I will never forget

Location: United Kingdom
Job: Care worker

Dear ex boss,

How dare you disregard my physical illness saying I don’t look the type to have it???

My illness does not have a ‘look’ and you would know this if you had done your homework on it rather than playing a sofa doctor.

I have test results going as far back as 2013. If you are disputing what the doctors have said then I plan to take you to court over the way you’ve mistreated me. You went on a two-minute rant about everything you don’t like about me on my last day.Continue reading

 

Incompetent or overworked? I can’t decide!!

Location: United Kingdom
Job: Administration

L,

You’ve been working on our team for 6 weeks now and you left the company about a year before returning.

I find you very brash, loud and overbearing. Every single conversation is one you turn on to yourself and make it all about you. Why the managers chose you for the job I have no idea. I reckon they were overwhelmed by your complete and utter “me me me” attitude.

Why leave in the first place to come back anyway? Had trouble keeping a job elsewhere? Wouldn’t surprise me.Continue reading

 

Get a reference about your employers before you say yes

Location: Worldwide
Job: Nanny/au pair

I was a nanny/au pair with million-dollar clients and my advice is always before starting make sure you get past nannies’ references about the family you are sitting for. It swings both ways. It’s just as wise to know who you are looking after and why they left and how many they had, because the richer they are the meaner the cherubs are. Never again. I would do that with all jobs really.

 

You’re a f***ing fake

Location: UK
Job: Sales

X, I used to like you, until I realised you’re just like the rest of the fake-arsed motherfuckers in this place. Can’t wait for the boss to come in again soon so I can listen to your fake-arsed laugh, you selfish, self-centred c**t! Peace.

 

“It doesn’t make sense to pay you!”

Location: Los Angeles
Job: Administrative

This is the most fucked-up, unethical company I’ve come across in my career. There are several things to it.

First, the company wanted a slave, not an employee. For several months of working, I didn’t get paid for work I did. When I asked my manager to get paid for work, I was told: “It doesn’t make sense to pay you.”

When I finally got paid, it was the manager’s personal check, not the company check.Continue reading
