I believe I am extremely fortunate to not have the horror stories of some of you guys. When I got out of jail it took me 6 weeks to get a job. My new employer (current one) asked about the gap in my employment history during my interview with the operations manager. I was upfront with them. They told me they didnt care what I did, only what I could do for them in the future. Well skip forward 10 years and I am the Lead Electrical in the plant. I also am the troubleshooter for the testing department, and help develop new products. I never did tell people about my past , but I suspect people know. I never have been harrassed at work or anywhere else. I think that is unusual but I am happy.
