At my exit interview I just had to turn in my employee badge, Train/Bus pass, and any other company equipment I had in my possession. Said goodbye and walked out the door.

Regarding the nature of the exit interview, it is a company policy that it is done with anyone leaving the company.

One of the purposes is to collect company property. In my case it included keys, company ID, laptop computer, credit card and cell phone.

Since I have known the HR person since he was new to the company, he let me fill out the questionnaire myself rather than asking the questions of me. The questionnaire included questions about my supervision, company policies, training, etc. Some examples were:

Do you consider your supervisor to be fair?
Did you receive adequate training to be able to do your job?
Rate how well the company communicated it's goals and objectives?

I suppose that if I didn't want to do the questions, they wouldn't make a big deal about it but rest assured that if I didn't turn in the company property, they could withhold my last paycheck (I actually will have two) and any other money they might owe me.

The theory, or one of them, behind an exit interview is it gives the employer a chance to get a no holds bared critique from the person leaving. It also gives the retiree the chance to get stuff off his chest with absolutely no fear of repercussions. I have seen them be very constructive on both sides as well as a full blown bitch session with a Kiss My ... At the end. In my experience most places allow for it, some even mandate it, but then again if you failed to show what could they do. On your big day you should do what makes you feel the best as you walk off into the sunset, and that is the high road for me.

Ain't worth it. Just smile, turn around & leave. If no one heard you before, they won't listen in an exit interview.

Since this thread is about the exit interview here is how mine went.

After finding out that I had qualified for the buy out/early retirement offer I got a call from my boss that was about 2 1/2 hours away. He said good luck, leave your ID & keys with Joe (a co-worker really named Joe) who would be also taking the buy out in a month. I packed up my personal stuff and let them pay me to take it home in my company car. At the end of the day Joe walked out to the door with me, I said goodby to him and the security guard and walked out. No fanfare, no gold watch, no party. I felt like 30 years went by and almost no one noticed.

I can remember years before when some one retired there was a breakfast for them. Usually a rip snorter of a party one night soon after and a lot of pats on the back. The yearly union clam bakes are gone as are many of the get togethers we had.

This is how corporate America seems to operate these days. It used to be about family first, safety second then the company. Now it is profit and shut up if you don't like it. Makes me very happy we are out of the rat race.

End of rant. I feel better now Enjoy your retirement.

Ya, your right..I'm just slow..took 25 years to figure out when they ask for suggestions to improve the "process", they really want you to be a little sheep and go about your way.

I never really retired from any company. I worked in sales most of my working life and believe it or not was terminated 4 times for making to much money. I was usually paid a 20% salary and 80% commission. I think when they saw the amount of money I made they figured I really didn't work for it and they could do it cheaper over the phone. I knew other sales people that had the same thing happen to them so I wasn't alone. I told one VP of sales that he had better hold on to the job he had because he wasn't qualified for any other. He had tried to screw me out of commissions three times which really ticked off the controller when I told him. The same person told me that sales was easy and I didn't really have to think about anything between sales calls. The only time I burned a bridge behind me.

Only had one boss that told me he didn't care how much I made because the more I made the more he made but he sold the company to his partner and that was the end of that.

No regrets though. I was usually able to regroup quickly and move on. I loved sales and retired comfortable, not rich but doing all right.

Anyway retirement is what you look forward all your working years so enjoy it and live it up while you can.
