Fair Chance Companies

Fair Chance Companies is a list of companies that hire people with a criminal history on a case-by-case basis. Some are major corporations, while others are smaller local companies.

Scroll through the list below. You’ll need to look on a company’s website to find where they list their jobs. Look for a word like “Careers” or “Employment.”

Many websites will let you apply online. Since this can take an hour or so to do, first create a Word document where you can save everything as you write it. Then you can copy and paste without typing it all over again for each application.
