Beyond the BS

Location: United States
Job: Dispatcher

This job is just sooo fucked up it’s ridiculous. The job itself is not a hard job but the ppl that work here make this job nearly impossible. It’s like High School 2.0 with a million principals and 2 or 3 students. Structure is shot to shit. We are micromanaged to the 3rd degree. They literally watch your every move like we work for the CIA when we do nothing even remotely close. All of the higher-ups kiss each other’s ass to keep the positions that they have. Everybody is out for themselves. We used to have fun and enjoy each other’s company now it’s like pulling teeth just to get through our schedule.Continue reading

 

8 months into a job

Location: Nation's Capital
Job: Analyst

So, I have been working at this place for 8 months and I am beyond frustrated.

1) they cut our staff
2) we are now two people in our group
3) government is pissed that we are not getting our work done faster
4) I just got my access on month 7 of employment.
5) my work hour days are now 12 to 18 hours…no overtime.Continue reading

 

Tyrant

Location: USA
Job: customer service

In my company, to apply to another job within the company you have to fill out an application form signed/approved by your current supervisor and your supervisor has to submit it to Human Resources. I’m sure my company isn’t alone in this but it is completely asinine.

1) I don’t want my boss knowing I want out
2) My boss likes to take her time submitting or forgets altogether (and on purpose I suspect)Continue reading

 

Every-fucking-thing.

Location: Uk
Job: Hospitality

I’m attempting a world record about how many times I can say fuck or variations of in one post.

Am I fuck, I’m just very sweary when I’m pissed off.

I’m sick to the back teeth of fucking working myself stupid, damaging my health, getting shit from smart-arse fucking customers, getting paid a pittance and still being told it’s not enough. Because they want to save on other wages to line their own pockets.Continue reading

 

That Serpent Slithering Again

Location: NA
Job: Office

I call her the Serpent at the office. She has this itch to stir up chaos. Her main job is to stay in her office and stay in her lane, but she has this twitch to walk in peoples lane and stir chaos. I’ve watched her for years and her pattern is the same. We are stuck with her because the other locations she’s tried to work for rejects her. With every new boss she races to paint ugly pictures of her prey. Then bosses believe her until she doesn’t get what she wants and hangs them later. I pray for this new boss that he is smart and I hope he’s alert at all times. Please boss I hope you don’t fall into her toxic trap. I hate toxic people.

 

Company management is overrated

Location:
Job:

Another bright day in the Italian countryside. Another early morning struggling to find a reason to wake up and go to work. “Come on, I can do it”, of course the sense of responsibility is stronger than my aversion to the job I’m called to do.

Little did I know that was the day I would have been given one of the finest proof of high-level company management by the boss and his closest coworker, the sister.Continue reading

 

The Case of the Invisible Supervisor

Location: USA
Job: Department Lead

I am one of the longest-employed people in a department lead role at a small company with what I estimate is 70% people who haven’t been there more than a couple of months. The turnover rate is ridiculous for a company that pays decently like this. People openly discuss how miserable they are and what jobs they have applied to lately.

I was here for several years and my department got taken over by a young girl who didn’t know how to manage and never bothered to learn how to do any of the jobs she was supervising. We hardly saw her at all, and I eventually started taking on some of her job until finally I was basically doing a supervisor’s job and was completely overwhelmed with that and my lead person responsibilities.Continue reading

 

Aggressive newbie

Location: London
Job: Administrative

I don’t get it. I genuinely don’t get it. We inherit what I can only describe as a very aggressive, rude, obnoxious and defensive member of staff as part of a redeployment programme and my life has been made a misery since.

Just some words of wisdom…Continue reading

 

WTF

Location: USA
Job: Manager/ babysitter

I am SO tired of this woman!

She’s old, been working at this place since it opened and has surpassed all management in this store. So, she believes that she is entitled to special treatment. I would say that is all in her head, but for some reason upper management will only slap her on the wrist for instances that she should have lost her job. She is pushy, lazy, controlling, manipulative and 100% selfish. Whenever she doesn’t get her way she calls upper management and HR and cries. I have caught her in so many lies it’s ridiculous. The worst part of all of this is that everyone else who doesn’t work close with her can only see a sweet old lady. So when I’m at my wits end with her people just look at me as the asshole because they don’t know how she truly is.Continue reading
