Hiring Horror Stories are scary but true tales sent to us from the interview trail.
John had just accepted a great job as a Territory Sales Manager with a Medical Device company. After only one week on the job, he disappeared. No phone calls, no emails, no returned messages.
A couple of weeks later, I found out that John was in jail awaiting trial for a domestic violence charge!
John claimed he had been falsely accused of assaulting his ex-wife in a bar. She was now dating a cop, who pulled some strings and kept John in jail without bail! He had been too embarrassed to call his new boss and explain where he was.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
If at all possible, try to have a handle on your domestic situation while you’re searching for a new job.
