A novel way to screen using the felony box

Summary:
A student told me how his company used the felony box (previous posts) to screen out bad applicants Being a felon did not rule you out from being hired to work for my company.  Instead, we used the box to see if the job applicant was truthful about their felony past.  We did not hire those who (i) had a felony record and didn’t disclose it; or (ii) lied when filling out the explanation of the charges.   However, we did hire those who disclosed truthfully (except for certain crimes), and found them to be good employees.
