    It might help if we understood how your rollover happened. We can help you put it in the best light as you apply for new jobs.

    There are rollovers and then there are ROLLOVERS. Get my drift?

    For those of us who are only 99% sure we get your drift (cue the XCOM memes, BTW), care clarify the difference between rollovers and ROLLOVERS?
     
    Lepton1 Thanks this.

    There are rollovers that are because of excessive speed in turns or going brain dead in a straightaway. Then there are rollovers from blown steer tires or a blown trailer tire in a curve.

    Never seen one. Have seen drivers going too fast for conditions and those conditions causing a rollover.

    That’s a blow over. That can happen if you’re parked. I wouldn’t count a blow over as a roll over.

    Sorry, doesn't look good for you. A rollover, unless unpreventable, is a huge red flag for any employer. Since the company fired you for it, it had to be your fault. Again, sorry, at 6 months in, and this, I'd probably pass you up too.
     
    Lepton1 and TripleSix Thank this.
