the same time and passed all 3 background checks without lying within six months out of state prison ... S/N: I have now seen it all on PTO ... lol
