Does UPS Hire Felons?

A few points to keep in mind when you are applying for jobs, this includes UPS and other companies. A company may employ a person with a felony but that will not hire everyone that has a felony. UPS will take into account many factors when considering you for a job/employment.

 

 

 

A few of these factors may include:

  • Length of time since release from prison or time since conviction
  • Type of felony conviction or specific charges
  • If you have multiple felonies

 

While we were researching information about UPS we did uncover some some interesting information about UPS and their practices regarding their hiring process.

One source we found had this to say about UPS and felons:

“They hired me as a felon (grand theft) and gave me full time benefits and everything I could ever ask for. Amazing…. ”

Another source we found also was very encouraging and said:

 

“When I was working as a PO [Parole Officer] in Indianapolis I often referred my guys there and they usually hired them. It may be part-time, but they pay pretty good (it’s warehouse work) and have a great tuition repayment plan. It seemed like they were always hiring because it was hard, physical work and a lot of people didn’t stay very long. So give that a shot.”

We also spoke with a UPS company representative and was told that they do not have a blanket policy against hiring felons and that each applicant will be considered on a case by case basis. This is great news for felons.

If you are a convicted felon applying for a job at UPS you will most likely have the best luck by applying for part time warehouse positions. This is a labor intensive job that will be nothing but hard work day in and day out. Remember though you will be getting your foot in the door and this will lead you to much better positions and possibly into management.

  1. Well ive applyed at UPS for the past 4 years, i do have a felony from when i was 18 and its been 5 or 6 years now since ive been off parole and doing good no other major things on my record , and now i even have delivery experience,so if they call me on monday to work means they hire felons with experience, if not guess i have to wait till its 10 years old to work for my dream company

    1. That’s not true i haven’t been to jail in 14 years and UPS did not hire me…I felt it wasn’t right at all knowing i haven’t been to jail in 14 years.

  2. Will ups hire u if u are guilty of possession of a finance device ( a gift card ) someone sold me a bogus gift card and I got caught with it at a store

  3. Nope didn’t hire me.i have a undisputed class 6 felony for possession of marijuana in 2005.i did my time etc,etc.i have over a year experience being a package handler.i went to interview and could tell he wasn’t going to hire me.this was the third time I tried.but as soon as they need holiday help for drivers I am sure I will get a call.i did holiday help as a driver helper twice.guess I am good enough for seasonal but not warehouse.i will decline if they call me this year.

  4. I HAD A CONVICTION AND A FELONY 20 YEARS AGO. MY STEP MOM ACCUSED ME OF MOLESTING HER DAUGHTER . MY DAD WAS ASKING HER FOR A DIVORCE AND THIS IS WHY SHE HURT ME AND BECAUSE SHE CAME ON TO ME WHILE I WAS IN THE SHOWER SHE WALKED IN AND TOOK HER TOP OFF I WAS ONLY 15. THIS HAS CAUSED ME SO MUCH TROUBLE AND ANGUISH. TO BE CHARGED WITH A SEX OFFENSE. HOWEVER, I WENT ON WITH MY LIFE I WAS IN THE NAVY FOR 9 YEARS . AFTER THE SERVICE I HAVE ONLY HAD TEMP WAREHOUSE JOBS BUT I LOVE THE MANUAL WORK. IT KEEPS ME IN SHAPE AND THE DAY GOES BY FAST. I HAD TO START OUT WITH UPS AS A PART TIME TEMP DURING HOLIDAY SEASON AND IT TOOK 3 YEARS TO GET A FULL TIME POSITION. AMAZON ALSO HIRED ME. I AM NOT A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER. KEEP TRYING AND INSTEAD OF APPLING FO JOBS HANDLING MONEY APPLY FOR WAREHOUSE JOBS AND KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND WORK HARD AND BE ON TIME AND BE CHEERFUL AND UPS WILL GIVE YOU A CHANCE. I WORKED PRIOR FOR AMAZON FOR YEARS AND WOULD GET LAID OFF BUT THEY ALWAYS HIRED ME BACK IN 2 MONTHS. HANG IN THERE. IT DOES GET BETTER BUT WE ARE UNDER A LOT OF XTRA PRESSURE AND HAVE TO TRY HARDER BUT IT IS WORTH IT. BE SOMEONE WHO EMPLOYERS CAN FORGIVE AND FORGET. WHEN THEY GIVE YOU A CHANCE DO NOT BLOW IT. STAY CLEAN AND STAY STRAIGHT. A GOOD JOB IS WORTH IT.
