It does not matter if you have a felony or not, in the interview process if you are lucky to make it that far they will know what kind of person you are regardless of what you’re background says. Your work ethic and previous job experience say a lot about you, I had a felony for a violent crime for something small and simple and I disclosed it from the very beginning and it was 5 years old, I was hired on the spot at frito lay with no questions asked, literally left the interview and didn’t even make it back to my vehicle before I got a call from my recruiter and had the job offer, so nothing is impossible.
Their background checks only go back 7 years.
They are felon friendly depending on the time..
You was denied employment because you just got out of prison.. the time starts after your release date...or after your after your parole....
It is a shame how businesses will not even give someone a chance. If they were convicted 17 to 20 years ago then that should show change! A person cannot change their past..... only their futures. Such small minded people out there.... always wanting to keep a knee on someones back.
Probably not considering you have a criminal record.

My felony is almost 20 years ago. I got out in June of this year and I was denied employment.
