My boss and I are the only people currently working at my company's new branch. We are in the process of hiring new employees in the area and my boss has stated off-hand that he'd like to arrange for me to talk face to face with prospective employees about the company. I gather that he wants me to do this to give the prospective a better idea about the day to day work at the company. It seems that he also wants me to say, as an employee, how great the company is.
The trouble is, I'm not particularly satisfied with the company and I don't think I would be able to recommend it to a prospective employee. I'm not vindictive enough to directly tell the prospective not to apply, but I also don't want to lie and say it's great when I'm not happy with it.
If there were more people at my branch, I could say something like "I don't think I'd be the best person to talk with prospectives. Have you asked John?" However since I'm the only person aside from my boss, I don't have that luxury. I'm also not willing to voice my dissatisfaction to my boss at this time lest it interfere with my future job prospects.
Concrete plans have not yet been made, but I believe he intends to follow through with this and expects a commitment from me. So how can I deal with this request to speak to prospective employees about a company I'm dissatisfied with?
