It depends on what you were fired for. You need to speak about it openly and honestly. However, if it was for being late, or calling off a lot, you might run into a problem. At any rate, if you speak honestly, you might want to add what you are now doing differently. If you try to "hide" or "lessen" the truth, and they call and get details that differ in what you told you might not stand a chance at all. Your best shot is to be honest.
Just say you got let go because they weren't making enough money, you wanna make yourself seem like your a good worker, if you say ohh yah I got fired cuz I was texting and shit the guy/girl will be like "ummm okay that's all we need to hear" and you will never receive a call back ;0 Hope this helps I guess lol
I have been fired several times, sad but true, but most times I have also won my unemployment claim, so you could say something like, Although I was let go from my previous employment, because of a clash of personalities, or a misunderstanding, or a mistake the mgmt. thought I had made, it was also deemed unfair by the state in which you live, my state is WA.. So Wa. ST.allowed me to collect all my unemployment benefits.
