i just got home to a rejection letter from morrisons

worse thing is, life at work could get bad for me now as they had requested ref off ex work collegue which i know was good,
but also off my manager...
who i know now will make my life hell at work once she finds out...

she said she did a really good ref..(which i do deserve as always on time, do my work etc)
but how do i know she did?
as she is the type one day she likes you, next day hates and picks on you...

off tomorrow but admit a bit worried about work now...

can i ask for a copy of the ref that she sent to morrisons?

as need to know if it was good/bad as need to apply for other jobs?

thanks

im so sorry you got the worst News both my daughter and her boyfriend got theirs too. i would think you could persuade morrisons to give you a copy of the letter explain your boss is being an arse after they requested them, the feed back would be helpful

I don't think an employer isn't allowed to give a 'bad' reference, if they don't want to write anything nice about you then they can merely write things like '**** was employed within the company from ????-????'
Don't quote me on that but its what my manager said his legal advisor told him when he wanted to write that an ex collegue was always late, off ill and had no respect for authority (apparently classed as slander) :s

yeah this is right, an employer can not give out bad feedback and can only say that a person worked for the company...

I was under the impression that prospective employers only asked current employers for a reference if they were going to offer the job. Makes anyone think twice before putting their current boss down as a referee.

Really sorry to hear this, I was hoping it would be good News for you. I also would have thought they would have waited until there was the offer of a job before contacting your current employer. Please let them know how much difficulty this has caused you and let them know if they are looking for any future people that you would be available. Don't forget not everyone is going to be able to accept their offers due to hours or whatever so they might be coming back to people they have rejected.

Sorry to hear about this.

Just tell her you were after extra hours if anything is said. I don't think they can make your life hell over a reference. Employment law isn't my area, but I doubt it'd be legal.

I always put "references available on request" instead of names. I know some ask for references before offering a job if it's to whittle people down i.e. you may have 3 people who were equally good in interview & on paper but it may come down to what ex employer has to say. It's a shit trick but they're the ones offering the job so they can do it I guess.

I would not feel too disappointed ATM as there are a few people who already work for morrisons who have also been rejected for transfers from other morrisons stores, Ellesmere Port, West Kirby etc to New Brighton.
New Brighton will be running with a skeleton crew initially and will almost certainly re-recruit when/if things pick up after the store has been fully operational for a while.
Morrisons tend to mostly offer part time contracts first before they are prepared to increase from say 16,25 hours to full time 39 hour contracts.
