    I'm still there. I've learned a lot more, of course. As for the boss the other employees that remain (a handful) tell me he's "getting better". He comes in drunk regularly but not as much. He yells and curses at you, and berates you almost everyday, but it's not as intense (no throwing parts around anymore or closing the shop early out of anger). It seems common around the machine shop to talk negatively about all the employees and about other machine shops. I just don't get it. Young people work who are so excited about learning to machine and and then are called a "f*cking idiot" directly and in many ways over and over. One of these days I want to wear a body cam.

    The boss walks around looking at you with contempt. I've stopped asking questions. I just listen when he speaks. There are almost no good questions to him.

    It turns out the shop is almost always late on getting parts to customers. I've also witnessed some really harsh interactions with them, like really treating customers poorly in person. Bad jokes, lying to get more business, aggressively handling them. These engineers I can see are sensitive to it.

    So many aspects of the job I love. But it's time to start looking around.

    A real nice place to look back on .......just use it as a stepping stone if you want to keep in that line of work.

    I agree - that will never change. This is very bad luck for your career. You either stick it out and hope to learn something or leave with your sanity and pride intact. It is a tough decision.

    I've had a couple of bosses that had anger issues. I always felt like I couldn't be honest with them without putting my career on the line. Anger management problems are a disability. A person doesn't have to be angry to show another how to improve.

    You'll spend sleepless nights worried and will never be comfortable with a boss like that. I recommend spending nights and weekends finding somewhere else to work. Exit quickly.

    Hi, it's all a matter of respect.....if someone shows disrespect for you.....either an employer or a girlfriend even.......walk away, they don't own you and the World is a big place.

    BTW.....NEVER consider a job as a career.....it's just a bread earner.......people don't like you because you're good at what you can do, mostly they'll resent your presence because you're probably better than them.

    When you can apply for a job and get it you aren't going to be judged on your past history........what you can do is what you will be paid to do and what they expect from you......if you fall down on that issue you'll walk anyway.
    Ian.
