Ideally, a prospective employer will contact your hand-picked references for
expert opinions about your ability to fulfill the responsibilities of a
position. But does anyone have ideas for how to handle the delicate
situation of a prospective employer potentially contacting an unreasonable
previous manager whom you suspect may be unjustifiably less than
complimentary? In fact, a simple "no" to the question of "would you hire
him/her again" can be nearly undefendable, whereas detailed reasons for
dislike can be explained or attributed to personality clashes. If they let
you know they want to call, you can provide some context, but if they call
without stating their intention, it could be the kiss of death.
