You ae being incredibly pessimistic.
Yes your conditions arent favorable, but you can still get a job if you tried.
It will depend on how you come across, how you look etc.
If you are someone who is scared crapless you will already be sabotaging yourself.. Just relax.
You will do alot better if you relax.
You may be able to make up past employment or references. Lots of people used to do this.
You may be in a spot where you have to leave your low confidence at home.
You are also going to hear alot of pessimistic on the internet about your spot when you may do better IRL.
In the past alot of minimum wage places dont even check on your employment history or references.
Ive been hired on spot a number of times.
I also have 2 misdemeanors, but they are petty.. ive never been called on it.
Do you honestly think most people in fast food live wholesome lives?
This is a conspiracy site.. Most people are incredibly pessimistic about such things.. but if you pay attention, you realize that alot of what is said
is blown out of proportion.
I my self have been in VERY many situations where the advice on the internet seemed set in stone, they insisted "but no, you absolutely must do this
or else die." but then i go into those situations with maximum fear and learn it is NOTHING like that, much more casual etc.
