Default Re: Who's the worst boss you've ever had?

I worked for a small business, where the owners daughter would go to lunch at noon, and get back around 3:30-4:00 every day. When I told the owner about it(I was the manager), I was let go the next day...

FYI: they went out of business about a year later.... Shocking, I know.

Default Re: Who's the worst boss you've ever had?

I was a secretary at a corporate office and a job position became available for a Division Admin Asst. job, which was a big step up from what I was doing. I applied for it, but this guy had a bad reputation for being rude, mean, and will cut you down in a heartbeat. Only myself and another girl applied for the job. Needless to say I did get the job, but regretted it within the first few days of working for this man. This was a job that things happened in cycles and I needed to go thru the cycle to get the hang of what the department does. My boss had asked for a report. I was working on it and explained to him what I was doing, but he didn't give a crap. He beat his fists on my desk and in a rude and loud voice he said he wanted the GD report now! I told him not to talk to me that way and that I didn't deserve it. The Senior Admin Asst's cubicle was next to mine. When my boss finished his tirade she told me that if I wanted to report him as being verbally abusive that she'd support me. The whole thing was ridiculous.

Although this must not have taken place at mine because we had cameras inside our walk in.

Not really a bad boss, but I had a boss at a job I was working while in college that didn't understand why I wouldn't show up on Saturday's when he didn't tell me we were working until Friday at 4 when we were getting off. He had a meeting with me one day and asked where I was so I told him I had a softball tournament so I went to that since he didn't let me know before Friday. He told me the next time I would be fired. Months go by, they pull it again and I don't show up because I was going to a Carolina football game, didn't get fired. Matter of fact, they still call me during breaks in the school year and during the summer when they need help.

Default Re: Who's the worst boss you've ever had?

During a summer in Washington, I worked for a Pizza Hut that had a shady manager. He only put about half the orders into the computer, and split the undetected orders with us 50-50. Yeah, I know it was wrong as hell, but when you are a starving college kid trying to save up some money for the upcoming semester, you go along with it... I made about 1200.00 one week.
