Quotes from Actual Reference Checks (no joke!):
  • (rating oral communications): "Can I give a negative number?"
  • (evaluating written communications): "You mean when she finally turned in the reports due a week earlier?"
  • (listing strengths and weaknesses): "I'm sure there must be some strengths, but nothing jumps out at me."
  • (describing reason for separation): "It was a rather delicate and awkward situation. You should call her other past employers. I made the mistake of not doing that."
