If you ever slip and do something illegal you really will pay for the rest of your life. I have a felony on my record. It is something I really regret doing. Today it hit home just how bad this is going to affect me. I have been sending out my resume to some local companies. I am looking for a job in the industry to supplement my school work. I just got back from an interview at one of the better companies in the area. They were offering me a position as an install helper. The company does alot of change outs, commercial and refrigeration work. They have great benifits and a good internal promotion program. The inteviewer told me that by the end of the year I could have my own truck. Everything was going great I had the feeling that the job was mine and we just had to do the formalities of filling out the paper work. Then we got to the background check. I told him that they will find something there. I was honest about it. But the whole interview changed right then. I can understand their position. It is just disheartening to have things going so great and then go down the toilet. I havn't been turned down yet, but I didn't leave with a good feeling. So guys take my situation as a lesson a dumba$$ move that takes a couple minutes can haunt you for a long, long time. I guess the positive side of this is that someone liked my resume enough to offer me a job.
