Do you automatically get blacklisted/ no rehire if you're fired from a company due to performance?

    Why would you want to go back to a place where you were dragged out

      getting fired from a company "due to performance" doesn't necessarily mean you aren't good enough, or it isn't a good company for you overall. It mostly depends on your team and manager. So if your manager just doesn't like you and manages to get you fired, I don't think it necessarily means that you won't find another team in the same company where you'll be a rockstar.

      I agree, so why not find another team while you are there then instead or waiting to get fired.

      In that case, even more reason not to go back. The process put too much power in the hands if your manager and didn’t work to put you in a better team. Your manager should not be able to get people fired because of personal grudges.

    Laid off != fired. Laid off means it was the company’s fault (ran out of money, downsizing, restructuring, etc.). Fired means it was your fault (poor performance, bad behavior, etc.). If you were fired you aren’t getting rehired.

    Bring laid off is very different from being fired for performance

    Amazon marks as "not eligible for re hire" if put on pip/pivot/Dev list.
