I went back for my THIRD interview, had my drug test (don't use so it was clean), and they had to do a background check. I told her about the time in
02 that i was working for a guy seal coating and repoing cars, how he was paying cash then turned around and started doing checks. long story short,
year later, I get pulled over and got arrested. figured it was cuz i was driving on a suspended and had no insurance, right? Bad move, I know. It was
in 2002. I've since fixed that issue LONG ago, lol.
Anyway, turns out the guy was a criminal felon and had done time in prison on and off for almost 15 years and had written me and a few other workers
what turned out later to be forged checks as work checks!! So they (the cops et al) 'assumed' that all of us were in on this and tried to give us
felonies. I was ready to go into the Army and had my recruiter come in, got a letter of approval from a guy huge up in the army; the judge told me i
could sit in jail for another 6 months and have the felony dropped fully or get out right away so i could make my army leaving date and drop to a
misdemeanor. I took the misdemeanor cuz I figured I'd be in the Army til I retired. Was my plans. Then I got injured and had to get my DD214's but
that's another story...... Seriously, that was my only offense ever and to this day don't know why someone can get in trouble for cashing a bloody
work check *eyes roll*. Believe me if I knew he'd been a criminal felon, I NEVER would have worked with him.
Enter Walmart, 2011. I told her about the check and she was all shrugging saying, 'Wel tha'ts no big deal, bad check. Just put it down and it will be
fine. We just look for things like drug dealers, abusers, murderers, pedos, that kind of serious thing. besides, it may not be on your report any more
So I get a copy of my background. The ONLY thing on it was that suspended and no insurance thing. I was on cloud 9! Definitely have the job, 9.75/hr,
can FINALLY get off food stamps cuz I hate being on em when I can work.... blah blah.
They called today and told me I'm not hireable because of the background check. O_O
I've been crying since getting the news and just had to vent. So let me get this straight.
They won't hire murderers, rapists, drug dealers, abusers, pedopheliacs, armed robbers, and those with no insurance/suspended license from 2002.
all righty then. I understand I'm on the fbi most wanted list of terrible law breaking horrible disgusting menace to society people. I understand how
dangerous it is for a suspended license/no insurance driver from 2002 to work in walmart. I understand. I'm an evil bad disgusting horrible creature
who has no BUSINESS working in the public.
Then why does it hurt so badly? I can't get ahead for trying.
