I received a letter in the mail. I was withheld / disqualified because i made a false report one time when I was a security guard. This incident happened when I was 19. Fast forward 6 years, I got out of the Marines, no criminal record and positive recommendations from my recent supervisors. Is it worth the time and hassle to go through the appeal process? I don't see the point in applying after a year if they can disqualify me again for a mistake I did 6 years ago. What will 1 year do to help?P...

Hello I'm a 2017 applicant, I'm currently on the background check. My concern is that I have a dui on my record from 2013. I applied for CDCR in 2014 and I was placed on withheld for the dui. Also, back in 2014 I received a letter saying I was on withheld because I got 1 dui in 3 years. My DUI will be 4 years old in July. I've also been reading people are getting disqualified if their dui's arent 5 years old. Do you think I'll get disqualified cause my DUI isn't 5 years old? That letter I receiv...

Hello!I was disqualified from backgrounds because I was terminated from target. I was working as a seasonal warehouse worker and I had an ear infection so I went home early. I called off the next day and then I was terminated because I was unreliable. My question is, should I appeal? I applied in 3/4/2014 and I was fired 3/16/2015, why does my letter say "you were terminated from employment for cause within one year of applying with CDCR"
