Those Lies Will Always Come Back To Bite You

, , , , , | Working | December 13, 2021

About halfway through a job interview, I had some major red flags come up about the company. They had no order book, no future plans, and nothing owned by the company. The role I was applying for seemed completely hashed together and they couldn’t really tell me what I would be doing.

They really tried hard to convince me that this was a good move and promised that the company was about to take off. They had new contracts lined up and told me that I would have a good future. No risk at all.

But I wasn’t sure, and I didn’t want to leave a good job based only on some promises.

A few months later, my boss asked the team if anyone knew [Interviewer] to give a reference. I said I recognised the name from somewhere, and he shared the CV with me.

I was surprised that it was one of the guys that interviewed me. 

Me: “Did he say why he was leaving his current job?”

Manager: “The company is closing, six months tops. Why?”

Me: “Not sure he has the integrity to work here.”

Manager: “Care to elaborate?”

Me: “I met him once. He lied through his teeth to try to get me to leave here.”

Manager: “Fair enough. That’s a no, then.”

He didn’t get the job.
