We all heard about disgruntled employees…but what about disgruntled supervisors.
I had 8 supervisors over the course of 4.5 years. I had moved on to a new job for 2 years but am looking for another position. If I am required to fill out SF 86, I have no problem with my current supervisor being contacted, as long as it is not during performance evaluation as I hate to see my payout go toward someone else because my supervisor thinks I wouldn’t need it. However, I don’t know what the 8 other supervisors, all of whom had been moved out or even forced out of that single position. The last one actually blamed me and a few other folks for not staying in a sinking ship as a reason for him/her being forced out. On section 13 (Employment History), should I expand on that in the additional page provided. Honestly, I don’t even know where he/she works now and can’t recall his/her last name and actual first name as he/she used either a middle name or nickname. I know two managers retired, 2 moved to another companies, and 3 lingered around but in lower role for similar pay.
I hate to pass the technical check, criminal and financial checks, and be turned down because a disgruntled former supervisor bad mouth his/her former employees. Technically, are people considered supervisors if they never performed year end evaluation on you or was not there long enough?
