Being a felon, and having looked for work a time or two, I can tell you that there are many places that dont check ur record, so dont let that keep you from applying. Ive been out almost eleven years and have never been out of work for longer than a couple of weeks. If u want work, you will find it.

Most people want their Obozo phone and live on food stamps. It is nice to see someone that has made mistakes and want to really work. Yes, if you want to work, there are jobs!! I own a business and can't find anyone that wants to work more than a week or two. Once they get their check they blow it on drugs and screwed up and never return.
wow

Yes try J.M.I as long as you don't mind hard work. You will do just fine. Decent pay scale and insurance. I would start there. Good Luck finding something & God bless

I think that is James Marine Inc. They beg for workers. Let them know your past/fess up and tell them you want to work and will be there on your scheduled shift.

Wow, someone really wanting to work and not draw food stamps. LOL

JMI is also known as James Marine. Its located on Clarks River road across the street from one of the owners brothers businesses and that is the bingo hall or "Jamestown Plaza". Or maybe even put an application in at Jamestown Plaza cause you never know. Try both places. Chances are you will score a job of some sort esp. at Jamestown. The man who owns that owns several other businesses in and out of town and can probably help you out.

Try Jamestown Plaza on Clarksriver road. They are usually looking for concession stand workers or clean up workers after bingo is over. No background or drug tests/checks.

I am a felon with a job. My income last year was 165794. So jobs are out there. I think we should get a few buses and fill them with people on welfare. Then we can drive the buses around and when we find an illegal immigrant working we take a welfare recipient of the bus, give him the job and put the illegal Mexican on the bus. We continue this until all welfare recipients are of the bus and the bus is full of illegals. Once the bus is full of illegals who shouldn't even be here much less working, we drove the bus to Mexico and let them out. Then we start the process over. In time this will solve the unemployment crisis that is facing American citizens and deport the illegals simultaneously.

Actually on the last two posts. I know someone who got out in 2010 and started putting in applications immediately, by December 2012 he had put in 500 applications. He quit keeping track of how many applications at 500, but has continued to put them in. He has yet to find a permanent job. No matter what these last two say, there is a stigma still attached.

The problem may not be that he is a felon. Yes, there definitely is a stigma attatched to being a felon but there are far too many felons working for that to be the only reason your friend doesnt have a job. I will repeat what I said in my earlier post, If you want work, you will find it.
