What if you don't remember your ex-manager's last name?
I'm applying for a few jobs, and of course they ask for references. However, I don't remember my ex-manager's last name or any of the other supervisors' last names. We would just call them by their first names...I left the job a little over a year ago, so it's not something fresh in my mind. Do I make up a fake last name?

i had this problem too. luckily my old boss's name was on the internet when I googled it :-pif they aren't online, can you call an old co worker? go back and look @ the schedule/call list? or you might just have to call them and ask them flat out :-/ find out though, don't make one up!

If that's actually you in the pic, don't waste your time working. Just marry a prince and spend your time shopping.
Can't you just go to your old job and ask for their names?
I totally feel you. I wound up contacting the store where I worked before and they were able to tell me.
What kind of establishment you worked for? Everywhere I worked, I don't remember first names, and I require that no one calls me by my first name (I am ex-military, and last names are what we used--Unless we are actually fruiends, or related, I do not respond to my first name...)You may as well just give them just the first name... At the interview, explain that you all were on a first name basis, and you company was more on an informal basis and allowed for first name only basis... Hope that helps...Selective disinformation...
i had that happen too, who actually remembers last names of people they don't really socialize with anyway. I just put the first name and left it, if asked in an interview I'd say I don't recall the last name. they can call the business and find out usually by asking someone there if it matters that much too them.
