Hitting a fence NEW
by: hervy

John, it's hard to say for sure. I would think so. Unless for some reason the believe that you should have known you hit the fence.

If you tore the fence down, for sure you should have seen that you hit the fence.

However, it's been known for a company to call for a simple scratch to the fence. I have seen it happen.

However, since the company fired you, I would assume there was significant damage.

I could be wrong.

Either way, the only way to know for sure is to just apply at companies and find out.

Don't lie about not having an incident/accident though. They will find out. They surely will not hire you then.
