Unpleasant and awkward interview with both interviewer and the candidate feeling dissatisfied. Bad qualifications and weak application for job position during interviewing concept. Fervent

More than one-third (36%) of hiring managers lie to candidates during the hiring process, according to new survey data from ResumeBuilder.com. The most common times to lie are during the interview (75%), in the job description (52%), and in the offer letter (24%).

Hiring managers are most likely to lie about the role’s responsibilities (40%), growth opportunities at the company (39%), and career development opportunities (38%). Lower percentages also said they lie about the company culture, benefits, and company commitment to social issues.

These lies have consequences. Of the managers who lie to candidates, 55% say that they’ve had employee quit after discovering they were lied to.

“Lying to candidates undermines an organization’s integrity and is bad for business,” says Stacie Haller, chief career advisor at ResumeBuilder.com. “Candidates are making decisions based on the information they receive, and deceit only leads to bad outcomes for both the organization and candidate. Honesty not only upholds an organization’s reputation but also is critical for cultivating success for both the company and the individuals it seeks to attract.”
