How temp agencies work
Many temp agencies offer temporary to permanent jobs for felons in some cases. This means that you will go work for a company for a certain period of time, usually 90 days then will be hired on directly by whoever or whatever company you are working for. This often means that you will get a raise in pay and receive benefits.
This may not always be the case though, sometimes a job will truly be temporary and may last anywhere between one week and 6 months. Remember to check back often with temp agencies because they often post new jobs on a weekly basis or even sometimes a daily basis.
