Record all of this (dates, times, samples of emails). File a complaint, along with some other managers to her superiors. In Australia you have a fair amount of protection over workace bullying, if I understand correctly.

 

Sorry – I was feeling angry for you and only got halfway before writing. I wonder if there is an outside agency you can complain to? Being screamed at is abuse, and legally shouldn’t be tolerated

Sorry that you have to put us with a boss like that.  🙁  Do you know how long she’s been in her position?  I’ve had a few unpleasant supervisors – one in particular comes to mind.  I stuck it out for several months and then the people at the top realized what was going on and they moved her to a position where she no longer supervised people.  In your situation, I’m sure it also looks bad for her if people under her keep quitting.  Anyways, if you don’t have a track record for quitting jobs really early, I don’t think it will be a big deal in the future.

@ms-valentine:  I wasn’t so much meaning an outside HR place as a legal place.. Legally you have the right to feel safe in your workplace? (I’m guessing. I’m kiwi and our laws are pretty similar)

This happened at my very first job. One of my supervisors was harassing me, bullying me, and singling me out. I filed complaints with my other supervisor, and the both of us filed complaints to their manager. I was called into the manager’s office and told that I needed to “respect” the supervisor and that the way that she was treating me wasn’t a problem (!!!). I quit shortly after that.

I don’t blame you for leaving. As far as what to say in an interview, what about.. the job wasnt what they portrayed it to be and I want to be with a company where I truly have room to grow (something along those lines =] ) good luck!
