Disclosing Sales Figures To A New Employer?
If you were applying for a job in a shop that is in direct competition with your current employer and you took evidence of your very good sales figures from your current shop/employer to the interview as evidence of how good you are, bearing in mind the figures will display yours and others sales figures from different locations, would you get into trouble with the current employer and cause concern to the prospective new employer?Posted 4 years ago
Not sure if this is the done thing or not.

Retail so not ‘sales’ as in the Rep.’ing kind of position.Posted 4 years ago
That’s what I was thinking Mike but I could really do with seeing how good my figures are but not get them worried about my integrity……which may not be as good as I’d like to think it is anyway if I’m contemplating this?GJPMember
Can’t you describe your performance in less specific terms. Constantly beating targets by x%, relative to peers etc. I would have thought you were sailing pretty close to breach of contract, gross negligence sharing any figures with a competitor. I do not work in sales. Most importantly do not take evidence, but I may be interpreting what you have written too literally.Posted 4 years ago
I think I might have a compromise. I could redact the figures which is the sensitive info. At least then the new employer would see my position without the commercially sensitive sales figures? Makes it a bit vague but they can see my standing in the company.Posted 4 years ago

check your contract, if I was your boss you would be out for something like that.
If you can’t get through the interview without the figures I wouldn’t be giving you the job either.Posted 4 years ago
