I am in a bit of a quandary and would love the community's advice.
Here's my situation:
I am in the process of resigning from my current employer due to my extreme unhappiness with the place - to say it's a toxic environment would be kind. (People have been resigning frequently, btw).
My main reason for resigning vs. just looking for another job on the side is that the company is a sweatshop, requiring 70+ hours/week of work just to stay afloat (i.e., just to keep from being fired). In other words, while I have attempted to conduct a job search on the side, I've found that all my "spare time" is devoted to doing more work for my company!
Anyhow, my question for everyone is in regards to explaining during my interviews why I quit w/o saying negative things about the company. I've always been told that speaking negatively abt a prior employer is a no-no on job interviews, and I totally understand the rationale... so, bottom line - how would I answer the, "why did you quit?" question w/o sounding negative abt my employer? It seems to me that if I'm neutral abt the employer and say things like, "it just wasn't the right fit", my resignation will seem highly questionable....
Any input or suggestions would be deeply, deeply appreciated.
Thanks for listening fellow MT'ers!
