Do You have a Criminal Record?

Apply to these 100+ Companies

Finding a job is challenging.  Finding a job when you have a criminal record or a felony is even more difficult.

But it’s not impossible

More and more companies are willing to give people with a felony conviction a second chance and an opportunity to break out of the criminal lifestyle cycle.

Before you start applying, it’s important to know what felon friendly employment opportunities are available to you. Otherwise, you are just wasting your time.

If you are looking for a job with a felony record, focus on getting a job anywhere you can. You need to get your foot in the door somewhere, anywhere that is willing to give you a chance.

Local Companies

Locally owned businesses have a lot more freedom to hire whomever they choose to hire and are less likely to run criminal background checks, which could be a big advantage for you.

Driving & Trucking

If you don’t mind long-distance travel and being alone on the road, many trucking and transportation companies offer on-the-job training and typically pay well.

Mechanics & Automotive

If you like cars but don’t want to work as a driver, you could fix and service vehicles if you have the right skills and experience.

Restaurants & Fast Food

The restaurant industry is a great place to learn and grow on the job. You can quickly move up the ranks from a minimum wage fast-food worker to a well-paid fine-dining chef.

Construction & Skilled Trade

Between electricians, plumbers, carpenters, welders, woodworkers, construction sites, roofers, HVAC, and general labor needs, there are many different job opportunities.

Tech Companies

There are many job opportunities in the tech industry including data entry, sales, cable assembly, line installation, communications, tech support, software development, and web design.

Oil, Gas & Energy

If you are physically fit, don’t mind hard work or getting dirty, and live in the right area or are willing to move or travel, you might consider a job in the oil and gas industry.

Grocery Stores & Retail

From stocking shelves, unloading inventory, cleaning, and maintenance to being a cashier, working in the deli or cafe, bagging groceries, order picking, and customer service.

The Military

The US Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, and the Canadian Armed Forces have all hired people with criminal records.

Warehousing, Shipping & Receiving

Companies have a lot of inventory and require staff to load and unload these boxes, arrange shipments, verify records and deliveries, and stock shelves.

Start Your Own Company

Do you have skills that you can use to start your own business? If so, self-employment could be a great option for you where your criminal record likely won’t be a hurdle.
