Guest service associate

Location: Burleson
Job: Retail

A little history on me im 27….i worked in the oilfield for over 5 years was a heavy equipment operator, driven big rigs, drilled on a surface rig, been a rig hand and a welder so i know hard work but due to an unfortunate accident(had my hand broken twice and almost lost my thumb) i was forced to work locally, where the oilfield isnt happening and unfortunately i never got a callback until the gas station by our house told me they were hiring for a cashier so i figured what the heck right? i mean a job is better than nothing…..Well ive worked there now for about 6 months and in this time I;ve caught a manager talking bad about me on video to another associate, my girlfriend came in to get change to do laundry at our apartments and was turned away telling her she had to buy something (which is not our policy at all) Also ive had a 42 year old douchebag manager hit on my girlfriend (knowing damn well she was with me but not knowing she would tell me…p.s. my girl is a cosmetics manager/model so you know i have to deal with this sometimes but i never expected at my work) this same old ass manager (who wears a leg brace to work retail) hits on our 20 year old female associate who in turn came to me to make it stop….keep in mind im not a manager but i told him to stop which he never did. Now ive also got a 22 year old co-manager above me who i can honestly say has never worked an entire shift sober since ive started working there at first i thought it wasnt that big of a deal but now this guy is leaving work leaving me to do everything while he goes out and sells weed, sometimes he sells and solicits to our guest in our store, he pops way too many pills at work to the point where he has to leave early he drinks on the clock in our beer cooler and is always trying to manipulate me and every other co-worker that works there and the other day i caught him trying to illicit sex to a guest in our store who is honestly old enough to be both of our mothers. He is a fucking worm whom i just want to kick the shit out of he’s disrespectful and is sloppy and annoying im miserable there and the general manager who runs the place is so lazy, leaves early everyday, shows up late, throws trash on the ground and never acknowledges hard work or initiative. In fact, we just had an associate get fired because she sold beer to a TABC agent ungerage and instead of addressing what just happened or the loss of an good employee the general manager just tells me “well lets just put it like this you just got promoted” Im glad all my hard work means nothing and that i got promoted by default….Once i got this news that vulture ass co-manager who sells weed out of the store calls me and says that he recommended me and that in some way i owe him?….like i said he’s always trying to manipulate me and do whatever he can to get leverage on me…..someone please help me because now they got me feeling obligated to stay and all i want to do is explode…and before you say “find another job” there isnt anywhere ive found to be hiring locally here and upon that little promotion to full time they actually called me and asked if i was planning to stay and not wanting to let anyone down so i said yes the only good thing about this shitty ass job is that now i have medical insurance which is something i now need very badly and honesty makes me feel trapped A.F. any ideas? P.S. ive called H.R. to help but that only made things worse the now management resents me. I’m so tired of this place.


Trojan Horse Dressed UP as a CEO

Location: New York
Job: Private Equity

As a woman in the industry, I was taught early on how to lift people up, motivate and cultivate positivity, results and creativity. I have encountered the antithesis of this, if you may, the destroyer of the word collaboration. This CEO who is a name dropping, oh my best friend is everyone, arrogant woman has stepped on my necks and thrown plenty under the bus to get her 5 million dollar apt. Her MO is to belittle and intimidate, although those who are smarter realize she’s a child who wants attention and can’t handle confrontation. She does not motivate or want women to grow in their career or be an example. She de-motivates, unravels and has he distinction of being a maniacal liar. Her infantile out bursts and demeanor is deplorable and I can imagine her own children don’t like her. She’s unlike able. An egocentric, immature Trojan horse who thinks by devaluing people she can control them. Joke is on you, you’re not immune to failure and mistakes and I’m embarrassed to know how horrible you are to your own gender. Your a gross example of how people are out for themselves. Good luck with that


Cheap suit wearing douche rocket!

Job: Drone

“Who made the call?” “We’re not ready yet.” You square headed piece of shit, you said 5:00 P.M. I understand you suck the cocks and worship everyone that is associated with the other program but FUCK YOU! I knew from the time you were transferred here last year you were a fake ass piece of shit. Just like the phony bastard you answer to who now hides behind the scenes. Unlike you I don’t walk around pretending to look busy. I’m putting up with shit that you run away from. How fucking dare you look at me like I’m nuts after initiating something at a certain time when YOU authorized it! I cannot WAIT to quit this shit hole organization. No wonder so many people quit or just stopped showing up since your fake ass got here.


Will my time ever come?

Location: Australia
Job: Clerk

So is it just me, or do other people feel like they are constantly overlooked at work? We have just been told that we are over budget with staffing and that there is no way that I will get a promotion. That’s fine I understand that, I get it, I like to think I am a smart cookie. Then the next second, one executive has been promoted to level 2 and an additional executive level 2 is hired as well, Wtaf? I have been trying to get my two staff members promoted to the next level for 6 months now and I personally have not had a promotion for 5 years. I am always the first to take on more work when needed and my staff are always happy and engaged. But because I am not prepared to blow smoke up anyone’s bum and because I advocate for my staff, I have again, been overlooked. Just when two other ladies I work with that are in other teams have been given promotions that are warranted. Why can I never be in the team that promotes fairly and honestly? I am really happy for the other two girls but inside I am dying and feel like bursting into tears. I apply for every promotion that I can and ask for feedback on what I can do to improve my chances, and I never get one. I know it isn’t a take turn thing, but when you have paid your dues and done everything right , surely that should be rewarded too?


A losing strategy

Location: Chicago, IL
Job: Customer Service Representative Level 1

TLDR: mostly good employees, bad policies that undercut the possibility of good staff, company values attention to extreme minutiae over customer satisfaction and performance, I was let go for trifles, my manager was an abysmal failure. Most of the people I worked with were your typical young, fun, cheerful people. I myself am very outgoing and by the end of my first week out of training, I had made friends with almost everyone on the customer service floor, including managers and supervisors. (Managers are are like mini-bosses of a section of about 7-10 people. Supervisors are basically the managers’ assistants) I should have been more concerned when about 15 more people in addition to my 8-strong training class were hired within three weeks, and that there was a permanent training staff on the payroll, but I ignored those warning signs and focused on my work satisfying customers instead. I’m a people pleaser, and just meeting me you’d see that. You can hear my smile and my genuine concern over the phone, I can’t help that I care, it’s my personality.

Los guess what fucking mummy you have been eating my shit asshole!



Location: USA
Job: Lab Tech

I am frustrated with some of the laziness at work. It’s not horrible, since the people who loaf around will actually do something if you ask them to. But it is so frustrating to constantly be worried about getting things done on time and whether or not product is going to fail when you see people openly sitting around texting and surfing the net on their cell phones. Another real downer is that the boss who we really like has just left for another location in the same company. We really enjoyed working with her. Anyway, that’s it !


Fundraising for my salary

Location: UK
Job: Charity worker

I work for a charity and I don’t understand why we are constantly encouraged/forced to join in on fundraising activities in the office. I’m treated like an outcast when I object, which is ironic considering the cause we are supposed to be working for. I just don’t understand what the point is of me handing money back to my employer – are they paying me or am I paying them? I don’t want to take part in ‘forced fun’. Believe it or not, I have actual work to do. I spend more than enough of my time surrounded by people too worthy for their own good who think that tweeting anything with a hashtag is making the world a better place. I certainly don’t want to spend an hour crammed into a tiny meeting room with them eating their dry, tasteless cakes.

Job: Management

Why am I the one who gets to clean up other peoples bad work and then get no fucking credit for it?
