    I agree Beverley. After sitting on the other side of the table for years, it never ceased to amaze me how people were willing to “slag off” at a previous boss – not realising that we look for things such as loyalty and trust.

    Being negative about a past boss shows you don’t have these traits – and also shows you are indiscreet and don’t have good judgement about who to share your war stories with. It makes us wonder how you will represent our company if you worked with us.

      Great comments from the other side of the desk, Ingrid. It can be a small world and it is always wise advice not to criticize others or burn your bridges too quickly.
