Hello, I have a friend who has a felony record. He has turned his life around and just needs a second chance in life. He wants to move to the Dallas area but wants to work. Are there any people who will hire him with a record, he's very hard working. He does Forklifting Operator jobs, Shipping and receiving, Quality Control, Inspector, and Order Selector. Any advice on who to contact would be greatly appreciated. Thanks..

He can log in and look for jobs that suit him.

Good luck.

Oh, so he was serious? Lol, I thought he was joking, sorry for the misunderstanding. Thank you both for your help, I will let him know. I believe in second chances. Thanks again.

Might also check with The Salvation Army to see if they have any job programs. I know their mission is to help people fix other problems in their lives (which I'm not insinuating your friend has...) and then get them back on their feet with work.

If they have a setup for people needing a help up, perhaps they can at least direct your friend in the right direction.

I would also consider small family owned companies. They are often more likely to take chances on people, particularly if his felony is non violent.

Also try Tom Thumb. They used to hire ex-felons depending on the crime, and job applied for.
