jobs for felons - help wanted

Finding jobs for felons is one of the most important and difficult tasks once you have been released. Every company has a different stance when it comes to providing jobs for felons and it can be difficult and very time consuming to discover a companies policy.

This list is meant to be used to help identify employers that are more open to hiring those who have a record and provide guidance on how to best approach them.
Below is a list of companies that we have personally contacted for information regarding jobs for felons. This is not a list that was copied from other sources. We contacted each company to get answers to the following questions:

  • What is the companies policy for providing jobs for felons
  • Has the company hired former felons in the past
  • Does the company have a special program to provide jobs for felons
  • Who makes the hiring decisions
  • What is the best way to secure a position with the company
  • Hiring locations
  • Hiring website links

This list will be continuously updated as we contact more and more employers. If you know of a company that provides jobs for felons and should be added to the list please leave a comment below or email adam@successfulrelease.com the information.

    I like that you do more than publish a list. You contact the company and ask specific questions. However, one of the companies you list is Veritude Staffing. Yet when I look at the details, the employer all but says they do not hire felons. They basically say that it would be unlikely that they’d ever hire a felon. I think the list would have more integrity if companies with this kind of attitude toward felony applicants were not lists.

    I think any information that is posted pertaining to this topic is very helpful! I am personally a felon who has just been released from prison in July of this year, so far i have yet to find a job that will hire me, i’ve been turned down numerous times and it gets very discouraging! I dont give up and i put in atleast 10-15 apps every week.. Please keep posting information to help people like myself, it is much appreciated!! thank you!

    When applying for a job either skip the question about felonies or simply put will explain in interview. Then after the interview, when you call to follow up ask them if it was the felony that is the reason they won’t hire you. If it is ask to get that in writing, then you can prove to the judge that your trying but being on probation isn’t helping and ask for termination of probation. Either way you can’t lose.
