~Lord Acton, 1887
A lot of managers get on power trips (both male and female). Often they get handed a position of authority, or create their own, and they don't know how to handle it. They don't understand or care about people. They think that being abusive is actually the way to get better production out of people, or they don't care about production at all and just want to lord it over others.
I don't understand this kind of behaviour. But I'm biased I guess. I was always a nice boss - too nice maybe (a consultant surveyed my staff once and reported that our office had exceptionally high moral - I was very proud of that). I realize that as a manager you can't be friends with the staff because the job is to get things done through others. But still, I think there are better methods of leadership than being abusive.
So this brings me to the point... Make sure you work for good leaders. Good leaders will be firm but fair. They will take the time to teach you. They will take the time to get to know you because they will want to know what motivates you. They will be patient with your mistakes, as long as you try.
I know it is really tough to get a job in this economy, but remember that a job interview isn't just them interviewing you - it is also you interviewing them.
More importantly, a job is not just a way to make money. It is also part of your life, usually a big part. Don't settle for being abused by your employers no matter what. No amount of money is worth that, in my view.
Okay thank you
I am wondering how to get it.
I have to work at 4 today and I am planning on just not showing up.
The person I am planning to put is working today, so calling work and asking for his number wouldn't make sense.
So I could either
- Go to work today at 4, write down his number from the list and then leave
- Go to work today and work my normal shift and get his number during that time
- Call him at work on Sunday when he is working but no managers are and ask him for his number then
I kind of want to do number 1 just because it will be funny and they probly won't realize what is going on for a while lol
And if they ask where I am going Ill just say brb lol
I love confusing people
But I think I should also call him on Sunday just to make sure he knows I am using him as a reference
