Because they want to see you fret- so don’t let her see you sweat!

If you were getting fired, you would know.  They should have a system for firing people, ie multiple warnings, less than satisfactory performance reviews, etc.  Most likely she just wants to discuss your workload.  🙂

Let us know how it goes!

I also hate ambiguous meeting notices.  How are you supposed to be prepared to discuss soemthing if you don’t know what you are discussing??

I also hate it when my boss calls me and is like, “Please come down to my office now.” just to ask me a question.  Why can’t you just ask the question over the phone??

It’s really awful when people do that, especially a boss.  Like when someone leaves a voicemail that just says “call me”. I get so stressed out and annoyed too.

Definitely nerve-wracking!! Hopefully, it either talking about your opportunity to grow or even a bonus for all the fabulous work you’ve been doing!

When my boss does that to me, I just respond and say “Could you let me know what this meeting is regarding so I can be sure to come prepared?”

Then I usually get my answer as to what the meeting is about.

Urgh! my old boss used to say “walk with me” when he wanted to have a super serious discussion. Then he would walk to the printer or out the front door and I would have to a) follow him and concentrate on not tripping over my own feet in nervousness and b) worry about everyone overhearing what he said. He was an amazing boss but I never liked hearing those words!!

ETA: KatNYC, that’s a great suggestion.

@PutABirdOnIt: Ugh, same. My dad and the CEO where I work both do that, I always get so nervous.
