Can I be fired even if I told the company of a felony conviction on my application?

I was hired for a job as a assistant, hourly employee. On my application and when I was hired, I discussed and informed my manager that I have a Felony Conviction. Since then, I have been promoted to a management position, where I work in an area direclty related to my prior conviction. Although I have completly changed my life around, can they fire me at any point for having a conviction? Or since I already discussed this with them, am I safe?

As you have already inform them about your Felony conviction and they have promoted you to management position.

Hope for the best.

As above, you're 100% safe. You mentioned it in your original application and as you haven't lied at all, there is nothing they can do. They can, however, approach you about it if they wish but as for being fired, this shouldn't happen. Congratulations on your promotion, by the way!

If you live in an employment at will state, which you almost surely do if you're in the US, then you can be fired at any time, for pretty much any reason or for no reason. But why are you worried?
