I started working for a solar company Sunversity 2 weeks ago, as an apt setter. I would call home owners and businesses, and try to get them to set a free energy analysis. The thing is the leads they provided were horrible, a lot of fax numbers wrong number and disconnected numbers. So we had to start googling our own leads to use.
I decided to see who in my family and friends would be interested, I thought the company was a good one and I believed in it. So I wanted to see who I could help, that I knew. So out of my whole family my dad, mother in law, and husbands uncle were interested. So I gave him these leads last week. The owner said It was great and there was no problem doing it that way.
Fast forward to today, Its pay day and he hasn’t gotten any info to pay us such as social and tax forms. So while he’s trying to get this info from me and the other girl, we can’t be on the phones because we need to hear him. All of a sudden he goes off on me, telling me I haven’t closed a deal on the phone because I’m not on the phones. He’s not there half the time to tell if I am or If I’m not,but I am. The leads are just all screwed up!
So he goes on to tell me I’m not making my daughter a priority, I will always be living in my fathers effing house. The leads I’ve given him aren S**t, And I’ve probably heard this before and I will probably hear this again. He told me I should pack a bowl of weed in the morning because he doesn’t know whats wrong with me. All this in front of my co worker mind you. He then tries to belittle me by telling me how everyone else there is better than me.
I was caught so off gaurd I couldn’t even speak back. I texted my husband when the owner left and he told me to just leave, I quit by text soon after. But I’m so angry and so mad that he would think It’s okay to speak to another human being like that. I feel like he shouldn’t be able to get away with it, but then again what can I do?
Any advice bee’s ?

You should take him to court. I bet you have a case.

Yeah go above his head to the HR department of the leaseing company. Tell them, watch the shit hit the fan.

And document everything with the date, get it notarized with a signature of a coworker that will agree with you if you can.

I never thought of going to the HR of the leasing company that Is a very good idea. Even If I wasn’t up to his standards, I don’t understand why he wouldn’t talk to me one on one calmly. Or just fire me why belittle me? I’m afraid the other girl won’t help in a complaint because while he was going off one me, and In turn complimenting her she was all smiles.

First off no boss should EVER speak to you that way. Secondly even if he is not there they can track how many calls you are making. Thirdly, I would record him and send it off to youtube!!

My boss would always yell and I would yell back at him. I never allowed him to treat me that way. One day I told him he wasn’t paying me millions to put up with his bullsh$t. Ibeen working there 8 years and he no longers yells. We get along fine.

I have had quite a few bosses that were a*holes but never that bad. Things happen for a reason, you will find a job with an amazing boss. Were you selling solar panels? That seems like it would be a hard sell…

@Nessa2012: This. One of my bosses used to yell at and belittle me all the time. I started yelling back. We’re actually super friendly now. He’s told the whole management staff that I’m his favorite lol.
OP, no one should be allowed to speak to you in that way. What a dick.

Ugh, I feelyou. I’ve been in situations like that before but coldn’t quit as we needed the money. My HR once told me and a coworker that not only did we not deserve a small raise but that we we lucky to have jobs since we do so little for anone. Sorry you’re going through this.
