Submission + - Don't Bother Being Honest in Exit Interviews (

Esther Schindler writes: "Say that you're leaving a job, either on your own volition or because they decided it was time for you to "pursue other opportunities." Before you leave, the HR department wants to chat with you about the employment experience, in an exit interview. "Oh goodie," you think. "Now I can really tell them what I really feel."

Don't do it. If your employer couldn't find the time to ask you what was good or bad about working at the company while you were still working there, writes Lisa Vaas, why bother with honesty and potentially burned bridges now? (If they did ask, give them constructive feedback before you leave this job; they deserve it).
