Yes they hire felons. Not all felons, but some. I'll reiterate what someone's already said about theft and violence being a bit if an issue, but it just depends on the situation. They'll want to know what happened, when it happened, and whether it's a recurring theme in your life. I'm a felon and they hired me as a seasonal package handler. I was up front about my past and actually brought it up at my first tour/interview. My felony was non-violent and not at all theft related, i didn't have anything else on my record, and it had been three years since i took the plea and four years since my offense. I was of course laid off two or three days into the new year, but i kept going in to work everyday just in case someone called or or they needed an extra body for some reason, just kept after it, and i finally officially got my job back after about four months. I've been with them for just about two years now and my past has never affected my job in any way. My advice to someone with some "stuff" in their past like me would be to apply, be forthcoming and honest, and then be persistent as bleep. Worked for me.

UPS Freight would work us 12 plus hours a shift whether we wanted it or not. It didn't matter if you had 30 days or 30 years in.it didn't matter if you were 25 years old or 60. And it didn't matter if you felt great or under the weather.
