I was working with one of the leading FMCG company, and i was not comfortable with the behaviour of my boss. So i have resigned and left the company. They have completed all legal formalities without giving me any trouble.
Now i have some doubt.
(1) What should i tell the interviewer as reason of leaving the company?
(2) Since last one month i have no job. So i need advise, what reason i should tell in interview for the reason of break.

How long wete you in thecompa y
Just tell new company that you were looking for change to gain wider exposure and experience
One month is not a big gap
Ideally you should have secured another jobbefore quiting
What guarentee is there that you will like your new boss

You left the job as not pulling well with your boss.
Have you ever tried to know the reason of dislike?
How do you think that new boss and assignment would be good one?
Try to amend upon attitude, behaviour and thinking, which would be stand good for you in future.
Always reason out the resignation was due to an urgent work at domestic front which was requiring substantial time, for which previous company was not agree provide long leave(keep a solid reason to belive by one).

Dear colleague,
If you were not feeing comfortable working with your boss ,why did you not take up with higher authorities?
Your decision to leave the job without getting another was not correct.
In my view you should tell the facts to the interviewer and don't attempt to hide anything.

Dear Anon:
You will not always have a boss of your liking. Adjustments have to be made (by you) towards accepting his behavior and attitude. This is an absolute bottom line.
Coming to your query. NEVER speak ill of your last boss, the company or its culture.
One leaves for a better opening, an advancement in the career , for some enhanced training and development or for higher studies. Very rarely it could be for domestic/familial reasons.
The reason you could offer for the break - and this should not be a fake - is you are working on improving your social and soft skills with friends and better still at a training and development institute / center, helping you to better interact with the people and the environment.
Hope these lines help.
Never lie!

Dear All,
Thanks for reply.
I think, i have given incomplete information to you.
My boss behavior is very bad with all other staff also.
This issue has been all ready reach to our higher management also, and they have told him to give resignation so many times. But we don't know what is the story between him and management.

As i mention, i have been revealed by them without any trouble. They have complected all legal formalities smoothly. They clear my all dues, issue me the revealing letter. But they have not mention actual reason of my resignation to our top management. So many staff have been left since last few months due to our boss. No new staff have been joined due to this reason.

Dear Anon
Don't bother about " ... the story between him and management..."
What you need to tell the panel (interviewing committee) at the time of the interview is that you had come to a dead end - in terms of promotion / professional growth and had some domestic issues which could not be avoided and needed a lot of your time - these being the reasons for your parting ways with the last employer.
Mentally realign yourself with the cultural setup of the future employer. Hopefully, you will be a great performer.
Gather yourself and the best of luck.

Thanks Mr.Arif.
If i will explain the reason which you have suggest than, is effect on my selection or my expected salary?

Dear Anon:
Your selection depends of how well you go through the interview process. If you are well grounded in your hard skills, have interacted well with your soft and social skills, exhibited resilience and presence of mind in challenging situations, during the interview, then hopefully you are in.
As far as the salary is concerned, you will have to weigh your 'assets' and how well you have negotiated and bargained will be the deciding factors for the compensation package.
Remember nothing comes for free
