Jobs for Felons

You have finally finished your sentence because of felony charges and are looking for a stable job to support yourself. The only problem is that felony charges can appear during a background check, and most companies will not take a risk in hiring you.

Fortunately, you don’t need to worry because there are jobs for felons in Rochester New York that you can try. If you’re not picky with the jobs, you won’t have a difficult time looking. Some companies are also willing to look past your record.

Jobs for Felons in Rochester New York

Felons are often discriminated against, especially when it comes to job hiring. Some job positions, though, are open for individuals like you. Some of them are:

1. Plumber and Home Inspector

Plumbers in New York require a license, so you need to pass the training and examination if you plan to pursue this career. You don’t need to worry because they will not prevent you from learning new skills.

You can also work as a home inspector since they don’t usually do background checks. The job is a bit complex, but the pay is very good.

2. Truck Driver

As long as you know how to drive trucks and have the license to do so, this is the best option for you. Most truck drivers work on their own or are paired with someone to help them during the trip. Thus, trucking companies are usually felon-friendly.

3. Restaurant Staff

Most restaurants and fast-food chains don’t perform background checks when hiring. It’s the same in Rochester, New York, as they only check if you’re eligible for the job. Even better, you can start immediately.

It is one of the most basic jobs for felons in Rochester New York that you can get. That said, you can start with it and improve your education to apply for a better job.

Bonus Tip: Apply To New Companies

If you have a degree, new companies won’t mind hiring you to do your job properly. Smaller companies won’t do any background checks, so you can apply there and try your luck.
