A question to ponder over right?If you're in Management interviewing applicants. Think about what good reviews can tell you about an applicant has a job for a while.
As a business owner, longevity at a company is definitely something I would consider to be a positive attribute. However, if an applicant had multiple jobs and different companies that could also be a positive attribute. For example, maybe the applicant switched companies to take on a position with more responsibility that their previous employer couldn't offer. Gaining insight into an applicant's career path would be something I'd be eager to learn. You can see from my previous work experience I've worked for a lot of different companies. In some cases I was forced to seek new employment because the current company I was working for went out of business! I understand that business turnover is a real thing especially in the retail industry during today's climate.
Yes the 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 year pin or gold watch pen plaque trophy or broach or Monogramed whatever at the end can be nice at the awards banquet to the expletive's that think they are running the show no more than you do.
This video will share with you five things you should never say in a job interview. You must be careful in a job interview to make sure you know what to say and what to avoid saying. Most people screw up their interviews by blurting out things they never should say and ruin their chances for moving farther in the interview process.
Some of the examples I used in this video or things I say might not be true for you, so if they are not true for you, I'm not telling you to lie. I want you to be truthful and at the same time, I don't want you to stick your foot in your mouth.
I always suggest avoiding saying negative things about your past boss or company. Even if your boss was terrible, I think it's better to find one honest, true and GOOD thing you can say about him/her.
If you walk into an interview and start trash-talking your boss, your interviewer might think that the problem is with you and not your boss. but like I said, even the worst people usually have one kind thing you can say about them.
Don't talk badly about your company. Don’t talk bad about the people. Don't say that you didn't like working there; no matter how it comes up.
A lot of candidates go in and they're so desperate to work at a job they'll say, “I'll do anything. It doesn't matter what it is; I'll do anything.” Now, these are usually people who are not employed right now (maybe they've been out of work for six to nine months, maybe even two years) and they are desperate for a job and they will do anything.

With difficult customers, I try to look at the situation like a crossword puzzle. There's a solution and it's my job to find it. If the customer is being a jerk, reduce the damage they are doing to other customers around them as much as you can, and help them get their business done quickly. It's important not to take things personally.
