Please note that just because a company is listed here does not mean you have a 100% chance of landing the job. It’s not a list of jobs for felons you’ll definitely get.

We’d recommend checking out Snagajob for more local, smaller business opportunities. Signing up is totally free, but not mandatory to use their site. Having an account does make it quicker and easier to apply to jobs. You can also have job alerts sent to you email, which will let you know when new jobs that match your criteria are posted. There are a decent amount of jobs for felons which are more local than we have on here. Three people currently maintain this site. It would be impossible for us to maintain a list of local small businesses and local companies that are known to hire felons. Smaller businesses are a lot better at hiring people with criminal records.

Recently we came across Freedom 4 Felonz which is run by another ex-offender. It’s a great site if you’re looking to be your own boss. You can see more about them in our resources section.

We’d also suggest following us on Twitter @Exoffenders for live updates on this section and others. We always tweet when we update the jobs for felons section.

We have no affiliation with these employers. You have to go to their hiring website through the link to apply. Leaving a comment for the employer will not get to them.

    i was convicted of a felony on 10/31/13 and its my first felony ever do I have to wait the whole 6 yrs to get it expunged or can I get it done earlier I stay in ca

    • Kay says:

      This is just from a quick look through things when searching on google, and is not legal advice. It looks like you have to have completed probation, paid all fines & restitution, not spent time in prison for the offense, and have no new charges pending in California. Your best bet is to consult an attorney about it.

    • Joe r says:

      You have to wait until u r off probation or parole. Nothing until then n

    Can anyone tell me more about the process of record expungement?

    • Kay says:

      For which state?

    • Joe r says:

      In most states the process is similar. You have to file a petition with the court to open your case back up, set aside the verdict, then reclose the case without a verdict. There is no more verdict to hold you back. It will still show up on a background check as an expunged case tho. In some states you have to serve e DA and the prob dept prior to the court date and they can fight it. Most don’t.

    Does anyone know if Oil Rigs Hire Felons? My husband was charged with aggravated assault in a self defense case. His sentence was knocked down a few years so he will be coming home soon. I am currently in Texas but we were looking to move back to GA/AL area. I figured id go ahead and look for job opportunities for him. I am so thankful to whoever made this site. It makes things a lot easier. Hopefully he will be able to find something, he is pretty bummed as he was a paralegal and now will no longer be able to work in that field.

    I’ve called it home desperate for 20 years, I still shop there, and if you had actually read and comprehended my post, I was letting people know they had better than usual chance of getting hired. A win-win for the felon and company, not that your oh-so-constructive comment deserved any explanation from me. And your point was just to slam me like a bitch? What is your problem? Go troll somewhere else, I’m not interested. Dork.

    Its hard out here for a pimp. Gotta lie to kick it to make it in this Suckas world.
    I say apply, and don’t lie on your app if they ask. You don’t want to waste your time anyway if they run you. Besides you want to feel comfortable wherever you’re working, and do not tell any employees if there is a chance you can lose your job. People can’t hold secrets.
    Work hard, believe in your capabilities and above all pray. You only want to be where the Lord want you to be anyway. Stay real encouraged is my message, I know its hard out there. But eventually something is gonna give.

    • Jay Rollin says:

      Thanks for posting. I really needed to hear that right now as I have 2 interviews this morning. Getting turned down from minimum wage jobs is not a good feeling especially if your over qualified for the position. Something got to give.

      • Toni says:

        I definitely understand the feeling of being turned around from minimum wage jobs and being over qualified for the position

    • 15 years of "school" says:

      Thank you for the pick me up. I’ve been out now for 89 days after doing 15. I have a job but people are lame. they don’t realize that the past creates, it does NOT define. Stay up.

    • jabezresourcegroup says:

      thank ms v for your comment. nowadays it is SO very easy to find yourself in a predicament legally and suddenly have so many doors closed to you, but just because man turns you away, doesnt mean God has turned his back.. your journey may be a little more challenging now, but even when people make mistakes, i’m a firm believer they still have gifts left, they just need to be appropriately place. to anyone else reading this, i say dont give up! the world still needs you! find and solve a problem and you’ll see the world unfold for you! God bless! and thank you to the creators of this site! youve helped me help some friends in need!

    Hello! I am so happy that I just found this site! It’s great to connect with others who are in the same boat as I am. I have a theft by deception charge (class A felony) and a forgery charge (class B felony). I committed the crime 5 yrs ago but was convicted of the crimes 4 yrs ago. I was 28 at the time and these charges are the only criminal record I have. I am blessed that I didnt serve jail time. I received a 12mo suspended sentence for 4 yrs and 2 yrs probabtion, which they let me off early (15mo) for good behavior. I also live in NH. As for getting your record expunged, for a class A felony (10 yrs), class B felonies (7 yrs). I am not sure about misdemeanor charges though. Contact the lawyer who represented you, your probation officer, or any criminal lawyer should be able to tell you. I’ve had 1 job since then and even worked with cash! BUT I knew the person who is head of their HR department, so she got me the job on good faith of peraonally knowing me. So I suggest that if a family member or someone you know really well, owns their own business or has the capability of getting you hired, try them first. I was laid off a couple years ago as the business I worked for closed. I decided to take time off to raise my two baby girls. Two years later, I am now here, looking for a decent job. I’m so insecure about my record and hope the next six years fly by so I can erase my record for good! Just sucks because my resume is GREAT. I’ve always advanced at my previous employers, have managerial experience, am proficient with computers, but hold this “theft by deception & forgery” charges. Not just “theft” but fricken “theft by DECEPTION” UGGGG. Best of luck to ya’ll!

    • Beth says:

      I too have a theft by deception charge that is over 10 yrs old (mo) and I cannot find a job. I have a college education. Is the by by deception considered worst than just theft?
