Not a very good one. Employers are hesitant to hire convicted felons because of concerns about reliability and honesty. In exchange for being willing to hire a convicted felon, employers expect to pay less. After getting out of prison, felons continue to pay for their crime. On the one hand it's unfortunate for the Ex-Con, but on the other hand you can't blame the employer for wanting something for being willing to take the risk. The person would be unable to obtain a position in law enforcement, security agencies (such as Brinks), most financial institutions, and those professions similar. For the most part in private business it is up to the person who decides who should be hired. It might also depend upon the terms of the person's release or probation, for instance a felony that involved a crime against a minor would negate any type of employment relating to or being in the proximity of children. Several times courts have found hotel or restaurant employers liable when employees with prior convictions commited a crime against a customer or co-worker, so they will NEVER hire someone with a felony conviction. Hospitals also hesitate.

depends mainly on the business owner. Whether or not he/she wants to take a chance with that person.

It probably depends on WHAT kind of job you are trying to get. It is doubtful that any job involving the "public trust" would be open to you - on the other hand a job with the roads and highways department (for instance) could be possible. It all depends on the job.

It depends on what type of job you are applying for. If it's a childcare job, then probably not.

It all depends on the nature of the felony.most places WILL NOT hire anyone with a felony.some places wont hire you with certain types of felonies.for example: say you have a felony drug charge, you would never be able to get a job in a place that distributes over the counter medications.

Felony convictions don't "go away". You cannot be discriminated against for having a felony on your record for "most jobs".
