    I was arrested for a misdemeanor assault, but the charges were dropped. Other than that I have no record. Will still be able to get retail jobs? Any Nt'erwith similar situation care to share how you did or didn't get hired because of it?

    Yeah but won't the arrest show on a background check?

    job apps ask if youve been convicted of a felony, not arrested.
