I just left a job, with plans to start a new one in two weeks. On my last day, I was given a “Separation From Service Exit Interview” form to fill out if I wished to do so. The form has a series of ten questions in which I am asked to rate various aspects of my employment experience. Below each of these questions are three answers with checkboxes from which I am supposed to choose. The three valid answers are “Excellent”, “Good”, and “Average”.
Of course, it’s unthinkable for them to give a departing employee the opportunity to indicate that some aspect of their employment experience was below average. It’s Lake Wobegon (“Where all the children are above average”) meets corporate America!
I’m not planning on filling out the form.
