How should I include a job on my resume that I was fired from?

by Diane

I was fired from my last job as a cashier. It doesn't make sense. My co-workers told me that the manager just wanted me out. I've since seen 4 of my customers and they all said that they never had a problem with my lines being slow. They couldn't believe that I was fired. How do I put this into my resume without lying?

ANSWER: This is difficult... I never advise lying, and sometimes I think the only thing you can do is be honest. I'd lay it out (if asked) for any future employers and let things fall where they may.
