Temp Agencies That Hire Felons

Four Reasons Why Felons MUST Apply With Temp Agencies

  1. The first advantage of applying to temp agencies as a felon is that it allows you to view and apply for a large number of jobs at one time. The sheer quantity of jobs that you apply for increases your chances of finding a felon friendly employer.
  2. Each employer that the staffing agency is hiring for will have different policies regarding criminal records. The staffing agency will be able to help you sort through the list of employers quickly and let you know if any of them are felon friendly.
  3. Many, but not all employers that use staffing agencies need to fill a position quickly. They may be in such desperate need they will hire a felon.
  4. Many small businesses utilize staffing agencies and are less likely to discriminate against felons.

How Temp Agencies Work

Many temp agencies offer temporary and permanent jobs for felons in some cases. This means that you will go work for a company for a certain period of time, usually 90 days then will be hired on directly by whoever or whatever company you are working for. This often means that you will get a raise in pay and receive benefits.

This may not always be the case though, sometimes a job will truly be temporary and may last anywhere between one week and 6 months. Remember to check back often with the temp agency because they often post new jobs on a weekly basis or even sometimes a daily basis.

Small Local Temp Agencies Hire Felons

Remember to check out all of the small independently owned temp agencies in your local area. These can be just as good or even better than the larger temp service companies. Often times they deal with small business that don’t have blanket rules about hiring felons. This can work to your advantages because you may be able to talk with the owner directly and explain your situation and how valuable of an employee you can be.

Remember that when meeting face to face with an employer it is imperative that you communicate to him why and how you will be an outstanding employee.
