I recently got fired from my first job after working there for 6months and even being promoted. Im conflicted as to whether I should put this on my resume. My old manager had no problem being put down as a reference. I have a great work ethic, just think the job was too close to my house and I got a bad habit of leaving late.
If you omit that period of time, the interviewer will very likely ask you what you did during that time. If you lie, or otherwise decline to answer, that would typically be looked upon as a negative.
That said, they'll likely ask you why you were only there for 6 months. You should phrase the answer bluntly (you were fired for being tardy, and were tardy for
...reasons), and you can also use it as a segway to ask the interviewer what their policy on work hour flexibility is. Many companies nowadays offer a smaller 'core' set of hours and people are able to come in/leave when it suits them as long as they get the work done. Mostly it's simply being treated as an adult instead of a child. Companies that behave like the latter don't trust their employees and would likely micromanage you to intense frustration.
Either way, figuring out what they expect and letting them know your preferences is a good way for you both to determine whether it's a good fit.
If you are sure your manager will leave a good reference, then it should be ok.
Dont offer any more information than you need to on your resume.
Dont have a resume that says:
ABC Company. Hired june 2018 - Fired dec 2018 for attendance issues
Acme Co. Hired Jan 2018 - Fired june 2018 for insubordination
just put the most basic info
ABC Company. june 2018 - dec 2018
Acme Co. Jan 2018 - june 2018
if a new interviewers asks why you left say something along the lines of:
Wasnt a good fit
Was looking for better opportunities
