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.

Laziness

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.

 

Why

Location: Australia
Job: Management

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

 

Evil Student

Location: Saint Charles
Job: Substitute Teacher

I am a very lenient sub. I let students use their cell phones, I always let them work together, I will play relevant YouTube videos, but today while subbing in one hour a female student coughed cancer patient and everyone laugh. She then asked what was wrong with me because I look like I’m dying. I am a cancer patient and I don’t understand what could have prompted this type of behavior from a student. The next hour I had a male student say that fucking me would be like fucking a skeleton. Are parents no longer raising their kids with empathy or just plain courtesy? These were high school juniors and seniors by the way.

 

You make me sick

Location: US
Job: Non-profit worker

Every day my manager breezes in and greets her favourites with a hug and a loud rundown of her tedious evening or weekend. She’s seated me with my back to them all just to make me feel like part of the team. Well thank fuck I’m not one of you. You are a mean, nasty, useless bitch – you couldn’t care a less about me or any of my common sense ideas but you surround yourself with subordinate minions who like nothing better than to stroke your ego. If they bent you over and licked your arse openly in the office I would not be surprised. You work for a non-profit but you spend our members’ money like it’s going out of fashion – it’s called ‘networking’ apparently. Well it’s funny that you don’t ever seem to bring any money in yourself even though that’s your job. Hey, at least you get to put on a posh frock and flirt with a bunch of ugly old men a couple of times a month which seems to be your favourite pastime. You are meant to be someone we should all look up to because you’ve been around since the dinosaurs and have a few letters after your name – well frankly I think you talk shit and I couldn’t care a less about how ‘important’ you think you are. You make me sick.

 

One rule for one…

Location: South London
Job: Record keeping/Admin

Fed up with one rule for one and another rule for others especially when the lazy good for nothing has a reputation for taking four times as long as the next person and still screws it up. Management are fully aware of his laziness but do nothing. He’s even been “moved” from team to team because he’s no good. They had the perfect chance to get rid of him when there was a re organisation and his post was deleted. What did they do? Help him into a higher graded job!!! So now he’s getting paid more to do less. Not bloody fair. So bloody not fair!
