Some companies will ask you to have an exit interview after you quit your job. In a nutshell, it’s a “heart to heart” with your boss or the HR supervisor, where you will be asked your reasons for resigning, and your inputs on the organization.
No matter how you feel about your old job, it’s best to remain calm, objective and to some extent, prudent as you answer the interview questions. You don’t want to burn bridges. In fact, you want to use this opportunity to create a positive “last impression” so to speak — putting your best foot forward, and give intelligent answers and recommendations. Most of all, thank the company for the opportunity to work with them and whatever you have learned, and if you have any negative observations, put them in a constructive manner. Don’t say, “My boss is an idiot!” say, “I see a need for clearer communication lines between upper and middle management.”
