Re: Hiring Managers: Just how prevalent is lying?

I think lying is quite common among hiring managers and employees.

There are many reasons I think it's prevalent. One of the primary reasons I believe is there is no accountability.

For example, a friend of mine was let go, I call that fired myself but society likes to sugar coat things, they told her "the position has been eliminated"

There was no truth in that at all, they were advertising and hiring for my friend's position inside of a few weeks.
