Dating insecure control freak
And whether or not she does this, if she drops your name to a hiring manager, you should be honest: “Jane and I did work together, but she’s not someone I’d recommend hiring” (and then explain why). Negotiating a gym membership as part of a job offer I’m in the interview process with a company for a job I’m really interested in, and things seem to be going well.
I don’t blame you for that; it’s hard to have a perfect answer in the moment when you’re so taken off-guard. Frankly, it’s so wildly inappropriate and indicative of other likely problems that it also wouldn’t have been unwarranted to revisit the question of whether you’d made the right hire (had he not taken care of that for you a few hours later). I don’t want to be a reference for my lazy acquaintance I’m finding myself in between a rock and hard place.

After I found one, I learned that there was another internship position open, so I referred her based on our personal relationship during which she had proven to be intelligent, punctual, and eager to learn. During the course of her internships, we worked closely together and she was often lazy and unprofessional.
She would use company time and resources to apply for other jobs daily, was not on top of her work tasks or email, and never took the initiative to join in when our supervisor taught us something new or gave us more challenging work.
In short, she did not take advantage of the learning opportunity and was, in general, an ineffective employee.
