that's............ballsy, I suppose.
I've had a boss tell me to highlight the negatives of an employee for whom I was acting as a reference- because the boss did not want to lose that employee.
Former boss, I hope
I hate the whole references thing. So nice when your HR dept learns you are interviewing.
We are not allowed to say anything for references, we have to refer to HR, which just gives them employment dates. You don't want to open yourselves up to lawsuits by saying anything that could be considered an opinion.
This is terrible management.
I'm sure it actually happens quite a bit.
Has nothing to do with OP but reminds me of a guy I heard of that put Terry Branstad as a reference on every job app, never got called on it because nobody went to the trouble of trying to contact him.
Buddy used me as a reference for something to do with the FBI (army ranger, john jay major etc) without telling me. Get phone calls and thought I was being interrogated by the FBI about my friend for some reason. didnt go well. Step 1: if you use someone as a reference, tell them.
