Thanks for checking out our list of jobs for felons / felon friendly employment. Also, 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.

There is a book called Jails to Jobs: Seven Steps to Becoming Employed by Mark Drevno that may be helpful as well. If you have a few bucks to spare, it’s worth picking up.

We recommend checking out Beyonds Career Network 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.

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

Our local jobs page is now up and ready for traffic. Give it a try! Click here to go to the local jobs page, and start finding job listings right near you.

    Mens Wearhouse doesn’t do background checks simply because the CEO had a somewhat rough past so he understands.

  2. Convicted felon in Ohio

    Hello. I was arrested one year ago for theft from my employer. This was a white collar crime, I spent 45 days in jail, made complete restitution and am completing 200 hours of community service and 3 years of probation.

    But what I want to share is that I have spent the last 2 months aggressively applying for jobs every day. Lots of interviews followed by rejection when I brought up my past. But today I GOT A JOB!! It is a mid size company and when I told them about my past they said that they liked me, appreciated my honesty and were not going to do there usual background check and would like to be the company that offers me a second chance. I start tomorrow!!

    The list of companies on this website is a great place to start. But my success came from looking at Craigslist morning, noon and night.

    I am writing this for what I hope will be encouragement for anyone who reads it. Hold your head up, we made a mistake, ours were just a little bigger than most and we can get through this!!

    I must admit I have been blessed!
    I went back to school when I got out in 1999. I worked for the same company after I got out and started a new job as of 4 months ago!
    It has been 32 years since I robbed those banks!
    I see Employers looking at us differently now because a large number of us made a commitment inside to do a great job and maybe it will help the other Brothers and Sisters down the road when they get out!
    Be honest, show great integrity and communicate well!
    Never give up and take your eyes off of being the best you can be!!!

    Dillard’s is another job that is offender friendly. I work there now and we have several offenders work for us.
