I think I was too honest because after looking at my CV the HR asked me why I am leaving my multinational, multibazillion company all I said was that "I was too pissed and turned off by the lack of integrity of their words. I did not get the raise they promised considering my achievements -- as stated on my CVs and how long I stayed. I felt that I deserve more than the paltry sum of money they offered."

Actually I was not looking for a job they just contacted me. I wanted to see what works, but for some odd reason it worked. I think they like my spunk.

I have the last say on recruitment for sensitive positions or management positions in companies we own.    I look for honesty, not sugar-coated reasons for leaving/wanting to leave their current employer-companies. 

But "of course",  it's taken for granted, IMO:  people move looking for greener pastures/career advancement -- otherwise , why will you move (unless you got fired/frozen??).  So, I want to know the real WHY you need to move to advance your career or income. 

IMO, no employer/company is perfect; it is just a matter of getting the current Best Fit between employer & employee.  What may have been a Good Fit before no longer works now for either the employer/employee -- so, time to Change.   
Thus, saying The Truth about an employer is not really backstabbing, it's just the plain truth.

Some Truths I have heard that are not backstabbing, IMO:
Insufficient/unfair compensation (be ready with your figures);
Company policy to favorably misrepresent itself to get more recruits in;
Almost impossible upward advance due to policy of putting in extended family members in top/critical positions;
Glass ceiling for female employees;
Position requires fabrication of documents/figures for government reporting requirements;
Supervisor (not company owner) makes personal demands (pick up kids, collect rentals , etc);
Current company not stable (there are times salaries are delayed, company has zero business, etc);
Our company is bigger than their current company.

As for a relocation working against an employee's commute time & expense, yes - understandable.  I myself do not hire anyone who needs over an hour's commute 1 way.  I have observed these employees with long commutes often arrive late, and tend to stop work & tidy up by 5:45. :(

IMO, The Truth always works in an applicant's favor.  Sugar coating & run-of-the-mill buzz words/phrases are red flags to me:  this applicant is not being truthful.   Better I can assess more accurately your strengths & weaknesses --  after all, nobody is perfect. But there is always a good fit (but if there are money/equipment/trust issues underlying an applicant's exit from the previous company:  then it's a no-hire).

Kaka-resign ko lang dun sa dati kong work. Nagpaka-honest lang ako. Sinabi ko na I want a work-life balance. Sa previous work ko kasi halos wala kami nun. Kahit weekends nagwowork, tapos pag weekdays may OT pa rin.

Reason ko talaga is: Yung napaka lungkot na environment at lakas ng pulitika na mukhang dead end career na ito dahil nga sa politika.
This is actually a perfect answer.

Although I agree that most companies have internal politics, some are actually tolerable compared to others.

just tell the truth because hr practitioners know how to fish out questionable answers from applicant...yung tipong nagiimbento. ifever you tell the truth, try to turn a negative perception into something positive.

My immediate resignation reason is to take care of my mom...
as in kinabukasan agad... di nako pumasok..

it is not an excuse for an immediate resignation though (based on my research), so i told em.. kahit termed na it's fine basta nagpaalam ako.. so that for my next employment di ko sila itatago; pinasa ko lahat ang medical records ni mom, hindi naman siya bed ridden; hyper tension tapos sobrang bangungot talaga sa gabi..

i was also on my training bond pa pala. para wala nalang problema sabi ko ideduct nalang yun sa final pay ko...

at dahil sukang suka na ko sa pag call center... eto narin ang chance ko magiba ng career.. nagenroll nako online sa EAA;. Bookkeeping with payroll course.. geezz so fed up with call centerss whewww!

Madalas na reason ko for leaving is location ng office. Mag aapply ako sa malapit then ililipat ka sa super layong location naman. Pag sinabi mo hirap ka sa byahe, dedma lang. Ayaw ka rin ilipat ng project para sana sa mas malapit na office ka nalang mag report, ayaw din.

Ngayon naman sa work ko walang work-life balance. Puro dagdag work, walang dagdag sahod. I-hire kaya ako ng next employer pag ito sinabi kong reason for leaving?

^yan sis ang reason ko for leaving my previous job. Usually tinatanong bakit work life balance. So ieexplain ko na sobrang dami ng workload ko. Sa external audit kasi normal uwi ko na 9 pm eh tapos pag busy season hanggang madaling araw nagwowork.

If you're not comfortable to tell the truth then just tell the interviewer that based on what you've learned so far from their company, you think that they can provide you with greater opportunities to do what you love and that you also like the working environment there. Other possible answers: "I am interested in pursuing other possibilities within my chosen career field." or "Although it was a good job, I felt as though I had learned everything I could and wanted to move on to a new company where I can continue to grow professionally."

Just don't ever badmouth your previous employer :)

And how will you say sa recruiter na you'll still render 1 month for resignation and another month for the transition ng papalit sa post mo..
They will usually ask naman kung kelan ka pwede magstart. Just tell them your preferred date since you still have to render from your previous company.

The truth shall set you free girl! lol. ANyway, I agree sa kanila, you can probably tell them the truth in a nice way yung hindi naman po offensive sa previous employer nyo kasi baka isipin din naman po ng interviewer biased kayo ganun. Pero if hindi nyu po bet hen better to tell them na you found a better opportunity sa kanila? something like that

ako naman i was a bank teller for almost 4 years and 3 months to be exact and may master?s degree ako at the same time, ang nagiging issue ko bkit hnd ako napromote within that years, which is mabagal nman talaga ang growth especially pag sa branches ka naassign to the point na ang daming tumatandang teller , so in short wala hnd ko talaga nagamit yung degree ko kaya umalis nko, and the stress, risk exposure cannot commensurate the salary I get kaya eto nagrisk ako na maghanap ng better opportunities sa labas

Ok lang ba sabihin sa mag interview sayo na kaya ka aalis dahil sa "conflicting values" with the boss? Nega ba ang dating?

I am planning to resign na rin kahit almost 2 months pa lang ako sa firm ko. Gusto ko sana tumagal kaso unbearable na boss ko. Namemersonal na. Pag ayaw na nya sa isang tao, ayaw na nya talaga. Pag-iinitan niya at hahanapan na niya na mali. Hindi siya tulad ng ibang boss na pagkatapos ka pagalitan, makikipagbiruan na sayo mamaya.

Hindi lang ako ang lawyer na nakaranas nito sa current law office ko ha. More than ten lawyers na nagresign dito dahil sa ugali nya. Lahat effective immediately pa after one month. Walang nagbibigay ng 30-day notice.

Ayoko naman na hindi banggitin to sa resume ko. Kung di ko binanggit ito, nagmukhang three months akong bakante. Di ba mas red flag sa future employers yun?

Paano ba sabihin sa future employers bakit ka magreresign without appearing so negative? Feeling ko rin kasi pag sinabi kong "conflicting values" magtatanong lalo yung mag interview.
The less you respond to negative people, the more peaceful your life will become.
