Workplace Bullying

Being bullied by a boss or co-worker is no fun. Draw from these job experiences to help learn what to watch out for, or improve your situation.
When I thought it was getting better By overit

I work at a clinic and deal with some of the most bizarre, yet mean people I have ever met. My boss harshly criticizes everyone and never admits when she is wrong, blaming everyone else for her mistakes. She is rude and always interrupting everyone. Another coworker is lazy and never does a thing, while I'm working my but off, and she is the star of the place. How does that even make any sense? I feel singled out a lot because I am new. In addition, another coworker is always angry and takes her anger out on others. Every day I walk in and have no idea what I will end up getting, the angry or happy coworker who will not be a bully the whole time. It is just far too draining and sometimes I just wish I could tell everyone off and walk out.

GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE (BIG LIARS) By iknowthetruth988

I know who the individual is in these posts and who all they are talking about. I witnessed it. She is telling the truth. This woman was sexually harassed, set-up and lied on all the time.

I felt so bad for her as she was always nice and polite to me. Let her go over some bulls**t rumors and stuff they could never prove and when they could not prove most of the lies, they started trying to make stuff up to back up all what they were doing and had done, putting other people up to it and everything. Such a shame.

If there was anyone that did not go along with the evil doing, they tried to come after them too or at least coerce. I would not necessarily say that the place is all bad, but the majority of the Management there is and most of the employees as well, who quite frankly go along with the stuff even though they know it is wrong.

They should definitely do some restructuring. A lot of the managers and higher ups should be and should have been fired a long time ago. If there wives at home only knew the stuff that they do or attempt to do at work. I was proud of this person as she stood up for herself and did not let them pressure her into things that were wrong. I wish all women were like that on jobs, maybe these men in management would stop.

Damn!! I thought my job was bad. I once thought of applying there, and so glad I didn't. I would definitely not want to deal with stuff like that. Most of these men on these jobs are dreadful, but it be the women who allow them to do the stuff that they do making it hard on the ones that don't.

I worked at a job where this guy in management kept harassing this young girl and would not leave her alone, threatened her job and everything, when she did not comply he got pissed off and tried to get her fired and then tried to make like it was something mutual going on with them, when all he was doing was lying to cover his ass from getting fired. He was such a Loser. I am glad she did not take that stuff off of him and he got let go because he eventually tried it on someone else.



By Anonymous:

yep, this post is true. I use to work there and saw and heard a lot of stuff they were doing. From what I saw the person in this post did not do anything, just came to work and did their job. Just created a lot of situations purposely and made up a lot of lies to get back at the woman to cover themselves. Most of the stuff did not even add up and or make sense. So you could tell it was not true. Telling one lie, over another lie, over another lie. Look like most of it was just out of plain resentment and jealousy. There are some miserable people that work at that place. Most of them in management, simply abusing their authority, harassing and bullying people and putting other people up to doing it too. Would be sometimes a very hostile environment. Most of the men, married and all think the women are there purely for them and the Human resource dept. is a joke.



By knowitall2all:

I can definitely feel this post and all the others I read and quite frankly believe every bit of it. I once worked at a GOVERNMENT job where the management kept trying to get me to train another person, but tried to make it seem like I was not being a Team Player. When I knew all the time what they were up to. It was a ploy and or attempt to get me to pass over everything I knew so they could replace me and pay whoever less money, but they tried to make it seem like I was withholding information. "I am like give me a freaking break! Anyone would sense in their head knows when a company and or organization is trying to get ride of them". My stance on the situation. I was not trained when I got the job to which they did not provide any and learned absolutely everything on my own. Also, in the midst of it all that had clueless managers who was more concerned with you on a personal note than providing you with a healthy and fostering environment so you could be the best at your job. It was like being in a high school with a bunch of bobble head management who tried to feed off of you, because they did not have a clue as to what they were doing. How could they? They were more focused on your ASSets than your assets than you doing your job.
Throughout that time I put up with a lot of BS, until it just got ridiculous, but stayed because I cared about my job despite the things that were being done. There were no schemes or tactics involved on my behalf unlike what they were doing to me; however, I was just plain and simply protecting a job I worked so hard and put so much of effort into. I mean who wouldn't? "That's just common sense". It is easy to misinterpret things and have a false opinion when you do not have a clue about what all surrounds a situation or simply as to how your employees feel or feel about their jobs. Instead of providing the neccessary information, tools and the opportunity for a person to develop or evolve to foster and become greater at that their job, they chose simply to try to lump it away and pass it over to someone else. That often happens when you have lack of communication, understanding or simply do not care, and that place had A LOT of that. In that environment it was hard to maintain a job when you had people who resented you, felt threatened by you and were jealous to the point of "attempting" to always bring you down to up themselves. Ultimately, feeling they deserve to have your job more than you do just because they were brainwashed or had delusions of thinking so. It is funny how someone can purposely make it seem like you can not do your job, but then want you to "TRAIN" someone else. If a person is made to feel or set-up to give the impression like they could not do their jobs, then why would you want them to "Train" someone else. Does not make sense. Was just propaganda BS.
They always, always contradicted themselves because they were such liars, schemers and deceivers. This would make anyone feel disenchanted or unmotivated of working on a job, when you know there is a "witch hunt" of people and management aggressively behind your back trying to sh**t you out of your job with all kinds of schemes but try to play it off like it is a business reason. BS! I witnessed a ton of incompetent people who did half ass work while working there to the point of screwing up royally, but guess what they are still working there. Funny how 10% is just showing up and doing a half ass job and the remaining 90% is ass kissing and throwing people under the bus to get ahead or maintain a job there. MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE FOCUSED INSTEAD IN COLLEGE OF GETTING AN ASS KISSING AND THROWING PEOPLE UNDER THE BUS DEGREE. You can get ahead on any job with just simple hard work and not a lot of shady competitive, malicious tactics.
And the place was like GOSSIP CENTRAL, with a bunch of miserable, jealous old hags who did not have nothing better to do but talk bad about other people. I was surprised any work got done. Had a jealous and dingbat of a manager that tried to steal and take credit for everything that I did, even the ideas I had. Sad. However, it got to a point, after dealing with all the rubbish where I just did not care anymore and would have happily "HAPPILY" passed the job over to whomever, but was not going to subject myself to a conflicting situation of training someone else when I knew they were scheming all along to put my job in the hands of somEone else anyway with also totally twisting the entire matter to make me look like the bad guy to fuel their own agendas. "I just did not give a damn anymore". After all I dealt with, what person in my shoes would have? Stupid and or easy to influence people will believe anything, when they are manipulated and brainwashed into doing so.
The day I no longer worked for that place was literally "THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE"!! and would not even flinch of the idea for a second of returning. After all what was said and done, tried to give me sideways reasons behind all their shady doings. "I AM LIKE, PLEASE JUST LET THE SITUATION GO AND JUST GO AWAY!! I REALLY DID NOT WANT TO HEAR IT AND STILL DON'T. Side Note: Sometimes it is just best for managers, companies or organizations to just plain and simply "MOVE ON".



By juststopppingby:

I heard about that place. I had a cousin that worked there a while back.Crazy environment and the managers are awful. They told me it was the worst experience they ever had and put a bad taste in their mouth of ever wanting to work for another government job. They quit just under two years.

my daily nightmare By julia

I work as a housekeeper in a hospital, it is not as glamourous as it seems. I work at night.43 rooms a night. most staff are leaving or gone when I get to work. I pass a reception area on way to my closet, and let me say, there are nice nurses. but one likes to treat me like I'm "retarded" because of my job.even before this began,she talked down too me, I knew she was very superficial,flirtacious w/ male staff, (to the point of embarrassing herself) and "image" was her top priority. this is also the same woman who holds "prayergroups" during breaks, is a deacon at her church. she is, I will say, a skilled worker. but... she likes to call people out,bully. she likes to be the center of the universe.she's very territorial of this "image" she has created for herself. and if she sees you as a threat,she'll use everything in her arsenal to destroy you, your reputation. when she found out (where) I come from, a pretty affluent suburb outside of Detroit, that's when I became her latest target. who cares. she's a nurse, I'm-in housekeeping.I don't have her work status, but I take pride in what I do. f.y.I. the house I grew up in was my parent's. she belittles me infront of staff, going as far as following me in hallways doing an exaggerated "retard-speak" vocal immitation of me. we have new nurses, and because of her example,they talk down to me, and make faces,exaggerated facial expressions at me, when they see me. older nurses, that I once got along with, smirk, play along to her example, probably out of fear that she would do the same to them. reporting such behavior here, I've found is futile, she has status, whereas, someone from my dept, we're nothing. what hurts, is staff members who witness these events and do nothing.

Please don't use "retarded" in a pajorative manor. It is a diagnosis, not an insult.
The woman is a bore, please don't stoop to her level by also using insulting language.
I do hope she gets a come-upance and some point.



By julia:

i'm sorry for using the wrong term. i was trying to explain (what) happens. thank you for caring enough to leave a comment.



By dizzblnd:

Ignore her and your other ignorant co-workers. If you can't do that, go along with her jokes and immature actions. Make fun of yourself. Once she sees that her actions aren't getting to you, she'll stop. No different than elementary and high school. If it persists, go to HR and tell them she is creating a hostile work environment. If that has no affect, keep climbing the supervisor ladder until you find someone who will actually do something about it.
Even if you think reporting her is futile, you will find someone who can help. Just be persistent. There is no reason, other than the fact that she is harboring self-hate, that she is acting like that. She obviously needs to clear up her own personal issues that she is taking out on you.

Good Luck!



By HaveADamnNiceDay:

You have a pretty clear view into her true personal character.
The best way to know a person's character is to watch how they treat those who can do nothing for them.
It sounds to me like she is insecure about something and is making an effort to distract from it with other things, and unfortunately, you're her target. What she doesn't realize, is that without our jobs, our money, our status, what are we? We are our relationships, our character, hearts and minds.
Try to stay strong, and if you can find something better, do so!

Working in the Gulag By disarminglyhonest

Today I was told by my "supervisor" that I had been "written up" by a coworker. I have been in this field for 33 years and I presently working for a company that allows anyone to make a complaint about a coworker and it is treated seriously by "management". I have an extremely reliable witness who has nothing to gain by taking either side but his input is not wanted. Instead I am told that this latest accusation in combination with other distorted and at times totally fabricated versions of interactions constitute a pattern of "lateral violence" that is worrisome and requires counseling in order for me to keep my job.
Since I started at this present job 2 years ago I have been constantly bullied and treated differently from the rest of the department. I have more experience and better clinical skills than others in the department, especially my "supervisor". No one in our department respects her as a person or as a supervisor yet when we have gone to management about her we were told that whatever she says we have to do. She has their complete backing. She abuses her position to benefit her and her best drinking buddy's schedules. The preferential treatment is very blatant.Every on in the department talks about it. So is her discriminatory treatment of myself. Other people have noticed both. My emotional health had deteriorated to the point that I was worried that I would not be able to continue work, I did not want to leave the house, I wasn't eating and lost a lot of weight.
I have gone to HR about the situation, providing emails that contradicted each other pointing out her lack of integrity. The emails were completely ignored.
This is a facility that breaks laws daily in their poor care of patients. Since I have been there I have been able to affect some changes but have been labeled a troublemaker because of this.
I am frequently ignored if I try to join in a conversation or else I am answered very rudely. I have never encountered such an environment before. I hate to just give up and leave. I know that my supervisor would like this to happen so that her drinking buddy can transfer to my shift. I work more hours than anyone else in the department. I stay late if needed and go out of my way to treat my patients the way that I would like to be treated. My actual supervisors are very pleased with the work that I do.
The company's mission statement basically mimics the Gold Rules. I actually live my life by that rule and I struggled to not laugh when I was told by my lazy, stupid lying supervisor that I was not exhibiting these rules, which 99 percent of the employees, including herself, never exhibit.

So, according to you "everyone" talks negatively about others. And yet, you are left out of conversations. Your use of quotation marks suggests your attitude towards your suppervisors. You admit you engage in negative talk about your supervisor. You admit you complain to HR about your supervisor.
And yet, you seem perplexed that your supervisor has any sort of negative feelings about you.
You say the place you work is basically crap. More negative talk.
Do you say anything positive ever about work or at work?
Perhaps you should take a look at yourself and ponder how your attitude and actions might be fueling these situations. You can't change others only your reaction to others.
If you keep doing the same thing and keep having lousy days, perhaps it is time to do something different.



By wageslave:

To Whatever,
Obviously the poster is griping about the workplace. Why are you attacking him/her?



By labtech:

Management wants you out. They'll get their way, sad to say it but there it is. Start looking for a new job. Don't say anything negative about your supervisor where anyone from work can hear you say it. You can try writing up other coworkers, but honestly, your efforts are better placed somewhere else, such as in finding a new job. I'd even have a friend claim to be a prospective employer calling them for your references (tape the conversation) and see what is said about you, if they're as toxic as your post suggests no doubt they will try to blackball you too.



By Whatever:

To wageslave: Obviously this poster is completely missing the picture. He/she will continue doing the same self destructive thing no matter the setting if he/she never becomes aware of his/her part in it.



By NotGuilty:

The person has a right to complain, but I do agree that a good look at oneself is always in order. Can't change others; and it seems it's not worth it to stay there under the described circumstances. It really is a good idea suggested by one person, to have someone call as though checking your references just to learn what may be said that may jeopardize your real intentions of seeking employment elsewhere—if or when you decide to seek employment with another company. With the skills you say you have, it should be no problem becoming employed within a decent company in the field your comments seems to indicate you are now employed, even in this slow economy. Good luck to you.

A Simple 'Thank You' Would've Sufficed By Prof.Wagstaff

I was leveraged into taking early retirement from my job at a large university (won't say its name, but it's acronym is often expanded to Under Contruction, Seldom Finished)after 25 years about 3 years ago. While in my position I served as a shop steward for a while and had dealings with a woman in Labor Relations. The other day, I was surprised to see several emails from this person in my inbox as well as several from somebody at the university I had never heard of. Opening the first, I quickly realized it was an internal communication from the Labor Relations person to a department manager that dealt with a possible theft issue. I have no idea why I was added to this email. There were about a dozen total emails between the two of them that had been sent to me. I emailed the Labor Relations person to inform her that I was receiving these emails and that maybe that should stop since she was sending privileged information to an unauthorized 3rd party and that that could create legal problems for everyone down the road. Rather than saying 'Thanks, sorry,' and take me off the string, she started emailing back threatening notes, first denying ever sending the emails (then why do I have them from you?), then saying she never knew me (then why do you have my personal email address?) and then accusing me of threatening her when I asked her those questions. The other person on the string, the intended recipient of the emails threatened me with legal action if I didn't 'immediately erase all documents erroneously sent to you.' I was then contacted by the Campus Police who wanted to know why I had those emails. When I explained the situation, they said 'Never mind.' I got a further email from the Labor Relations woman who basically pulled a 'LEAVE BRITTNEY ALONE!' number on me and told me to never contact her again. I was more than happy to comply with that, but I did forward the email string to the Unions, the Chancellor's Office, Labor Relations, and, the woman they were planning to finger for the alleged theft, the woman who, BTW, according to their emails, notified her department of the theft in the first place (I was able to track her down through the university directory). All they had to say was 'Sorry,' but they became bullies and harassers. Typical of what I had to deal with for over 25 years. The longer I am away from that factory of idiots, the saner I feel.

co-worker wants to know...and WHY, cuz it's none of her business By cushion

well, it's been awhile since I jotted anything down on the site lately...I found a new job that I love, that's a miracle these days, but I truly found what I want to do for the rest of my life. But, a co-worker wants to know and WHY. "Muffin Top" is middle aged 40's just like me, however having braces and not wearing appropriate school attire is not a good image to use in our school. I think she scares the students! "Muffin Top" uses her loud voice and it shouldn't be used all the time. There a time and place to use a loud voice and yelling and calling students by using names such as "eh, what you doing!" "come-on get to class!". etc..."Muffin Top" doesn't carry a whistle to stop students and correct them to walk and not run. It is required to carry a walkie-talkie so other staff members can be aware of suspecious activities on campus. To me I hated carring those things. "Muffin Top" wants to be known around campus and be like Ms.S, but Ms.S has a certain flair with the students and they like to hang around her and be with her on the field during lunch recess. Yes, Ms. S leaves me in charge when a class is being dismissed for lunch and she has trust in me to do that. Thank you Ms. S. as for "Muffin Top" she's just a busy body and wants to know what everybody else is doing and ALWAYS HAS SOMETHING NEGATIVE TO SAY and or voice her OPINION, ALWAYS ASKING QUESTIONS AND MAKES UNNECESSARY COMMENTS to get her way during school hours. I will continue to do my job at school, and "told not to bother" others...mind my own business, yet be on her good side. I always say Hello to her and say a greeting to her everymorning, just to keep her on track...sad to say I think she and a few others sort of grandfather'ed into the school system...I don't think "Muffin Top" has a 2yr college degree. I know I'm working towards that so I can become a sub teacher and be a darn good one at that. I KNOW I do a good job at my school,and I am very lucky to know this information. I do and take care of my teachers and students that I service...I want my students to succeed in their studies so they can become better students and behave, know the rules of our school and strive to the next reading or math level. thank you.

What is it the co-worker wants to know? Your post makes very little sense.
The example you provide does not show "Muffin Top" calling anyone names. You are doing the only name calling here in referring to her with such a negative image.
Your spelling and grammar are pretty laughable. Hard to believe you work at a school. But then, you say you are "working" on a two-year degree so high school is all you have under your belt.
I suggest you study hard, learn tolerance and tact, and try getting along with other better.

Fired because of jealousy?!!!? By Clinically Insane Boss

The day I started my job at the front desk the girl training me said, within an hour, "I started in housekeeping, I guess my boobs weren't big enough and my hair wasn't blonde enough." A few months later she became the Assistant General Manager, but would never release her role as front desk super. The chef whom she had a crush on started flirting with me more and her less and that's where my problems took off. As soon as that happened my hours went from overtime and her 2nd best employee to about 15 hours a week and I needed improvement. It all goes on for close to 7 months with her going back and forth and "being my friend." Till 2 months ago when she gives me a completely bogus review, example: she took off points bc I follow company policy too closely which effected my customer service score, again because I follow company policy too closely. Two weeks ago she was texting me as usual about how tired of her job she is and she said I wasn't caring anymore. Being the brutally honest person I am I said your right I'm not. She didn't ask why or further inquire about the issue but continued to rant about her job. I couldn't stand that I wasn't caring I had even talked to the new "Front Desk Supervisor" about it, and she agreed that even she was starting to not care anymore. Well after getting written up and suspended for that texting conversation I was at my whits end. I spoke with an older lady about the situation and we decided that I loved my job and she wasn't going to ruin it for me. So once again I was putting my all into work and back to my normal self when I get a phone call... You're fired as of now bc I heard you were gossiping at the desk. WHAT?!?!

Kohls - My Bad Experience Working At Kohls By Anonymous

I worked for Kohls Department store for 2 years,and everyday that I had to report for work,I would always show up for work an hour early and some of the people that I worked with did not like me showing up for work that early. They would always ask me "why are you here at work so early?" and some of them would always show up for work 15-30 mins early, and on top of that,i would always get singled out for pretty much anything and everything and the same day and it felt as if I was bullied by my own co-workers.

On my last day at kohls,I was chatting with my co-worker about my co-worker being a c*** and my area supervisor heard it and told me that "I was making the company look bad and myself look bad and that if I had anger issues to vent somewhere else" thats when it spread like wildfire around the store and the manager-on-duty heard about it and decided to fire me. I guess you could say that I was being bullied out of being fired and wasnt wanted there. for anyone thats looking for a job,kohls is NOT a good company to work for because they treat the good co-workers like second class citizens and the upper management/area floor supervisors are snobs and treat anyone like crap! Just Saying....

I can see you are upset, and I'm sorry you had a bad work experience. You might find a better place to work, but in this economy, who knows.

You really had nothing better to do than to give Kohls an extra hour of your time, without pay, every day you worked there ? Making everyone else look 'bad' compared to you, because they only showed up 15-20 minutes early ? If you wanted to stand out from the crowd by showing up an hour early, you did that, but I bet all you got out of it was more work, difficult work, and NO raise. And you let them trap you into saying something rude about a supervisor, and you expected no repercussions from that ? Of course they singled you out. You need to be very careful in what you say at a job. Your boss may be terrible, mean, make stupid decisions, etc, but you should not say this to a coworker.

Most workplaces don't treat workers well. Most managers are snobs and treat workers horribly. And coworkers don't like it when a fellow coworker makes them look bad by showing up an hour early for work every day he works. Supervisors definitely don't like it when an employee speaks negatively about them. You have to watch who you speak to, what you say, and you have to do what the others do - if they show up only 15-20 minutes late, so do you. Take it as a lesson learned.



By Whatever:

Really? You referred to a co-worker as a c*** and you are surprised you were fired?
You sound like a clueless, antisocial idiot.
Very glad you were fired. Sure hope you don't apply for a job where I work.

You're a moron. Just because you don't use profanity doesn't mean you're not a snob. Kohl's is one of the worst retailers out there. The poster just needs to get a job that allows this person with a strong work ethic to succeed. It's usually not in retail.



By socem:

I worked as a manager for Kohl's - in several capacities and ended up as a store manager. While I agree completely that it is hard to work for this company, I know that an employee coming in that early is not a good thing unless they are specifically asked to do so. There is a very tight budget for payroll and every seven (yes, seven) minutes counts big time. Unpaid? While generous of you, it sets the store up for a lawsuit and no manager wants that. Last, profanity of any type is prohibited and unacceptable. You were a representative of the company and profanity of any type serves no purpose. Thus, you were relieved of your employment. Simple as that. Regardless of your past excellent service, profanity is legitimate grounds for termination.



By Sphincter Detector:

@Whatever, why are allowing yourself to react to these rediculous comments. Can’t you see you are being baited? Don’t you know that Annonymous is the all-time champion Master Baiter?

Listen, we’ve all had less than perfect moments in our life ..(as if any of the judges on this panel have never called their boss or supervisor an A-Hole or whatever else..), we just never got caught. Doesn’t make us better people than you, just better at not getting caught. A one- time event hardly constitutes an entire work ethic nor is it systemic of a deep rooted behavioral issue that deserves a public lynching on JobSchmob, much less get fired for. You were fired for other reasons, and this was the excuse they needed. You have to learn to read your environment to guage how people respond to your extra efforts and do extra only when it benefits you. Considering it a blessing that you are no longer in that dysfunctional environment . Ends justify the means.

lmao master baiter! yeah im glad im not working there either,besides they switch managers like the nba switches players and/or coaches



By Peon:

Lol to the post that said kohls doesn't reward good workers. In fact it the exact opposite. Good workers usually get promotions while the people like the op sit around chatting about how much work they do while taking 6 hours to put out one rail of clothing and then complain that they don't get hours.

I do agree that kohls is a horrible place to work because they tend to hold on to crap workers. They have a horrible policy of 15 occurrences a year. Team that up with low paid managers that are lazy and no one is held accountable for anything.

Does Kohl's reward hard work? In retail, or any industry for that matter, we have a little thing called politics. unprofessionalism from management runs rampant. You don't seem to have a problem with the snobbery from management. I have a news flash-that's not how you motivate people. Corporate loves dumb managers who they can take advantage of in the midst of exploiting their dispensable, desperate workers. Maybe it's not just your employees attitudes that suck; management does as well you silly, entitled, hypocrites. Grow up.

Hoorah to you for not rushing through & halfway cleaning the rooms. I've worked in the hotel industry in the past and have seen firsthand how housekeeping staff are forced to rush and aren't able to effectively clean. As for you being bilingual - that would be a bonus in my book if I were your employer! Hold your head high, maintain pride in your work and hopefully your next employer will appreciate you. God bless.
