Best way to tell interviewer that you're not comfortable contacting management references?
I don't really feel comfortable contacting my previous boss. He was really annoyed that I left to try go to school because I had a key position. And we were not close, he worked in his office, and I worked on the floor. Should I just tell the interviewer that "Hello, I've decided i'm no longer interested in this job position." And then... i'm not sure if I should state that I don't feel comfortable with contacting my employer.
I had already provided 3 co-worker references from that company, but she called me and said she wants 2 management references.
