I'm getting kicked out during probation period and I'm about to have interview in a new place in the next week or two. During interview, should I be honest tell them or just cover it up? What should I tell them if they are prying?

The problem underlined was communication problem. I'm in charge to maintain old project made by other engineer now an "upper dude". Upper dude and I have different views and at some point he start being unreasonable getting heated up looking down on me provoking me. I took the bait and it doesn't end well. The next day after lunch I'm scheduled with HR and well, fired.

I know he's provoking and I took the bait. At that point I don't know how to improve the situation other than saying yes to him so I just wing it. But if I did say yes, it would slowly cause problem which I'm not willing to handle. Its damn near stupid reason to do it his way and I don't want to do it.

My track record in 2 previous place was great. My concern is what if an HR person be like "Eww this man fail probation. He must be suck". How screwed am I?

    Have a look on workplace stack exchange, there's probably a few similar questions

    @electrineer Its not on my resume but theres a gap between the last place and now. It would be like me unemployed since October

    You left because you didn't like it, so you can just say it. The probation period is for both sides.

    Don't lie, don't advertise. It didn't work out, creative differences. Don't give more detail than they ask for

    I wouldn't include it in my CV let alone mentioning it in my interview if it means lessening my chances. If there's kind of a gap try to find something to say(if they ask you about it)

    I had a similar situation and my probation period ended after a month and a half in november.
    Honestly, don't even mention it, I got rejected after interviews where i made the mistake of being honest about what happened
    Now i just don't mention it and just say that I had trouble finding something during the pandemic
