I feel so stupid

Been applying for a new job...applied at one for a company I worked with in the past.  Left on bad terms...did a no call no show after GM called me a total F up in front of customers and coworkers...told the person who called all this.  Lost that opportunity...so now I feel like shiit...FI told me I did not have to tell them that.  Made me feel even worse.  Now job hunting and printing out wedding invites...and printer is deciding to not print at all....WTF and I have to wait until Friday now for a meeting.

    It doesn't matter whether you told them or not.  They would have looked in your personel file or spoken with your prior supervisor and found out that you quit via no show.

    And it was on my resume where I worked and I am sure the GM is still the same at that restaurant.

    In most states employers aren't allowed to divulge why you are no longer employed with the company. I would check your state employment laws.

    True...never thought of that.  But it is too late now for that one.

    If you previously worked for the company, they can most certainly pull your file on previous employment history with them. If you didn't tell them, it would have come out.

    At one of my previous jobs, one of my duties was to screen job applicants basically to see if granting them an interview would be a waste of my manager's time. Whenever I came across somebody that previously worked for us, the very first thing I had to do was pull their file and look into how/why they left us. People that quit via no call-no show were never re-hired, regardless of how good of an employee they were leading up to it, or what possibly provoked them into doing so. We weren't interested in running the risk of them doing it again. I'm not saying that you would necessarily do that again, just that it's really a legitimate concern from a hiring standpoint.

    Also... just as a side note... even if your former boss was a complete douche and you left for legitimate reasons, it's usually not good to talk badly about your boss in an interview.

    If this were an interview for another company, I might just say that the boss and I have a difference of opinion or something vague like that.  Your next boss doesn't want to hear you badmouthing your old boss, even if he was a true jerk.

    I hope you find something else!  Good luck!

    True story: a while back, my husband was running a store that was looking to hire an assistant manager. One of the women that worked in the store the position was in applied for it, and my husband was part of the team that conducted her interview. I can't remember exactly how it came up, but during the interview, she went off on a rant about how her current job was the absolute worst job she'd ever had, and she'd yet to see anybody that was actually competent in charge of anything, and that's why she wanted to be promoted: so she could show everybody else what they were doing wrong.

    I'm sure you're shocked to find out that she didn't get the promotion. Or that she didn't last much longer with the company after the fact.

    One of the big no no's of interviewing is bashing former employers. (I was the GM of a restaurant and did all the hiring and interviews there.)

    While some emplyers may be total jerkwads...the interview is not the place to tell all that is/was wrong with the place/people.

    And I'm sorry your printer isn't working right.
