My son was offered a job at Publix pending a background check. We felt it all would be fine since he only had one thing on his record from when he took our car without our permission for a few hours and we had him arrested, then did not finish his community service. Since the web site said they even hired non-aggressive felons and this was a misdemeanor at most we felt pretty good. Today we found out he did not get the job due to the background check. I called an attorney that others here at work have used for their sons - each with DUI's. He is out of town today but the secretary looked up my son's record. She saw an active warrant from 2015 from when my son got into a text fight with his ex girlfriend. He threatened to "kill" her but as he said he didn't really mean it. People say it all the time mom....etc. etc. He is smart but dumb at the same time. You can't put anything like that in writing!! He was drinking at the time. Also, we were told this was dropped because we had tried to have the local police pick him up at one time for that warrant when he was actively using. They said there was NO warrant. We even had them call us back etc. Son then said his ex had dropped the charges. So we all forgot about it. We're sure that is what it was. I am waiting for the attorney to call me back next week to see what can be done. In the meantime, son has to find a job that does not do background checks. I feel like I got punched in the stomach. Son sounded all sad and husband said we are as sad as you.
