    I got offered a job at Morrison's as admin assistant. However my previous employment wasn't good, we argued alot, and they claim i owe them money (which i don't). However they are one of my references and my Morrison's letter says, the job is subject to satisfactory references.

    I'm worrying now.

    Can anyone give me some advice

    Ring them up and ask them if they can use another reference.

    Just give them the reference - a good chance they won't follow it up and if they do well the worst is that they won't give you the job - but really its not that likely that stuff will somehow end up in their knowledge

    I start training on Monday so if i ask them to change my reference they will do?

    The company is was working for may have gone bankrupt anyway
