No Rehire

  1. This is my first time posting on here. I could really use some advice.
    I was placed on the no rehire list at the long term care facility i worked at when i was 16. I was fired for a couple things due to my personal life, but mainly a result of my attendance. That was November of 2016. I have recently applied to my previous facility on Indeed.com buy mistake. I have checked with them before and they stated that im on the no rehire list. They contacted me today for an interview.
    Of course this surprised me, so my question is this; When I go to my interview tomorrow how should I handle it because I will have to make them aware i previously worked there. Do you think they will see it and ask me to leave or is there a chance my name was removed since it has been 3 years now?
    i appreciate any advice I can get. Im depending on finding a new job and I dont want to get my hopes up. Thanks in advance.

    I would approach it head-on. I would tell the HR director that you had been placed on that list due to XYZ reasons. I would continue on to explain how you've learned and grown from that situation and would like to have another chace to prove your newfound maturity and skills to help them provide awesome patient care.

    Hiring managers are real people who have made mistakes in their lives, especially in their teenage years, so they do understand. I would be upfront, honest, and have a solid plan laid out to show them to ensure that situation will not happen again.

    Good luck!

    Keep your antennas out, though. Some of these "no re-hire" decisions can change if staffing is bad enough. You could be walking into a nightmare.

    That's a good point also.

    Thank you very much. Im extremely nervous because if I am able to get this job im going to be able to afford to go back to school for my LPN. I dont want to lose this amazing chance.

    I would think that most people would be reluctant to hold someone's attendance at the age of 16 against them IF they have demonstrated consistent change in the interim.

    I would go to the interview and not say anything unless they ask you first. If they do ask, I would just explain that you were an immature kid and now you understand how important it is to be responsible and would not make that same mistake again. Good luck!

    You've gotten some good advice so far. Hopefully you learned from your mistake and move forward if given this opportunity.

    Just another suggestion - if your username is your actual name like it appears to be, I would change it.

    I agree with Daisy, I've been in the same situation and I didn't say anything and got the job.

    I just want to point out that Nov 2016 - June 2018 does not equal 3 years.
    It equals 1 year 7 months.
