It is common for most companies, when checking for prior employment references, to ask if the person is eligible for rehire. That info is usually shared because it is a statement of fact rather than a subjective description of reasons for dismissal.

Just something to think about when deciding what to say during an interview.
You are misinterpreting my comment. Or maybe I was not clear.

There is not much of a way to side-step why one left a company. You can count on that being a pretty direct question. IMO - one needs to be forthright and truthful.

But in I would not get into the nitty gritty details.

Food: $300
Misc: $200

$1K per month left for health insur.

So yes, it can be done quite easily.
What kind of investment does the 4% come from?
