C$F: Employment History (Should I include this?)

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Sep 29, 2016 9:28 am

Do you think that I should include this? They were minimum wage jobs over 6 years ago.

C&F: Employment History

During my one-semester leave of absence from College (DATE 20XX), I was relieved from my duties working the front desk at Planet Fitness in Kennesaw, Georgia. I agreed to work as a personal trainer at a competitor’s gym nearby, so I was released due to a conflict of interests by the gym’s General Manager.

Additionally, I left Dunkin Donut’s in Acworth, Georgia during the same timeframe. I was frustrated with certain aspects of the job and was not paid for all of my hours.

C&F generally refers to disciplinary action(s). Neither of these seem to fit the case. Don't include, you will seem weird.

Agreed, but on some apps it asks if you have been fired or asked to resign from any jobs. I assume they are not referring to jobs at this level, but that involves an assumption.

If it asks that specific question, then yes, your situations sound like they would fit.

People abusing anon to give crappy advice. Follow the wording of the question closely; there's no harm in disclosing this type of stuff, but
if you're supposed to and you don't it might cause hiccups.

Disclosing wouldn't hurt anything. It's not like i you did something egregious. I disclosed something similar to the gym situation. Better to be safe.
