    What happens when you go in the manager's office? What happens if you dont show up? Do they mail your check and separation letter? What happens if you come in street clothes?

    You come back and you get your termination papers, asked for your badge, and you're escorted out of the store. Or you are giving an opportunity to save yourself. They are required to mail out your last check within 48 hours. If you don't show up I think your termination papers say job abandonment.

    While that's not impossible, I meant they could start their job search five days earlier than normally.

    Its a scam though because if you read Frys employee handbook it states that Frys only verifies dates of employment and position...and even telling a another company your salary requires written permission from you. Not only that, but Frys forbids anyone from giving a reference to a former or current employee...only the Benefits dept at HQ is allowed to and its only dates and position. ITS ALL IN THE HANDBOOK on the page discussing references.

    That's both a state and federal restriction. I had an ex-supervisor trash-talk me on a reference call after leaving that company. The bummer for her, and the company, was that the call was handled by a third party firm, and was recorded and documented. Major bummer for her when the attorney played back the phone call. They settled quickly.

    Obiwan is right, but it doesnt always mean you Fry's kiddies are protected. A person can attest to you having been fired. And having been fired is shameful enough. I wouldn't hire anyone who'd been fired, myself. (Not including Laid off thats different entirely)Superhero!

    I think it was Lee Iacoca who said he wouldn't hire anyone that hadn't been fired. He didn't want a bunch of "yes-men" working for him. He wanted those that were willing to challenge the status quo.

    If you check Iacocca's background (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Iacocca), you really can't call him a "loser".

    And just look at Chrysler now. Can't defend being fired to me, I'm an anti authoritarian myself but I've always been able to deliver my unconventional ideas in a manner that was persuasive to others. If something was incredibly suffocating then I would quit.Superhero!

    True - Iacocca left Chrysler in 1992 and it was in great shape then.  
     
    I've worked for a couple of companies where new management totally mucked things up. In one company's case, their management literally drove it out of business. With my past employer, their only concern is making Wall Street happy. Nuts to providing service to the client or having a healthy work environment.  
     
    I do understand your concerns over hiring someone that's been fired. The one thing to keep in mind was why they were fired. If it was for insubordination, or illegal activities, that's one thing. If it was because they refused to be a party to unethical business practices and such, that's a totally different thing.

    "If it was because they refused to be a party to unethical business practices and such, that's a totally different thing. "  
     
    Then they should have quit. Or sued.  
    I was a refuser to be involved in unethical business practices but I ended up getting laid off, I had already been interviewing elsewhere. We actually all got a text message to tell us we were laid off, no money to pay us our checks, etc.  
     
    But never... fired.Superhero!

    I think it really depends upon why you were fired and how long ago it was. If you stole from the company I would really have a hard time justifying hiring you unless really seemed highly qualified for the position, a great deal of time had passed and your background check didn't show any recent problems with the law. On the other hand if you simply struggled with meeting sales goals I probably wouldn't care if it weren't a sales job. Provided you have ample successful experience in the job that you are applying for, I wouldn't care that you weren't good at a completely different job. Even then you do have to take consideration of other factors. Someone working at some failing company might have a hard time meeting sales goals due to reasons beyond their control.  
     
    The amount of time also makes a difference. If you have been successfully employed for the last 15 years I doubt that anyone is going to be care that you got fired from some college job when you were in your teens or your twenties unless you did something really bad like stealing from the company or some other crime.
