my manager makes me want 2 leave, do u like urs?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
its the stereotypical thing, not to likt your manager, but i really dont, i have such a problem with him

i work in a shop where sales can be about 20 products, or one or two, so scanning something twice can be easy, but i always void it off,

but there is a button price enquiry - someone wants to know how much something is, you press the button and scan and it shows the price

my boss got me in the office, to ask me why i had done 40 price enquirys - how the hell do i know, i was on the tills all bloody week! it seem alot but he made me feel shit, for such a petty thing!

sounds ott, but i just want 2 quit and get a new job, but my pay is good, and so is my hours i just dont lik emy boss grrr, and i dont know if 2 look for a new job, i know i wont get hours/pay as good as what i have

    Yeah, you could try having a word with your boss to try and sort out the situation. But if that doesn't work and things are still less than desirable, then start looking for another job just to see if there's anything out there that also offers good hours and decent pay, like you're getting now. After all, you won't know unless you look! Even if you don't really want to quit at this point, assessing your alternatives will be a good way to figure out what exactly you want to do. Hope that helps <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I work in a shop too and have to do price enquiries sometimes, you can't memorise the price of everything. If he says anything to you again just explain that to him.

    I'm pretty lucky tho cos I get on well with my boss. It'd be horrible going to work if I didn't.

    I used to get on so well with my bosses, then they gave up the license for the pub (i dont know why, they'd only been open 3 months) and a relief manager was bought in, he was horrible and made me feel completely useless, in the end i left. That was only part of the reason but its horrible working somewhere you dont get on with people, it doesnt matter if they're your boss or just someone else who works there. <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    most managers are not nice because they know that nobody likes them,To check the price for something if you dont know it is the right thing to do, It dont matter how many times you do it.The important thing is not to over charge the customer. You need to remind you boss that the customer comes first.

    You just need to weigh the advantages against the disadvantages to decide what is the best course of action.

    If you feel you are being bullied or harassed then you should get your union involved.....

    when i started at this place i work at, this woman got me down so far i almost topped myself because of the added pressure of college and trying to hold my family together...it wasnt till she had moved to another area (the store in the other area needed extra people) that i was told she wasnt even supposed to be in that department, and more importantly, it was part of MY job to tell her what to do. the fact that i had been lied to about her being my manager really pissed me off and im fucking glad the temp contract ended after 5 months.
    if you feel you're being picked on by your manager then definately go to someone above him/her and complain. theres not much they can do (cant exactly beat you up can they?) and if nothing happens and the bad treatment continues just tell them to fuck off and that they can find someone else because you aint puttin up ith it anymore and go find a new job.
    good luck

    I work at Tesco (yay?) and most of the managers are ok except for a few bad eggs with major attitude problems.
    My not-quite-current manager, who gave me the job, was really cool. He treated all of us like equals and we were always joking around, the whole department.
    He just left for another department and I duno what the new manager is like yet.

    But I'd say that getting on with your manager has alot to di with how much you enjoy your job and how much you actually do.
    The deputy manager for my section is such a complete bitch, everyone hates her and she inspires zero motivation in me or anyone else.

    So if you like your manager you're more likely to work properly cos you don't want to give them any more pressure than they already have.

    But this bitch has a serious grudge against me, fortunately she's rumoured to be leaving in september so I've only got to put up with the bitch for 4 more months.

    Sorry to hijack your thread Posh*Bird, just had to get that off my chest. Anyway if he carries on being a prick then just stand up to him.
    If that don't work then it looks like u may be in the same situation as me and he's just chosen you to pick on.

    When I used to work as a technician at PC World in Blackburn (sniggers all round then?), I had a few different bosses. My immediate superior was okay most of the time, but could be condescending. The general manager seemed nice enough, but only because he got his deputies to do his dirty work for him.
    I eventually left (read: was pushed) because I had a few disagreements with management and I didn't hesitate to state my opinions.

    You should discuss your feelings first with the manager in question. If you go over his head without talking to him first he's likely to take ubmrage and may try to make your life difficult.
    If talking to him doesn't work, talk to his superior.

    Remember, if he does start bullying you all the time or anything like that, threatening to make an official complaint is also a good way to show that you mean business.

    My only point would be that if you keep causing trouble for him, even if it's his fault in the first place, he's likely to try and find any reason he can to get rid of you (my bosses tried to accuse me of theft, but that's another story).

    Stand up to him, but make sure you remember your limits.

    I'm lucky to have had a sucession of good managers, but I've experienced bad managers too.

    Look on this as management training, learn from the good <STRONG>and</STRONG> the bad ones and you'll know what you should and shouldn't do.

    My mate (yes it was my mate and not me before anyone asks)was in the pub drinking with all the people from his work, now his boss was being a prick and trying to show him up and kept flicking my mates head so my mate did what anyone would do.... knocked the fuka clean out, but because of the situation and the fact he had just sparked his boss clean out (even outside of work hours) he was made to leave, now that sucks.
    So i reckon you should have a word with your boss and then kick him in the nuts!!!! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Yeah my boss kinda pisses me off, almost to the point where i just wanna say something abusive to him.

    I work in and about a car deeler place, i spend quite a bit of time in an office with serveral other workers, the girl and the other bloke i work with are sound, but my boss is an arsehole. He thinks he's the man, hes on a power trip, he says things like "im the most laid back boss you will ever meet huh" when he clearly isnt, the most annoying thing is he hates not being the centre point of a conversation, and not being mr attention, and uses his status to make sure he isnt. Like he makes everyone stop work and take notice to his ramblings about how great he is at snooker, but as soon as i have a small conversation with my fellow worker which doesnt include him he looks up and tells us to get some work done despite us working and talking. He goes out his way to make sure he is the only person anyone is allowed to talk to.

    I dont know wether to hate him or pitty him, i can see signs of him having some shit happen to him when he was younger or something, and now hes 30 and has a good status in his job he uses it to control people.

    Only advice i can give is to try and ignore your boss, and think to yourself who the fuck is this person to make me wanna quit a job i actualy quite enjoy. Soon as you step out of the workplace you are an equal
