 Policy For Hiring Those With Felony Convictions

We received the following response after contacting them regarding their hiring policies for those with felony convictions:

“Each store owner determines their hiring policy.

They are required to follow all state and federal guidelines.

Have They Hired Former Felons?

They did not specifically confirm that they have hired former felons but did not rule it out completely. The fact that each local franchise owner controls hiring make it very likely that DQ has hired former felons in the past at some of their locations.

Specific Program For Hiring Former Felons

They do not have a specific program for the hiring of those with felony convictions.

Who Makes Hiring Decisions

Hiring decisions are made by the owners and managers of the local franchises.

The Best Way To Secure A Position

Applying at your local Dairy Queen and convincing the management to hire you is your best bet to secure a position.

Applying in person and explaining your conviction face-to-face generally is much better than simply filling out an application.

If you can get a referral from another employee at that location you will also be helping yourself out tremendously.
