for workplaces to give references? I got a message today saying that my former workplaces wouldn't give references so now I have to give them names of former co-workers to get them from. I read the questions on the back of the reference sheets they mailed out while I was filling them out and the only questions on them were Would you rehire this person, did this person call off more/less than expected, and another question along those lines I can't remember at this moment. Nothing invasive but according to the message the hospitals refused to give any reference. I know employers aren't suppose to give detailed references but these seemed like standard questions. Am I wrong to be aggravated? I really want this job and I just feel like I take 2 steps forward only to take 3 steps back.
