Reddit thread about a crazy toxic evil boss manager fires employee after going through her purse and finding a job application

Toxic Boss Looks Through Employees Purse, Fires Her After Finding Job Application

So many bosses want excessive access to their employees in manners that cross some boundaries. On the first day of my first restaurant job, I asked one of the assistant managers if I could leave at 9 PM since, on the schedule, my shift ended at 9 PM. He laughed at me, said, “it's good you didn't ask that when the manager was around,” and we continued working. At the time, I felt like such an idiot because I had never had a job before, so I assumed all jobs were like that. Now I just realize thi…

Sometimes you miss glaringly obvious red flags during the interview process. Sometimes the interviewer is entirely dishonest about what you can expect to find in your new role. Then, once you start working, you are suddenly faced with the horrifying reality of what you just signed on for. The best thing to do at this point is to walk away and not fall into the losing game that is the “sunk cost fallacy." If you're getting that feeling in your stomach that early on then you will be doing everyon…

Company Bans Job Hunters From Reapplying For 12-Months After Failing "Personality Test"

When I was applying for jobs, I was a bit skeptical of any job that asked me to take a personality test before the interview. I understand wanting to hire somebody with good vibes, but isn't that what multiple rounds of interviews are for? You would think companies might do such a test to understand someone's temperament and working style to ensure they're right for this position. That, unfortunately, is not usually the purpose. Although it's quite a shady practice, many jobs that use “personal…

I have only quit a job once in my life, and technically I was still training. I was thrown into the fire at a West Village seafood restaurant, which has since closed, and left to burn. At the time, the only bartending experience I had was pouring wine into the glasses of elderly customers. They decided to train be by having me be the sole bartender on a Friday night service. Needless to say, it didn't go well. I walked out. Despite my experience, it's pretty rare to hear about someone up and qu…

Perfect attendance awards in school are a very tricky beast. There were definitely years in school where I never missed a day, and I was encouraged by my family and teachers to be proud of that. However, I didn't have perfect attendance in 2nd grade because I was particularly special or gifted. I only had perfect attendance because I was lucky. I didn't get sick, and no external factors kept me from school for those days. I accomplished nothing substantial, and yet I got praised for it. Concept…

Treasurer Withholds Employees Check From October, Says He'll Get it in December

There's nothing worse than waiting to get paid by a shady corporation . When I worked at a restaurant during my senior year of high school, my boss told me that the clock-in system was broken. He told me not to worry and that he would ensure I got the time I worked during those shifts accounted for. I did as I was told and didn't clock in for about 5 or 6 shifts during the Christmas season. Little did I know that I would never see any of that money from those shifts. I don't know if my boss for…

Working a thankless customer service job can be grueling. You get regularly disrespected by both customers and your boss . Customers might yell at you or even in rare situations throw a glass at your head, but they typically don't pose real danger to your safety. They come in, they ruin your night, and then they leave. Your boss is much more likely to put you in unsafe situations due to their negligence. Sure, they might not intend to hurt you, but they do hurt you just the same through inane p…
