Hello, I am sure this has been asked before but every situation is different. Here is my story. When I was 19 years old, I was with a friend that tried to steal an iPhone case(I know, stupid!). Well, he got caught and I was with him and was questioned by police if I knew my friend was trying to steal it. I said yes because I am an honest person(believe it or not lol) and was charged with the same crime, “Petty Theft”. Well, I am now 32 years old and have a bachelors degree, have held multiple manager positions of stores and branches, have worked at a bank dealing with loads of money and social security numbers when I worked in the loans department and have also worked as a gymnastics coach. I’ve NEVER been fired and have always proved that I am a trustworthy, hard working employee. Getting a job has never been an issue for me. My record has never been a problem because I have always took responsibility for my actions and never blamed anyone. I’ve also shown that my past mistake isn’t who I am today. I didn’t physically steal it but me knowing about it was just as bad so that is why I admitted to that officer that I knew it was being stolen.
Well, I am now married, have two baby girls, and have always wanted to be an airline pilot but never pursued it. I am now thinking about pursuing it. My question is, will I be denied or have a hard time landing an airline pilot job after I complete all the training? And lastly, am I too old to start this process?
Thank you so much! I really appreciate your time and help!
