    My supervisor was a ****.

    I was part-time at a busy retail store based near my college. I was doing minimal hours - occasionally 16 hours a week. The pay was poor, but it got me by. My supervisor, let's call him Shaun, would occasionally call me useless, criticise my work and would give me the most...

    Under A Tyrannical Boss For Ten Years And Glad My Job Was Outsourced.

    Workplace Bullying
