I am a person that went to apply for a job at FMC and the lady that works their told me that since I had been to prison that I didn't stand a chance. I know that I did the crime and I payed my my dues for doing wrong. I have the expierence, I have payed the price and all I want is to work and help support my family. I want to be a productive citizen and just help my family to have food,water and light. Were struggling right now, I have change my life style. It's nobody fault but mine, for doing the things that I did. Where can I go to apply and they won't discrimnate because of my past.

Weatherford did the same thing to my buddy. It's a shame how people treat you because of a mistake. Try Pioneer.

you should look into that, I no that a company cannot hire you because of your backround. If the lady told you in that manner, that's wrong. Look under texas commission. I hope I spelled that right. Good luck.

I like your honesty. You have accepted responsibility for your actions and want to be a productive part of society for yourself and your family. Apply in numerous places, you have to knock in 100 doors until one will let you in. Stay focused, positive , never get discouraged. Wish only the best for you!

yes i totally agree that the lady should of not said that, first of all unless she was the manager she has no business saying that to you. that is discrimination. if i was you i would call corporate office and talk to HR because that is so wrong in so many ways.
look up the number on computer and don't be afraid to call.

Thank you all. It's hard, My kids did not have a christmas. I could not afford them gifts.I just needed to let it out, I have nobody to talk to. All I really want is a chance to prove that I am a depedable person. Thank you all very much just to get some positive response.

All you see is Ray Lewis like if he is a saint, idolizing a man that was a suspect for murder. My friend here can't even get a job because of his drug conviction. Only in America.

Damn I guess half the town could file a lawsuit for being discriminated against in the work place for drug use.

First that lady was just being honest with you. And second what do you expect to get a great job after serving time. Come on get real?? The system has always been like that... No one cares that you ddid your time that's why as growing up you should had stayed out of trouble.

Not bein rude but blunt and honest. That's just the world turns!!

well that is not her part to say anything, just let him fill the app and turn in to the appropriate person. no one is perfect noone not even you and your family miss lori.... so its good being blunt but do it at it's appropriate place. at a company lets try to be a little more perfessional. not blunt!!!! your saying if a man goes in with a prosetic leg and ask for a app, and the stupid girl there tells him " no we can't hire you cause you only have one real leg" oh that's being blunt. but rude and its not her place to say a thing. just let the person fill out the app and turn it in.
