As you most likely already know it can be really tough to find a job as a felon in today’s world. Don’t lose hope though because there are companies out there that will hire you. In the below article we will answer the question does UPS hire felons.
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.Sponsored Links
