Recent Experiences With Jobs Knowing My Felony And They Will Still Interview.

I have been job searching for over a month now. I finally got two interviews set up. I came right out and asked if a felony of vehicular assault will disqualify me from the job opportunity because I don't want to waste time if I won't even qualify for the position. They both informed me that they go by case by case situations involving that type of felony and I will not immediately be disqualified. One job is AFLAC, selling insurance and the other is a counselor attendant trainee with develpmentally disabled adults. I was scared to inform anybody of my record but now I am determined to not run away and hide from it anymore. It is what it is and I can't change the past. I am surprised at the reactions from others not being so judgmental so far. I hope I can help other people struggling with a felony looking for work as well. It's important for people struggling in a situation to reach out to others who struggle with the same or similar situation.
