be up front with the interviewer. tell them the whole truth of how circumstances were just so stressful and that your prior employer did nothing to correct the situation. don't try to sugar-coat the former employers temperment and situation inside the salon. tell new employer that you are willing to work on a trial basis for 8 weeks. that way you can establish yourself as being willing to work situations out. i was in personnel, and as an interviewer, i prefer to hesr the truth upfont. it shows credability, honesty, and sencereity. i've hired more associates that way then seing that some people are trying to hide things. trust your gut instincts, believe in your self and the new job will be yours !!!
mebuchanan, please post answers as answers, not as comments. Seriously, how are people not getting this? You're like the hundredth person to do this, it's driving me nuts.
Oni, let's be honest - EVERYTHING drives you nuts. There seems to be very little that actually makes you happy
Well it's mainly stupidity that drives me nuts. I mean this site has a VERY simple interface. There's the question post, then there's the answer box for posting answers, and the comment box for anything you have to say that isn't an answer. So why are people posting answers in the comments? It's so dumb.
