Exit interviews - A true story

Another friend had a rather weird exit interview experience.  While going through the exit interview she was asked to be honest about the company she was leaving. And she is still regretting it.

Six months after quitting her ex-boss called her for a new profile. The offer was almost ready, till the HR head put his foot down pointing out a few not so good things that she had written and spoken about in the exit interview.

It was a funny situation given that the same guy had encouraged her to be honest while taking the exit interview.
The moral of this story as Scott Adams put it: 'Honesty is always the best policy for people who have already given their notice and will never need a job reference.'

Of course, this friend of mine never got the job.
