      The mom and pop restaurants I worked at. Two of them in particular. If anyone ever says it's like family here run for the hills!

        Working at Colorado State University. My Accounting boss was moving money in and out of accounts she shouldn't have. I did the Monthly Billing, and it would electronically go to my boss to sign. I would attach a copy my original paperwork to the electronic records. Idiot would write on the records herself and re upload them to the account. Anyone could plainly see my original handwriting and then her handwriting, crossing out what I had done and moving money to other accounts. She was "asked" to leave. They ended up getting rid of the whole department. I had a nervous breakdown and left. It was also the only job I ever had that I saw show favoritism, by letting a guy disappear to visit friends for a few hours a day, then do 40 hours a month overtime because he couldn't get his work done. I complained constantly and nothing was ever done about anything. Tons of other stuff. After years of therapy, I have a GREAT job as a Site Manager, and the best boss I have ever had.

          I worked at a manufacturing plant for 2 years.....initially as the bookkeeper then later added on HR, DOT compliance, etc --- total of 48 employees. Now the owner didn't let me see everything in the books which I thought was odd but I was told that was just how he was so I didn't really know any better. Later when I was asked to remove his dad (who retired years before) from the books & to just add his payroll to the owners so he can "still get his money" I was done. The same week the plant manager asked me to find a loophole not to pay someone unemployment & then drew up paperwork to write someone up and told me to sign it. I put in my two weeks that day & never looked back. Still makes me mad thinking about it

            Family owned dry cleaner. The mom and daughter screamed at each other ALL DAY. My blood pressure was through the roof-I left before I stroked out.

              I was a Realtor for a hot minute about 20 years ago. Open Houses on weekends, showing houses in the evenings, commission only, ever-changing inventory. This was not the job for me!

                One shift at a gas station. 'Nuff said.
                Too many freaks, not enough circuses.

                  Working as a hotel maid right after high school.... the owners husband was weird and the department head would walk around with a white glove on checking everything! Not to mention the drama between the other maids. They had a gay couple (it was early 90's) rent a room for 1 night, the left the room in a better shape than most people. But we had to 'deep clean' it. Walls, corners, wash curtains, spray, etc. I was only there for about 4 weeks.

                    Both eBay and Amazon provide great deals for Trachte door hasps. The most challenging part about Trachte hasps is the installation difficulty. I wonder if a 24/7 locksmith nw6 service would be able to install it. I think there are some qualified locksmith specialists in safe fields able to open them,...

                    by helenatim
                    I can fully appreciate a good vent when it's needed!! And I can understand how the inept management of some facilities could be pretty annoying and give the whole industry a black eye, but I will tell you from experience that you can run these businesses without an on-site manager if you want. ...
