Oh how do I make this as short as possible? Well lets see first off, my husband got hired into the company he works for a little over a year ago. This job as been a lifesaver for us! Decent pay, benifits, 401k, piad vacation time, raises and even a Christmas bonus this year. Needless to say I would cut off my right arm before I let my husband leave or lose this job. This past Spring he transferred from one side of the state to the other so we could be more close to my family. Still all with this company. He is looking to move up the poll soon and get a better paying posistion. Hes been eyeing it for some time now. His old boss loved him and thought that he would do just fine if the job ever opened up. (And this boss isn’t a push over. I met her once and she came acrossed as VERY intimidating and by the book like) She gave a good reccomendation to the new boss and that was that.
We have been here now for about 6 months. In that time the new boss he had when he first moved here as since left. She also thought that if the job my husband wants ever opened up that he would be fit for it. She even said she wrote that in his file for the new lady who got hired in. Well about 2 months ago the newest boss comes along. In the first 3 weeks she fires one of the office ladies who seemed to be the hardest working lady they had and had been with the company for 4 years. No one know the full story of why the office lady got fired but they do know that she is now filing a complaint. Also in the first month that the newest boss was here, one of the men who has the job my husband really wants transferred elsewear leaving that job open. Before the guy left he trained my husband on things he felt he needed to know and gave him a heads up on everything about that job. My husband was sure he was finally going to get it. I was too.
Ok now for the loser whos trying to get my husband fired. This guy is the one that every office in America has. The slacking/lying/know it all but knows nothing/loser who trys to steal everyones ideas and make it his own. No one at my husbands job can stand this guy. They all warned my husband about him when he was transferred in and said to beware of the loser. Well unlucky for my husband he has to work with this guy for most of the day, everyday. Hes always using my husbands ideas and then running to the boss like its his own but still manages to hardly get anything done during the day. For some reason though, this new boss really likes this guy. That irriates the crap out of my husband. Well anyways when this new job opened up my husband (stupidly!) told this loser about it. So of course the loser says hes gonna go for it too. Well instead of the new boss saying that my husband deserves this because he has two other bosses who know that hes been working towards it and would do good at it, she pretty much makes my husband and the loser compete for a week for it. All in the mean time she is still taking applications from men on the street for it. When it came down to it she hired some guy in off of the internet and told my husband she just didn’t feel he was fit. GRRRRR…..! I was sooo pissed!
Fast forward to this past week. The loser is still being…well a loser and yesterday my husband didn’t do something exactly like the loser wanted so the loser runs to the boss and crys to her. (He has a tendancy to lie so he could of lied to her too). This morning the boss calls my husband into her office to tell him that he needs to do stuff her way and that the loser was right. She also accused him of being absent on the job saying “she couldn’t find him anywhere yesterday to tell him to come into work early this morning”. She told the loser to come in early which gave him overtime. My husband has been asking the boss for any overtime since day one. Both the loser and the boss have my husbands number to call him and let him know of stuff. During my husbands lunch I got a little mad at him (more because I was mad at her) and told him to just keep his mouth shut and do things the losers way. We CANNOT affored to lose this job. And I KNOW she knows that!
Well the absolute newest problem: Another guy from the office who has the job my husband really wants put in his two weeks about a week ago. The ONLY reason my husband knew this was because I found the job posting on the companies website which means that his boss didn’t even have the class to let my husband know the job is open again. Instead she goes straight to hiring someone else. Then when my husband asks her about it she just pretty much said that he won’t do good at it and wont get it. Today I look and the posting is down which means shes hired a new guy. I’m not sure what to tell my husband what to do about his boss or the loser.
Does any bosses or anyone knowledgable in situations like this have any advice? I’m so afraid she is just a mean spirited person looking to fire him for any reason. Shes young about 32 years old and doesn’t seem to be the most professional of people. I really just want to punch her and the loser in the face! Grrrr and cry =(
