What companies will hire someone with a 2yr old Terroristic Threats charge on their record?

Asked by ericmorris25 (92points) 1 month ago

I have a 3rd degree misdemeanor on my background. Who will hire someone who made some mistakes and is trying to rebuild? I start school on Wednesday and need to start saving so I can fix my credit because I will complete my bachelors in January of 2023.

Probably very few, to be honest. Not until you’ve got at least a few clean years behind and a good work and/or school record. Until then probably the best you’re going to get is a fast food or gas station job.

Look for small businesses. Sometimes they are willing to be more flexible on that kind of thing than a large company with rigid HR policies.

A third degree misdemeanor is not all that serious.

You probably went to jail and were charged with a misdemeanor in court and paid a fine maybe, At age 20, I was charged with a third degree misdemeanor for photographing an old historic school building, on school grounds without going to the office first, It was criminal trespass. Never showed up anywhere,

You arent required to disclose anything under a felony.

I’d look for a small, locally owned business (oil company, something like that).

@KNOWITALL: Some employers ask “have you ever been arrested?” and they ask for the details and outcome. I work in local government and the job application and civil service exam application ask in this way.

Your crime was a 3rd degree felony, not misdemeanor.

People might call that a Freudian Slip, a sign of denial.

Anyway, you may have a problem.

And I meant a ‘Class C’ misdemeanor. They say it isn’t serious, and I’ve never been asked if I had been arrested. But if any potential employer asks, technically, yes.

@jca2 I dont think I’ve ever been asked that, interesting. It doesnt exclude you fron public office so seems odd.

You can’t change the past, but you can start building your reputation back up by volunteering somewhere. Anything from working in a homeless shelter, or a food pantry to habitat for humanity would work. It’ll be pretty hard to do that during the lockdown, but sooner or later you will have a chance.
