In 1998 I got a misdemeanor charge for less than an ounce of weed in Georgia. I now live in New York and would like to relocate back to Ga. If there is anyone from GA, who can tell me how long does a misdemeanor charge stay on you record in GA. I have never been in trouble before or after this arrest.
When applying for positions that ask this question, it is often left with 2 options to choose from. Yes or No. What I really want to put, if the option were available, in a comment box is; "What are your passing qualifications?" Or is it just assumed that it must be "free and clear" of anything current? Does it include past/expunged? I am ok with the question "have you ever been convicted of a felony?" because that is a definite "NO". I have been instructed by several friends and past colleagues to just answer "yes" instead. Is that frowned upon later? #jobsearch #advice #felony #wordsofadvice
why wont Walmart hire me after everything went through except the background part that happen 15 yrs or longer and then when I apply again and again they don't respond or call back.
I have a class B felony that can't be expunged or anything like that. It was in 1986. Since then, I have NEVER been in any kind of trouble. I'm 55 years old, and a respectable member of society. I just interviewed and was offered a job with a convenience store. I was sent an e-mail for the background check, and I was denied. My husband told me I should lie about it and hope they don't go back more than 7 to 10 years. I told him that I can't and I have to be honest, but...honesty is keeping me from a decent (somewhat) job. What is the opinon? If I get a job and they find the felony...I get fired. If I'm honest about the felony...I get no job...what do I do??? #advice #felony #jobsearch #interview
