If anything is stolen, staff have to pay full price when she promised to pay half of it. She is just as greedy she is when she made the promise.

I helped her to cover up for one her ex-staff before several times and she never paid me for that at all. She simply just said to me that this considered the day I didnít turn up for work because of I wasnít well. She never bother to even give medical benefits to her staff. I fell sick because of her and to show my sincerity. She is making me work for free. I accepted this because I really wanted to keep the job. I was wrong after she showed me lack of appreciation. My work attitude changed because of this. I couldnít be bothered to put in my hundred percent anymore. All she cares about is her sales which she never properly address to any of her staff and on what they should expect.

She only mentioned about me losing her business just because I couldnít get any customers for her. Itís not my fault that I couldnít get customers to spend their money. They have their own freedom on what they want to spend. At times itís very quiet to the point of not even a ghost wanted to patronise the shop. How is this my fault? When she set the new stocktaking policy, I was like okay since itís very quiet. I only close early one day to do three days stocktake for her because it was that quiet. Again, she said Iím making her to lose sales because of my action. She said she has been controlling her temper on me just that I didnít appreciate my job... In the matter of fact, she never only talked about other staff and never once about me. She fired me because of the things I canít control and her faults.

With that, I urge people not to work here. The boss name is Cecilia and she only cares about money and never about her staff. She pays badly and never give appreciation to her staff. She can prevent it by briefing the staff on what to do so that the staff will know. She only cares about money back then. I already wanted to quit because of her constantly abuse. She fired me because of her faults. Just steal everything from her and make her staff pay for it at Marina Square outlet. Then her staff will have to pay full price. Once they have enough, they will quit and her business will suffer. I urge people to do so for me because sheís an evil boss.
I sympathise with your indignation. However in your last paragraph, your comments can be seen to be inciting crime. If Cecilia or anyone makes a police report against you, you're doomed.

I had a female boss once. But she was one of those who think and act like a man. So it worked out well for me.
The micro-manage part is not that bad if the staff are inexperience. The worse is being so "meticulous" that they pick up the small 5ct 10ct first, then they pick up the big picture. Waste their staff time with 5ct 10ct, when the big issues havent resolve.

Some are genuinely brilliant, some appear brilliant cos of experience. If you learn the ropes fast enough, you gain the experience they have, then you will start seeing some flaws in their reasoning and decision making and disagree. That is when they start hating you and making life difficult for you.

I would usually disagree with this (unless you are really hard pressed for money, but then if that is the case; DUN QUIT!!).

Keeping it honest will prevent you from getting into this sort of incident in the future, if you wan a career.

But again I dun remembering anyone having a career nowadays, unless they like stagnant pay. Oh I next month is my 1year joining anniversary time to get YEB and @[email protected]

poor and stupid Why quit when you can screw them up?

You may think the company is losing $$ cause they pay your salary.... actually they lied to you and you are losing money now. If you know is liddat, you would have gone to another job and not waste your time with this crap.

I hate people who dun work professionally, usually just sabo them sua.

Quit without a job, Now full of regrets

Hi,

I was also in a 'lousy' situation with a great organisation in July this year. I chose to give up, quit without looking for a job and has been jobless since end August. Feeling very down as age is against me. The job market is also very quiet now even though my line is considered iron rice bowl. Really depressing.

After about 6 mths, I accidentally injured my back. Hence, I left the job (without another) and went for my treatment about 3 times a week for 3 months.
