Hi i am trying to reconstruct my Resume and i need some help. I have worked in a kitchen on and off for years the best job I had been 1 year 7 months in a French Restaurant before it closed I left i found out they closed a year ago when i tried to contact them to ask for a reference would you put this on your résumé if their was no way for you to verified it if asked or when it comes time for the place on the application where it says can or may we contact this employer. Would you check yes and just let them find out on their own they are closed or would you check no and then give areason due to them being closed ? Also I worked last summer June 2nd to September end of September almost 4 months the Main reason i don't put this on my Resume is because it's so short just under 4 months and i think what employer wants to see instability such as only a 4 month job am i thinking of this wrong or should i still put it on even though it was only 3 months and 3 weeks ?. The other thing about this job is i would not mark off the section that says you can call i would say no. why is because this employee the Chef hired me knowing i was in school and knowing that i had told him before he offered me the job that I am paying 37k to go to school and i can't work swing shifts i can work 10 to 7 one day and 4 to 12 the next day. So he had fear warning that i could only change my school shift every 6 weeks so if he wanted me in the evening he had to commit to that and not schedule me for morning or afternoon. and i had changed my schedule after a few weeks of having to miss classes and make up days. I asked him if he wants me to be available during the days and early afternoons and i would switch classes to an evening class he told me yes so i did that. than he continued to put me on 2 evenings a week that we had talked about and he knew I could not do that. I was on my way to work one day got into a bad accident had to go in the next day and say for medical reasons ineeded to take time off due to oxygen issues i was having that caused my accident he said i won't have a job when ireturn if i take more than a few days off. I had contemplated giving my notice anyways due to the fact that he was not respecting my hours. I left on bad words and had a layer contact the owner of the restaurant to explain what i felt and how i felt. they didn't care they would not offer me my job back and then a few weeks later i found out the chef was fired and a new one was in but the owner would still not offer me a job back. I left on bad terms and words with the owner so i am afraid they would give me a bad review. So my questions is if you where interviewing me and found out these where the reasons why i would not allow my permission to contact the previous employee would you understand or would you be more likely to pass me on ? would you even put these on the résumé at all ? please if some of you could help me out with the struggle i am having here and opinions thank you . I was offered a job a few weeks ago it was 12.00 per hour and the chef said i would be required 60 hours per weekMinume so i know that would be great pay with over time of at least 20 hours overtime each week the problem is i would have to leave school cause he said he would need me to be available all hours of day during the hours i could take classes from. I had already spent over like 29,000 in school and another 6 months before i go on internships 29k in student loans to date. and i said no i would not. the Chef said why i said because if it was just about the pay and finding a great job then i would take it in a heart beat he said your crazy for turning down what could be between 45 and 50k a year not even as a chef just a cook i said i can't i want to go to school and get my degree because I have a goal of teaching High-school Culinary in 5 or 6 years from now and for that i need to have my degree. so do you think im crazy for turning day 12 and hour 40 hours a week and 24 and hour for the 20 hours in overtime each week ? and would you if i interviewed understand the other stuff above about the 2 previous jobs or would you not care and just say he's unreliable ?
