    Since it is now illegal to ask an applicant if he/she has a felony conviction record ( thanks Obama) We can expect much, much more of this.

      I believe you have misunderstood what Obama did. Obama signed an executive order instructing GOVERNMENT agencies not to ask about criminal convictions on the initial application. The problem was if an agency received 200 applications the first thing they would do is throw out any application that “yes” had been marked on the conviction portion just to weed out some of the applications. In essence a 20 year old conviction for possession of marijuana could keep the most qualified person from getting the job.

      Applicants are still asked about convictions and background checks are still performed – It’s just further on in the application process. It allows the person’s qualifications become known and an employer to weigh the conviction against the person’s qualifications.

      In addition Obama’s order only applies to government agencies. UPS isn’t a government agency. In essence this has absolutely nothing to do with Obama.

        Thank you Michael for knowing the facts before typing the falsehoods. And…………………….I so agree with what Obama did. People mess up, make mistakes, make bad decisions… those same people most of the time learn from those mess ups, mistakes, and bad decisions and go on to live a prosperous life by hard work and pure dedication to their jobs, their families, their selves. People should be considered for their intelligence, abilities, and performance rather than just thrown to the wayside like trash. After so many “sorry, we gave that job to someone else” decisions being heard I am sure that it may take a toll on ones own thoughts of self worth. Making the temptation to “go back there” seem like the only thing they are capable of, can do right.
        Every person has a different personality, either by a little or a lot….. everyone is who they are…. no two people handle situations the same. We need to give more hope, help, confidence, and feelings of self worth to others. We need more of the old school way…”TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED”. Not a very hard request to be asked……
