I am a Catholic and although I could be a better one, my heart is always in the right place. I am proud that I always try to do the right thing...... On that note, my past two jobs were horrible. One was scamming people over the phone. Was told it was a Reception position. I quit that job immediately. My next job was at a daycare. They dont follow regulations and Im the only one that does..... It drives me up the wall that the kids arent being cared for the way they should......it puts me in a compromising position. I am currently looking for other work; but now that my resume shows two very short employments Im not getting hired. Im honest in my interviews, but my question is, am I being too honest when I state why I left the jobs? Both these jobs wont give me good reccomendations. I don't know I just feel like Ill never find any work out there that appreciates honesty and integrity.......Answer Question

During an interview I wouldn't say anything bad about a previous employer, no matter what. You can always report your employer, even anonymously, if you feel the kids are being mistreated. Remember right now job hunting is hard for everyone regardless of past employment problems.

I understand your predicament. Honestly is the best policy, but during interviews you do have to edit yourself a bit. I agree with what anon^^ said about the receptionist job. I don't want to give you bad advice, so I hope I'm not here, but if it were me in your shoes I'd feel the need to tell the interviewer that the daycare didn't follow regulation and that you couldn't in good conscience continue to work for a child care facility that didn't. I think it would show that the reason you left is because you cared about the well being of the children not because of some disciplinary problem between you and your previous employer. You could actually say just that.
