    Does FedEx or UPS hire felons?

    Does anyone know if FedEx or UPS will hire me if I have been convicted of felonies in the past?

    some companies do, some do not. with the ones that do, sometimes it depends on what the felony was and when it happened. i applied with fedex once, and i can not remember if they asked that question or not, even if they do, it really does not matter. when they run your DAC report, the criminal background history is part of that report and they will see it anyway.

    More then likely they won't. Some of the bottom feeders might not even touch a person with felonies. Especially multiple ones.

    I would think that they would not because of 'bonding'/security issues and being able to assure customers that their packages are in good hands. If you have shown poor judgement in the past there is a very good possibility of repeating the behavior.

    The best way to find out is to call and speak with some one in Human resources, NOT a recruiter.

    Would either company need a recruiter? I"m guessing both companies have a list of qualified applicants as they don't suffer from driver churn.

    I figured that they wouldn't just hoped to hear from someone they had hired with felonies. Thanks all

    Jeez thats a bit harsh. I would have to say that about 99 percent of the people on this forum dont fit that scale of addicts, criminals etc. I come from a home where both my parents are lawyers that support my decision to drive a truck. Granted some people Ive heard from here are starving and broke but they are still at their trucking jobs with pride. Not being critical here,,just stating a fact. Myself ,,i was drawn to it by sheer curiousity and luved it from day one.
    To the orginal poster here,,good luck in your search.

    There are some felonies that will prevent you from driving. On the rest of them, it really depends on each company, how long ago you had them, and what they were. Only way to find out is to ask, especially if they are old.
