Not really. As long as you have a clean criminal record, decent non-suspicious credit, and drivers license there are a number of DFC positions ranging from front desk to director. No degree necessary with transferable work experience for lower end positions

Unemployed

As a senior I would like some advise as to how I can improve my #jobsearch and interview questions without the old age discrimination it happens more frequently than anyone can imagine how can I improve my faith in the work force? I haven't worked for A long time Yet I emphasize my skills?

Background Checks VS Pending Charges

#backgroundcheck #jobsearch #advice #workfromhome #coronavirus #healthcare #customerservice

I have been in the medical field for the last 20 years. Medical Records/HIT, Health Department Clerk, Home Health Receptionist and Data Entry, Out Patient Image Scheduling for a health network that included 5 area hospitals, and of course, all included Customer Service Excellence. With in the last year I had even begun to get things together to further my education with a BS in Health Science. However, in June of 2020, a series of unfortunate events began. In June, my marriage of 20 years ended after my husband abandoned my son and I. In September, my employment ended. Fought for unemployment and marriage for the next several months. Was awarded unemployment finally mid-late November but only discovered that I knew nothing about the man I married instead. Still we continued to be blessed thru the holidays and into the Spring of 2021. March of 2021 I was served with an Emergency Protective Order filed by the one who left my son and I. Unemployment ended in June and still going to court for PO because the "unknown" is battling charges of Felony Embezzlement from the previous employer he abandoned along with us when he moved over 800 miles away, just to put things in perspective. My son is now 18 and a senior in high school. The youngest of 6, abandoned and hurt, watching me barely hang on while I try my best to absorb as much of the missing link's contributions as I could. We would argue but never anything physical. I lost my s#it somedays, if I am being honest, but never warranted getting arrested on July 3rd for a domestic A & B, 1st offense, claimed by my son. Stayed incarcerated until July 6th and was released to an organization who would oversee my return for future court dates, got my ankle bracelet for assurance that I would not contact the "unknown" via electronic communication in any form. I am being evicted now, court is on July 12th. Was late due to lack of information and he won by default. I am looking for a place to go now, packing my stuff, got my ankle monitor on and charged. Although I can not say for certain how the monitor was to keep me from "digitally stalking" the ex, I refrained from any communication, as requested. It was not difficult. July 20th, in the middle of packing, I think I have a place to go, police beat on the door and yell "Police!! COMPLIANCE CHECK" so, of course I open the door. Was asked to get all components for bracelet and then told me to turn around, i was being arrested for stalking, a Felony charge. Cut the bracelet off and BAM......first bond reinstated @ $5000 and new bond $5000. So I sit for almost a month before I am released on August 13th thanks to a co-signer and a surety bond payment of $1000. I had begun to deliver for a grocery shop and deliver outfit when I was informed by email on August 9th that I had violated a term of their platform and could no longer deliver for them. Never was specifically told exactly what I violated....so I quit fighting it. Now I am at a family members with what was saved by friends and family of my personals retrieved from the home I had been evicted from. I worked for Instacart before the background report proved I wasn't lying when they asked what would come back in it, roughly August to beginning of October. Then waitressed for about a month, did a little DoorDash when transmission in my vehicle decided to go out. Have had a slew of interviews, hopes up, then dashed. Quit looking for medical, or office, so I tried the warehouse worker route. Offered and accepted employment with 2 major distribution companies in my area, as a driver and 2 warehouse positions. Met all criteria until the background was complete. 2 pending charges now. Assault and Battery, Dom, 1st offense and a Felony stalking charge which has been reduced to a misdemeanor. Now it is November 15th and I get a new background report that was requested by DoorDash and figure i already know what is on it but decide to open anyway to a new charge for Identity Theft, a Felony, that the "unknown" I am still married to, had a family with, and never really even knew, is now claiming. NOW I am an abandoned wife and mother of 4, grandmother to 3, a 44 year old, unemployed, flat busted, no vehicle having lady who just 6 months prior had a clean background, who has decided that my next hope is the burger drive-in a little more than a mile from where I am staying. I was informed that due to my being honest, and it may or may not have come up in whatever they run for I-9 background- they couldn't hire me at this time. I have hired an attorney who expects a payment towards his retainer once a month, shelled out insane bail fees that include the current weekly payment installment I am already a week behind on, waste valuable time and resources going to every continued court date only to be told to return the next month and do it all over again with having no idea what is even next. I will have vehicle repairs coming due with in the next week, just trying to make it and simply can not. I understand a background check for the medical field if it is hands on patient care, but no longer understand why a background would need to be completed for an applicant applying to work from home with no requirements to come into a physical location where patients may be. I've applied and have had several interviews for customer service alone or data entry jobs from home that I can't land due to my background. What happened to innocent until proven guilty and look what it does to someone who will prove their innocence in 2 of the charges with out a date leaving the stalking allegation to be reduced to a PO violation at most due to a lack of understanding at best. Especially to the grocery delivery company who let me go while I was in jail due to what could have only been what came up as pending on a background they ran. Why not allow that person to continue to work until they have been resolved and go from there? And then the next company I was honest about what would come up on report, they allowed me to work for 2 months before the report came back and confirmed what I said. You felt your customers were safe even though I had told you what would come up, and now they're not? I have a lot of questions, thoughts and concerns. I was betrayed, lost, lonely and on my way to bed when I was taken from my home and arrested for something I did not do. I didn't even know it could happen like that. I would have never imagined this is where I'd be at the age of 44. So many job openings you keep hearing about and all the people who don't seem to want to work and nothing about the ones that do and just simply cannot, can't be productive, can't pay the costs that the legal system hastily places on the backs of those of us with the burden of proving we are innocent and trying to live as a person who has already been found guilty at the same time. Where do we go to apply for the jobs that no one else wants? I know if I can hang on long enough......the DA will decide at some point to quit entertaining his frivolous accusations and I can get back to some sort of a life again, not even sure what normal is, was, anymore. What are your thoughts? if you made it here I mean....lol What would you do, if you were broke and completely tapped with no more resources? I am pretty desperate at this point so sympathy, keeping my chin up, along with having any morals or values, are no longer an option, or so it seems. Thanks for reading if nothing else. Ruby

Support Ban The Box

I am 54 years old, have a criminal record within 7 years. Sherwin Williams in Moody Al. gave me a job offer with a start date. Alabama is one of 13 states that have not implemented the "Ban the Box¨ law preventing potential employers from inquiring prior criminal history if it is not sexual or violent in nature.My backround came back and squashed my hopes. I am rehabilitated, drugfree and have a very strong work ethic. I see that they are still struggling to fill the position. The store manager was in favor of my hire, however it was out of his hands as hiring decisions are determined from within HR. Such a waste and disappointment! # #jobsearch
