  • fired from a job.

    Hey guys I just have a quick question.....about 9 years ago soon to be 10 I was fired from a department store for stealing... At the time I was 18years old not thinking about the consequences but anyway I was only terminated from the job have never been arrested or anything like that and I have never been in trouble or fired ever since then... Does anybody think that this will affect me in the least? I know a few officers who have said that they know guys who have done worse and still made it but I can't help but worry can somebody please let me know.

    The job is more picky with its candidates these days and you can't compare yourself with guys that got on years ago.

    Will it affect you? Most likely they'll want an explanation. Is it an immediate disqualification? Probably not depending on what you have accomplished since then.
    Good luck.

        Detailed credit earnings. If he was in high school during the job, he wouldn't have to put it down, but if it was after he graduated, he would.

          I was already out of high school and it was my second job which lasted only 6 months. So I will have to put it down which I plan to be honest about it was a mistake I made young

            Just tell them the truth. I had 30 jobs before I got on and some of them didn't end well for me. I was sick and I couldn't make it so I got fired. I was in high school and I had to go to summer school so I didn't bother showing up...so I got fired. Honesty is the best policy. It is what it is.
