    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.

    Each morning I wake up the very first thought to pop into my head is Thank God, I no longer have to go to GB today. No more hateful boss. No more back stabbing peers - they were all nice people but management, managed their people by pitting everyone below them against each...

    For twenty years I had been supported
