This question already has an answer here:
I worked for a company for 10 years in a management role. I left for what was a seemingly good opportunity. However when I got to the new job the position had changed between the time I interviewed and the time I started (for example, I was supposed to have a team of 4 resources, but I was told by the director on day 1 that I would not have a team for the foreseeable future). My old employer offered me the chance to return 6 months after I left which I accepted.
Fast forward to today (18 months later) and the company is now struggling and turnover is way up. Morale is way down and I want to look for a new job, but I am not sure how to handle the short stint on my resume.
Should I leave it off my resume or should I include it in the chronology?
