Default Felon-friendly employers in VA?

My boyfriend just got fired because they found out that he has a felony. Can someone tell us where we can find a job in the Shenandoah area of VA, specifically near James Madison University?

I dont know exactly in your area however you have to be honest on job apps. Be straight up with people, they would rather know your honest than find out later. Normally consturction jobs are great for felons..my dad owns his own company and hires guyes from prison all the time.

Default Cox Farms

I work at Cox Farms in Centreville, VA [maybe an hour or so away from you... right up 66] and I'm pretty sure for the most part they will hire you. My mom is going to have a job there once she is released from Alderson FPC... check it out : Coxfarms.com

Good luck with your search!
