We've all seen or used the typical reasons - better pay, advancement, laid off, etc.

How about this for a reason for leaving listed on a job application? "Warring factions."

The applicant was from Nigeria. shocked

Sound like one of the branches I worked at in a sightly less than desirable neighborhood.

I could list that as mine, I was fighting the board, the board one and my department was exiled. That's way more fun than being downsized!

Hope he/she's got better luck with the new employer!

Some recent reasons I've heard: one person said she wants to leave current job because she doesn't like the morals of her boss. The other said there was a lot of gossiping and back stabbing at her current job.

The last time I left a job was about 13 years ago. I was offered the opportunity to move to an office in Rancho Cordova, CA or St. Petersburg, FL...I chose to get a new job in San Francisco.

They refused to stock the cafeteria with healthy foods, instead it was full of fried, sugary and otherwise unhealthy food items

"Warring factions" -- maybe it was the compliance dept vs the lenders.

I'm actually about to turn in my resignation for my current job because I'm sick of working from home!





Seriously!

I left because I found their policy on work release from prison to be too restrictive.
