My old boss was a real douche. He didn’t do a damn thing all day except hover over us to make sure we were working and surf the internet. He used to verbally harass my co-worker and I on like a weekly basis (always super mature penis comments). It amazes me he lasted as long as he did.

We work for the corporate office of a retail chain and there was not a single person (except for his wife who worked in another department) who liked him (we’re talking well over 300 corporate employees). Even the higher ups hated him. Thankfully he was canned over a year ago. I did a happy dance that day.

Based on the info you’ve given, I would be looking for another job. For starters, not having any vacation or sick time is bullshit but then having to deal with an asshole of a boss for not very much money and no benefits… I’d be out of there.

Good luck!

I know the job market is tough, especially for admins (I know because every company I’ve worked for has been slowly laying off all admin type jobs and making execs do their own admin work) but that is no excuse to have to take verbal abuse. You can file a complaint and search for a new job in the meanwhile. Good luck!

Good luck with the interview…

To your OP

I’ve had a boss that was like that. A Doctor… he was like a 2 y/o tyrant. It was absolutely terrible how he was to all of us… even his NP…. Him and his NP would have arguments, yelling down the hall at each other while I was getting pts vitals in the rooms….. it was Great! pfft.

Lets just say I wasn’t there for long… I left an abusive husband and I surely wasn’t going to pick up an abusive workplace. lol

@Mrs.Firefly1: Thanks… It was a really hard decision as it’s the only job I’ve left where I didn’t have another job already lined out… I totally quit on the spot after a pretty emotional straining and ridiculous incident where the NP approached me saying that Dr said (out of no where) if I didn’t get matching scrubs by the next morning to the girls already there (mind you most were already discontinued) then there was no point in me coming in. I called my friend & mom at lunch in tears b/c there was NO way I could get 100s of dollars worth of uniforms for the next day.. I talked it out and decided to let them know and apologize that I wasn’t able to do what was expected. When I came back after lunch and explained that there was no way for me to do this she kinda laughed and said… “Oh he didn’t mean it.”.. I then told her I was resigning and I would not be there the following day.

I see an add for there office every other month for the position I had…. he’s terrible… noone stays and everyone that was there (some long before I got hired) have since left as well.

It’s a very tough situation for sure and my heart goes out to all of you in that position!

I’ll defintiely be praying that you have some awesome favor with the boss/interviewer at this other position and that you’ll be able to get into an envoriment that can appreciate all you do…. happy employees = better workers 😉

@Mrs.Firefly1: Oh yay! I hope you’re able to get it. Just remember that when you leave… really leave… I wouldn’t really talk about how bad they were to anyone… except someone thinking about working there.. and then I’d just “advise against it”. Don’t do like they’ve done.

Goodluck to you!!!!! I’m sure you’ll do great!!!!! Laughing
