If you've been laid off, how upfront are you about it in interviews? Better to let them know right away or further into the process?

Upfront because they will pull your finra broker check report before the interview.

I haven’t been laid off but I have been fired. It always comes up so you’d better have an explanation.

I’ve never been fired/laid off, but I’ve interview people that have. Trust me, we know before you came in. I actually don’t bring it up and wait until they do. If they have a reasonable answer, no issue. If they bash their old company or blame others, that’s a red flag.

I’ve brokerchecked myself and don’t see any mention of being terminated by a previous firm. Am I missing something or does it not report this info?
