It’s out there. I hate his boss.
His boss runs a company that deals in computers, before my DH graduted with his 4 year degree, he took on a part time job with the hopes that it would become full time. Well, eventually after much prodding and pushing… it did.
I geniunely wish something else fell in his lap.
The pay is crap IMO. He makes less than 30,000 and puts up with so much…
The boss is one of those people like doesn’t like to pay people. For example, instead of having someone work HR part time, the boss feels she can do it herself. So anytime DH needs a paystub or ANYTHING hr related, he must go through his boss. Sometimes he cannot get into meet with her because she’s in meetings all day. So the topic will go unbroached for a week or so. He needed to change the deductions on his w2, it took over a month for her to do it. She also doesn’t want to hire anyone to do customer service, so ontop of building websites, backing them up, and meeting with clients to discuss these needs, DH is the one getting the phone calls from pissed off customers. That’s right, he answers all of their phone calls.
So now, he’s supposed to leave at 5:00. Yet, he was told today that he “absolutely must” get a website completed from stratch before the end of the day at 2:00 when he’d never even heard of it. Then, he is also told to fix a coworkers computer issue and call tech support. He’s still on the phone with them. It’ll be hours before he gets home.
Normally, this wouldn’t piss me off as much. Work happens. Sh*t happens. Yet, he was a few hours late to work from going to an ultrasound with me. He thought he’d made up all of the time. He was about 30 minutes off. She brought this up to tell him to make it up. Yet, does he get overtime? No. Is he expected to stay over? Hell yes.
She also raises her voice to him. Which he finally admitted the other day. A client was having a server issue and the problem was not their companys. Anyways, the client complained to the boss about my DH, and instead of asking him what happened, she yelled at him. Finally, she realized it wasn’t his mistake and he stayed totally professional. But did she apologize? no.
Also, she promises things she doesn’t follow through on. For example, they were supposed to discuss his raise the first of the year. I know, I know…It’s January. But I KNOW it wont be brought up until at least March.
They were also supposed to talk benefits. 401 K, insurance, etc. Everything was supposed to hit in January. Nooope. This woman takes months. DH has to make appointments with her to discuss it all and it makes him so nervous he gets actual anxiety.
I hate his boss. I like 100% professional people. Treat your workers right, don’t take on too much (aka: don’t have a god complex), and keep your promises.
I try VERY hard not to complain to DH about it, because it just makes him more anxious. He knows she sucks. To top it all off, he signed a no compete contract and cannot do the same job legally within 200 miles. Not sure how well it would hold up in court. But yeah… Nothing I can do about that now.
So here I am, DH should have been home. He’ll be stressed when he gets home…and I need to vent about his boss because she’s awful.
I’m not really looking for solutions, just to vent. Somedays DH loves his job, but there are days and weeks like today where he doesnt. More than anything, they are wasting his talent! It’s really hard to stop the pitbull in me from coming out and protecting him… yet, it wouldn’t be professional and he’d just get fired….hence the much needed vent.
I really do feel better though! Kind of… I just love him so much that anyone treating him without the respect he deserves angers me.
