I Hate Workplace Bullying

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 218 People

    I was bullied out of a job.

    My Last Job Was Crawling With Sociopaths

    At my last job, I was there for 2 years. My first year was nearly perfect. I got along with everyone there, was liked, performed well, etc. Then, in the middle of the second year, I was basically harrassed by another person on the job and decided to press charges. Because this...

    How To Turn Workplace Bullying/ Prejudice To Your Advantage?

    Nope, I have no idea how to. I am a victim myself. In fact I was a victim today, for the umpteenth time. As much I got angry, abusive, irritated, disappointed, demotivated, used, fooled, prejudiced, lost in thought, feeling sad about my life, not given due recognition that I...

    The Scourge Of Workplace Bullying

    It is perpetrated by people who feel threatened by others. They feel they have a certain position in the workplace and when someone comes along who seems more competent or more intelligent, it becomes their mission to thwart and undermine that person as much as they can.  They...

    Insight Please?

    My manager constantly swears at people in a degrading manner. He has been known to let his wrath out on people. He just comes up to you in the middle of the office - open plan - and starts calling you an F-ing C* and such names with no constructiveness to it at all. No 'you've...
