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.


Why temp agencies are a good choice for felons

Some of the advantages of temp agencies for felons is that it allows you to view and apply for a large number of jobs at one time. The sheer quantity of jobs that you apply for increases your chances of finding a felon friendly employer.

Another good thing is that most agencies have a very wide array of work and companies they can offer to you. Some industries have a zero tolerance policy for felons while other industries like construction are much more apt to hire a felon.


Small local temp services hire felons

Remember to check out all of the small independently owned temp agencies in your local area. These can be just as good or even better than the larger temp service companies. Often times they deal with small business that don’t have blanket rules about hiring felons. This can work to your advantages because you may be able to talk with the owner directly and explain your situation and how valuable of a employee you can be.

Remember that when meeting face to face with an employer it is imperative that you communicate to him why and how you will be an outstanding employee.

  1. JG Staffing, Glendale Az hires felons. They staff the Glendale dump and recycling centers. It’s nasty but it’s a job. Let’s see how many of you really, really want to work.

  2. I live in plainfield,nj I have a PTI for petty theft ( I had a horrible P.D representing me). I am applying everywhere I need help I ll take anything. please advise me

  3. I also can’t find anyone to hire me. I was convicted in 2014 of Malicious wounding and Attempted as well. The sad thing about the whole thing is that I was lied on and they got away with ruining my life and any chance of taking care of myself. I have never been in trouble with the law before that and I am college educated. At 30 my life is over before it even started. This is my last attempt to find work, after this i am giving up.

  4. I moved to Durham,NC from Alabama to try an get a new start. I’ve applied to every job I want an don’t want. I have been turned down by all of them an all the temp services. I paid my debt to society an there still locking me up mentally. Where can I get some help.

    1. There is a temp agency designed to help felons join the workforce in the Durham, NC area.
      The owner of the agency is Brian Hatch. I don’t know what he calls his company.

  5. I live in California. I was set up in 1991 as a sex offender. I have an attorney who is willing to have my charges expunged as soon as I can afford it. However I am unable to get anyone to hire me. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can go. I`ve gone to the unemployment office. As well as to Select Staffing, Labor Ready. I am trying desperate for employment. Good Luck.

  6. Most of these temp services listed will not hire a felon. I have applied to Kelly, manpower etc. Most names on that list.

  7. Kelly Services (and Remedy) have refused to hire me because of a petit-theft conviction 7 years ago, and an “adjudication withheld/not guilty” charge in 2011 for a 3rd degree felony. I call the temp agencies in advance before I even begin applying and straight up ask them what they are looking for in a background check- I have had no luck yet with Kelly services and any other temp agency that I have seen hiring in my area (in Florida)…
    usually I don’t have experience with the jobs that they may overlook unfortunately, as most of my experience is in customer service.

  8. Hi!
    Interesting the comments. I cop out to a second degree felony. No P.O. I also have a misdemeanor. DUI first time. No driver’s license yet. The real problem is my age. I’m 66 years old. I was a defense contractor. Plus the companies facility security officer.

    If it’s not the felony or the lack of drivers license for my age one get to me. I have out about a hundred and fifty applications. But I am still on Truckin.

    Best of luck to you all!
