What do you do when a bad worker asks to give a reference?
I recently had a friend text me and ask for a reference. We did work together for a short time, and then he quit with no notice/got fired. This friend has been at several jobs since I've known him and never stays at one for long. I feel like if I give him a good reference he'll just do the same thing he's done in the past, but I won't be out anything if I give him a good reference either. What do you think I should do?
