My boss watches me on the video cameras even on her days off so I’m quitting
I work at a little boutique alongside 2 other people, one being my coworker and one being my manager. There’s only the three of us – I’ve only been there for a month now and I can’t stand it, mostly I can’t stand my manager.
There can never be a positive thing that leaves her lips without something negative following up right behind. Nothing we do seems to be good enough … which is bizarre because it’s a small shop and we work very hard.
She constantly belittles us in front of customers – as well as make jokes that I can’t count… the breaking point was when she admitted that she watched the sécurity cameras everyday even when she’s not working.
She’ll watch them multiple times and call the store (on her days off) to tell us to not do this, or do this etc … well the day before yesterday my coworker and I were at work, my manager clocked out for the days after working the full 8h and left.
However unbeknownst to us, she actually left the store and pretended to leave but casually sat in a bar in-front of the boutique for an hour watching us and see if we were working (as well as being on her phone with the security cameras).
She admitted this to us yesterday with pride, no shame in sight. My other coworker quit a week ago (it’s a month long notice).
My manager cannot afford to lose me, however I feel so disgusted by her that I’m quitting tomorrow and I’m giving her two days notice.
She’s gonna struggle but that’s what she gets for constantly criticizing me when all I did was work hard.
