How do you answer 'Why have you been fired' in a job interview?
As a Human Resources person with over 16 years in the HR field, I have conducted well over 3,500 interviews and believe it or not, if you've been fired from a job, the company will probably find out about it. Generally, the interviewer will pick up on a non-truthful response - especially if they're good at what they do.
It's always best to answer truthfully. If you are asked this on an application, be honest and indicate "yes" then briefly explain the circumstances. If you get the interview, again, answer truthfully and explain the situation. If you were in the wrong about something, indicate that, but also state that you have learned from your mistake and if possible, give examples of what/how you've learned.
Indicating "yes" does not always prevent a person from getting hired, but lying on an application is usually grounds for termination and lying in an interview is a bad idea. Most HR people will do reference checks, criminal records checks and possibly credit checks. If you've lied, a good HR person will find it.
So, as the first person said .... answer TRUTHFULLY.

If you had been fired because they wanted rid of you for some misdemeanor, they would be foolish not to have picked up on the fact that they had previously fired you, but if they did not and you did not tell any lies on your application or at interview, then hey you have a new contract of employment.
What if they fired you because you didn't met expectation and your asked on job applicaiton and in an interview why you left your other company?
Determine if the person being interviewed is the right person for the job... You answer with what is most important to you: "This job matches the goals that I have been preparing for"; "This job provides the salary that I am looking for"; "This job is in the location that I like"; "This company/organization is the type I've been looking for". Always do your homework before an interview. Know what the position is and what…
Ask a friend/family member if they have any job suggestions. Check the newspaper too. If you have an interest in working in a certain place, go to that company or store and ask for an application or job interview. You can always go back to college to get another degree or to learn a different specialty.
