Posted by | September 21, 2011 | Employment Blog

Here is a list of companies that hire ex-offenders and felons. If you know of any other companies that are hiring, or can provide additional information on business listed here, please leave a comment below and we will modify the list accordingly.

Did you know that research has shown that most ex-offenders are more committed and willing to do more than just the job. Normally ex-offenders and felons are more grateful for the opportunity to do something worthwhile rather than falling back into criminal activity.

People often start offending because of an unfortunate upbringing or bad circumstances within their families. Maybe a good employer and the positive influence of work colleagues can, in part, be a replacement for a dysfunctional family.

Looking for employment when you have a criminal record is more difficult when so many businesses discriminate because an incident which might have happened numerous years ago.

      I’m not quite sure about that, I know someone who works at a home depot that has a felony. I think this might depend on area.
