Quitting and rehiring? - April 2nd 2016, 10:41 PM

So I quit a job without notice, like, five years ago. Recently I reapplied to work for the same company. I asked the manager at the place I am interested in working at again and they said to try reapplying and that they would talk to my previous supervisor. What do you think my chances are of getting rehired? The manager said that she wasn't sure whether or not they'd rehire me but to reapply any way.

2. (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

As you're obviously aware, the fact that you quit without giving notice doesn't work in your favour. However, that was five years ago; you were a lot younger then and, besides, we all make mistakes.

I guess it depends on how good of an employee you were in terms of your day to day conduct, e.g. how hardworking you were, how well you worked as part of a team, how many times you called in sick, etc etc.

Having worked for them before does actually give you an advantage over other candidates because you are a known quantity, i.e. they know what they would be getting. Hiring someone new is always a risk for any employer, but less of a risk if the person can be vouched for/recommended by someone in the company.

You certainly don't have anything to lose by applying, so I say go for it. You never know, your old supervisor may speak very highly of you.

Be kind to yourself.
