How does one go about finding a job with a felony conviction.?

I'm having a hard time finding a job even at tempoary agencies with my felony conviction. Is there any company in San Antonio Texas that hire ex felons? I'm having a hard time finding employment in San Antonio, Texas. I'm being honest and telling them of my felony convection on my job application. I can't even find work at tempoary agencies.
