Has anyone been told by manager to lie during an exit interview? What did you do? I'm worried about burning bridges...

Sounds like a great discussion point for the interview.

It’s an exit interview. Yours. Speak your truth. If not now, when?! But stay relevant. It’s not a venting opportunity. Figure out what should change and say it

The manager isn’t going to have access to it, so speak your truth in a fact-based way

Yeah, kind of. It was more, 'here's what they will do in response if you are negative', with the implication being that it wasn't a good idea. I agreed.

That is slightly similar to my situation as well. I highly doubt my honest comments will be taken seriously enough to make any constructive changes.

Keep it professional. Use facts. Don’t put a bunch of emotions behind it.

I had 60 day late payment of 35 bucks in Jan. It was new Amex Hilton card I opened for stupid points. It was reported and my credit score had been consistently dropping from last 6 months. It was 780 and now is 735. I realized this 3 months and been paying my credit card bills immediately. Infact I have overpaid each card to have negative balance so my credit utilization is almost zero. What else I can do to repair the damage. I am applying for homeloan and this is big issue to get best rate

Does anyone have advice - ideally from experience - on how to feel when you’re told many times during a long job search that you’d be great, you have all the skills, but they are “looking for a diversity hire.” I support this. My fear of not being able to support my family is where I get lost. BIPOC deserve and should have these opportunities. My white, wealthy, employed friends tell me it’s the cost white ppl have to bear for equity. But they aren’t bearing it, I am. I do not know how to feel.
