Quick Question for Everyone

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

So I just had a quick question. Let's say you were fired form your last job. But your honest and fully disclose it in the application package. Will you run into any problems? Here's my situation: at my last job they were not happy with my performance. So while I was not technically "fired" they did strongly encourage me to quit. I'm not sure if that counts as being fired, but I don't want to run into any problems should the MTA contact my previous employer. Is it best to play it safe and just say I was fired?

 

Thanks in advance!

If you quit, you were not fired. If you say you were fired, that would be incorrect, so why bother looking for trouble? If you are supposed to write a reason why you left, then you can go into the details.

ok, thanks. It's just that I sometimes see applications that ask whether you were fired or "forced to resign under pressure." I have never seen the MTA application so I have no clue what they ask.

So as long as I am 100% honest when I fill out my application and tell the that I was asked to resign, being asked to resign from my last job won't disqualify me, right?

Put it this way Donald, there are people working for the MTA who have been

fired before and still got hired. Andrew who is a T/O said that he was fired twice

which he put down on his paperwork and still got hired.

 

It might not look good, but as long as your honest you shouldn't have any

problems. If they catch you lying about anything you will be history.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Also, technically I was not fired, so if they ask me if I was fired, I could answer "no."

Right, but you still have to write down the reason for leaving.
