fired while in interview process

Microsoft loff
Nov 11 17 Comments

one of my friends at amazon was on pip. he has interviewed at one company and is in the process of setting up interview at another one (microsoft). he is hopeful to get an offer as the interview went well. however, today he was told that he is getting fired and today is his last day.
how does it affect the upcoming interview and the place from where he is hoping to get offer.
should he let both places know about getting terminated? will they not proceed with offer after hearing this?

  • He doesnโ€™t have to volunteer information, but he has to be truthful when asked.

      Will it look bad if it shows up in background check? The interviews are done and he is waiting for response!

      Itโ€™s not bad. Come up with a personal excuse to look like he quit . Like he wants to take more time to study for interviews. No time for that while working full time.

      He doesnโ€™t have to say he is fired. All he has do is say something like โ€œI left my current job to concentrate on preparation for interviews with positions I feel are more inline with my career goalsโ€. During the background check companies will only give start and end date plus job title from my understanding.

    You don't have to disclose any such information at any cost. Whether they ask you or not. If they ask you, let them know that you don't want to tell anything that would possibly influence their decision. Be bold! Everyone goes through this situation at least once in their lives.

    Like others mentioned you don't have to share any piece of info regarding what happened at previous job. Unless he got fired because of a misdeed which might come up in a background check there is nothing to be worried about.

    Was he fired before the pip ended? It's really rediculuous, if Amazon can do that.

    Don't feel obliged to call everybody and tell them. However, to all people asking from now on, tell the truth. And don't let them get the idea that you're still at Amazon. Update your resume.
