I have a outstanding warrant from 2002 that is holding me back. Long story short is I had too much fun at a Halloween party that ended in a brief stay at a hospital. Now I have a drug related charge on my background check. Funny thing is I wasn't even aware of speaking to law enforcement that night. I remember having heart problems and getting checked in and then waking in my bed the next morning like it was a bad nightmare.
You would be amazed how this impacted my jobs. I didn't even know of the warrant till 07 when it showed up on a background check. To correct the issue would take hiring a lawyer (can't afford) or traveling 1000 miles to turn myself in.
I hate the background check industry... I just recently found out that a charge that I had expunged was on the background check. There is little oversight in this industry and its up to you to correct. When you do correct something, it is only with that particular database, and each company has their own.
So moral is be a saint, as one stupid mistake will haunt you. Getting jobs and housing for me is a crapshoot. I am in your same boat, I have to make $120 before the first to retain my apt. I am registered with a temp agency, and have an interview tomorrow but that won't help me this month.
If the temp agency doesn't find me work, than I will be picking up cans... Wish me luck

I am a District Manager in Portland and am currently recruiting for a sales job within a department store chain...
Females work construction jobs. I've met female welders, drywall installers, forklift drivers, ect. Granted, most of them are masculine lesbians, but some of them are not. Still, no one can blame a woman for not being willing to work construction. The physical inferiority becomes much more obvious in such settings. At least y'all are more intelligent.

Construction jobs start at $15 an hour if you have experience. There are plenty of jobs out there. Prob not the kind of jobs you'd be interested in. Aim lower perhaps. No excuse to be out of work since february.
I AM A FEMALE!!!!! I don't know a damn thing about construction and all those job are taken by Mexicans and immigrants where i live. Dont' even start with me. NOT in the mood.
No excuse? are you kidding me? Do you know my life or what I have done or where I apply? I am not picky at all when it comes to work. I am sick of the PROCESS of it and how nobody contacts you. If it was so easy to find a job I would have had one but when you are one of 100 people applying for a position yea it's gets to be rough. It's so easy to judge someone when you aren't in THEIR SHOES. Clearly you lack any form of empathy.
Go away with your negative judgmental crap. This is the RANT forum. It's called a rant for a reason!

If the attitude you display here comes through in the interview process, no one is going to hire you. Why should they? You've got attitude pouring out of your pores. That spells "bad hire' to anyone trying to fill a position. They are looking for people who do not cause more problems than they solve.
TYPICAL reply from YOU! Why don't you go kick god damn rocks! I am so sick of YOUR negative attitude on here over the years. You are MEAN.
This is the RANT FORUM! Get over it and MOVE the hell on.
How I am on a rant forum and how I am in an interview are TWO different things. Take your CONSTANT negativity elsewhere.
