I'm looking for a bar position. But I do have about 10 years of construction experience. My dad owns a construction company. I ran a crew for him for a long time. The industry is just so volatile. I've gotten a few jobs over the last two years down here, but I always get laid off after the current project and/or immediate need is over. The really good busy companies all won't hire me because of my felonies. It's all meh.

I'd rather work behind the bar or as a server, it allows me the most flexibility to go back and finish my second degree.

Can you get to the city? Do you have a place to stay?

I can ask around but they would probably want you close by.

Yes, and maybe. I have a close friend in the city that might let me stay on his couch till I get enough money together for a place.

Awesome. If it helps, the guy I would be staying with is the Bar manager for Orton's Pool Room. They don't have any spots available though heh. I do have great Bar references, the latest being The Forest at Cape Fear National. Even though the circumstances of me leaving sucked, the GM told me he would give me a great work reference.

Not sure about NC but in California you can expunge if you didn't do prison time for it, completed probation without incident, it didnt involve children or domestic violence, and so long as you aren't currently on probation for something else. The guy I got my armed robbery with got his reduced to a misdemeanor and expunged, firearm rights restored and everything. fuging asshole.

armed robbery? damn dude.

get something flop that you can earn steady money and pad your savings and sock away some funds, see if you can pay off or get that stuff removed from your record.

otherwise, you go get your 2nd degree you still will have your record standing in your way.

just my two cyber coins.

Going to finish my CIS degree. I can get work with the felonies with it. I wanted to teach with my history degree, this was before I had such a record. It's hard to get a job as a teacher without a record currently, even worse with one.

Also, according to that new law that was linked a few pages back. I now have to wait 15 years after I get off probation in order to get it expunged. I'm still on probation for that bullshit charge I picked up in 2011. There was a thread about it here, if you recall. Waiting 15 years isn't really a viable option for me.

I'll be 45 before I can get a real job? No fuging thanks.

Now I'm stuck at the damn coast again, with no friends, no family, no job, no money, and less than a half a tank of gas

When you figure out a solution to this let me know. I'm in the same damn boat.

As the wise sage snoop dogg once said,"bitches ain't poo but hoes and tricks".

Sorry bout your luck hommie.
