They would drop you in two seconds without a thought if it could save them two cents

Exactly relationships are a 2 way street. Give and take. You don't want to give me any feedback on why you didn't choose me as a candidate fine I can accept that. You feel no qualms about laying me off, firing me, or treating me like sh^t because you are my boss I have thick skin.

After all that, you think I owe you are reason kiss my

As tempting as it may be to "tell all," you have nothing to gain and possibly some things to lose.

Don't burn bridges...if you say anything be as tactful as possible...

I let a company have it about 10 years ago-I'm still on the no-rehire list-not my finest moment

People with that kind of attitude are exactly what makes workplaces terrible environments. You do realize that all of you who refuse to help anyone out at work are exactly the heartless people you complain about on this board every day, don't you? I would have a very hard time going through life with as heartless of an attitude as you have.

If you have issues with someone in the company, they don't care. Don't say anything, they don't care. No matter how strongly you feel, they don't care. Just leave pleasantly. Getting mad or self righteous will do absolutely no good whatsoever because...they don't care.

I did an exit interview when I was younger, I was completely open and honest about how much of an idiot my direct supervisor was. Even though I resigned that exit interview alone has caused me to be ineligible for rehire-not that I want to go back anyway. Either way, lesson learned.

My perspective on exit interviews are a little bit different. I work in HR, and exit interviews have been very helpful in certain situations.

In one instance, one of our locations had extremely high turnover, and we didn't know what was causing it. During the course of several exit interviews, we found out that certain mid-level managers were abusing employees and treating them like children, causing the entry-level employees to leave.

We made the supervisor aware, and he gave the mid-level managers a verbal warning to essentially "knock it off" and the situation improved after.

When I conduct exit interviews, I try to stay as impartial as possible, and only make their supervisor aware if it's something involving them that needs correction. Sometimes you have to take what an employee says with a grain of salt, but they have been helpful making HR aware of internal day-to-day issues that we don't know about.

It's in a business's best interest for employees to be happy and not be in a toxic environment.
