This question already has an answer here:
After working for a year I was fired due to product mismanagement. (I worked at a restaurant and ate food that was going to get thrown out. GM didn't like it. GM also didn't like me because me and one of the supervisors didn't get along.) Several of the jobs I have applied to use a platform called Taleo, which in addition to allowing you to submit your resume, asks you to re-enter your work history and if you have left a job, to explain why. There is also a check box if it's okay for the company to contact your previous supervisor at the job.
I'm not sure if I should put "Terminated" under reasons for leaving.... or if I should leave the supervisor box checked. (While I worked there, I was a pretty darn good worker.) What do you guys think?
EDIT: I am considering putting "Left job to focus on schoolwork" or something along those lines because I am a fulltime university student. But I would feel uncomfortable letting them contact my workplace if I do "bluff" my reason for leaving like that.
EDIT #2: I have received a lot of good information (thank you to everyone that has replied!) but so far I have received mainly "don't do this" while I am looking for a "you should phrase it like this". Also, I had an interview today with one of the supervisors that works at the place I am applying to (unfortunately couldn't get it with the hiring manager); even though it seems like they are going to briefly scan over my application on Taleo (since I have already been interviewed), I'm still nervous that having "Terminated" would be a keyword that Taleo would highlight in big, red, glaring letters...
