My son is in Houston has a felony conviction with 2 yrs college. He needs a job like yesterday. Can someone point him in the right direction. He doesn't have a car so it has to be on the bus line. He will work. He needs help in a situation that if he stays it is going to get worse.

convict need a employment in Houston, Texas

44 months ago

In my past I sold drugs and I got 2 convictions for drug charges. I'm on a path to turn my life in the right direction but my felonies are holding me down. Every morning I'm up on hunt for a job, I don't care what the job is as long as I'm working. My parole officer is on my back because I can't pay my parole fees even though she know that I'm really and truly looking a job.I go to the workforce and every job lead they've giving me has lead me to nothing.I got a family that I need to take care of,can any body give some leads that will help me out. THANK YOU.

God is a good God!!!!! in Houston, Texas

42 months ago

I am a God fearing women and I made a bad decision that may have effect my entire life. Last year I was recently charged with bribery and now I am placed on deferred adjudication. I am a single parent who is trying to find employment to provide for my family. Before I was convicted with an felony I worked many jobs as a head lifeguard, security officer, customer services, office clerical, dispatching, bus operator, and warehouse. This is the only conviction I have on my record, after I finish my probation the felony would be sealed.

I've heard that Texas Workforce Commission has a special department called "Career One Stop" that will help felons find jobs. I am going up there on Monday to see if they can or will really help. I will report back.

I have completed a 3 yr. Def. Adjudication Probation for a State Jail felony Charge of Theft. (I took my own tool from a Chem. Plant where I worked to fix my air conditioner at home and returned the tool a week later. When asked if I took the tool home, I told them, "yes". thinking nothing would happen? No harm no foul. Not the case. They filed because of new 911 laws referring to the chemical plants as being a "Foreign Trade Zone") I would like to be a Process Server for Texas, Houston area. I am an Ex-Certified Comm. Security Officer. Will this dismissed Charge hurt my chances of becoming a Process Server? I have to send application to Texas Supreme Court for approval. (I will have to answer "Yes" on the application, ever been charged or convicted of a crime?) Anyone have an answer? E-mail @ mfoshee@hotmail.com Thank You

I'm Trevin and havee a felon from over 10 years ago but still very hard for me to find employment. I have various skills including rail track, warehouse, chemical plant, tank cleaning experience. If any one knows of anyone that would be willing to give me a chance to work, I am more than willing. I know people make mistakes but once you have paid for your mistakes through the system why is it so hard to live a normal healthy life like every body else. It feels like the system is disigned for people to fail. Thanks

I'm an ex-con also I got out on supervised release 21 yrs ago when I lived up north in the mid west area and got out of prison jobs were plentiful and it was by the grace of god I was hired in 2 days after being released from prison i managed to keep that job for 10yrs and then my wife and I decided to move to florida so that ment I had to give my job up but since moving back down south I haven't been able to find gainful employment my convictions were drug related 1 had a 3rd sales/distribution the other a 5th degree possession charge but I haven't been in any trouble for bout 21yrs now also since then I've earned an AAS degree in Business Administrations,BS degree in Business Administrations and Im presently working on my MBA in Business Administrations which I'll have that by Dec of 2011 I think there should be some kind of laws put into place prohibiting companies that discriminate against ex cons that have served their without causing any problems and have not been in trouble since being released. Im located in the houston ,tx area so if anyone now of anyone hiring out there please email me at mlshaw67@yahoo.com or call me atthanks and take care

Looking for a job? i myself have 9 felony conviction,the last one is less then 1 yr. old and am on parole. if you are just looking for a job until you can find something better (like me) W.I.S. INTL. will hire anybody most of their ass. are convicted felons, they understand what we are going through, even some of there senior staff member's are convicted felons. So if you just want a job check them out the have opportunities all over u.s. Now the hrs. are all over the board some weeks you get 20 or more, others are less. But if you work hard show a positive attitude and are dependable. the better you get the more hrs. you get it's up to you. you get out what you put in. But it is a job satisfies parole and beats a blank

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP. I need a job. I have a felony theft charge that was reduced to a misdemeanor. I completed a 1 year deferred adjudication sentence which was successfully terminated after six months. I have extensive retail sales, clerical, and customer service experience. This case continues to haunt me no matter where I go to apply for jobs.I have learned a valuable lesson especially after practically losing everything due to this case.I would just like to move on and be the productive member of society once again. If anyone can help please. Im enrolled in school to further my education.I do have a college degree ,but neither of these matter once potential employers run my background.
