    [​IMG] I'm pretty bored. Tomorrow we're all going for lunch across town and then having a going away happy hour for me. Friday is always pretty chill and I'll have to have my exit interview, return equipment, etc. Today is [​IMG] .

    Does management really give a fuck about exit interviews?

    Starting new job on Tuesday. [​IMG]

    Enjoy the party man.

    Thanks!

    Where are you going?

    Better pay, much closer to home (almost too close...), more growth, etc.

    I don't know... I'll say mostly positive things, per normal. Should I do something wild?

    If it's a woman give her a big smooch the way Henry Blake did Hot Lips before he got in the chopper....

    I usually use exit interviews as a last chance to make a good impression. If you leave them feeling nostalgic then your reference will be good. If you make them glad you're leaving then they'll say so in your reference!

    I actually had a collegue loose his job because of a person who reported to him's exit interview. the guy basically said "things are so bad even the department head is looking for work, and told us all that". the department head was terminated the same day

    Agreed, unless of course you are leaving because things are just bad messed up, in which case I'd probably feel an obligation to be honest, whether it hurts me in the long term or not..

    Wow, hope he was looking hard in the weeks before that exit interview..

    In short. No.

    I've got a week and a half left at my current job.
    My boss emailed me our exit interview form today, with instructions to fill out my name and other info, and said that if I wanted to he'd talk it over with me.

    no, actually the guy was totally fucked. I think that he ended up being unemployed for 4 months or more.

    The guy giving the exit interview should take the prick of the month award for that one..
