 Policy For Hiring Those With Felony Convictions

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

“We hire everyone. It depends on the type of job and the offense that the clients that we work with are willing to accept. 

The people we do business have certain rules and guidelines we have to follow in order to maintain business with them.

Have They Hired Former Felons?

We received the following response:

“Yes, we have.”

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 both the hiring manager of Onin with input from their client companies. Company wide guidelines are also followed but nobody is automatically excluded. Typically in these situations the hiring manager is the final decision maker with Human Resources supporting the manager and ensuring that Federal, State, Local, and company policies are followed.

The Best Way To Secure A Position

Since they do not have a specific program for hiring those with felony convictions the best way to secure employment is by going to your local Onin branch location and applying there.

Getting an employee referral can also be extremely helpful. Finding someone who works for the company that can act as your reference is the best way to overcome the hurdle of having a felony conviction.

If you are unable to find a company referral the best way to apply would be online.
