I have one now who's a major micromanager. I let her think I'm doing everything according to her will, when I'm really doing it my way.
I would cry every day and then go back. I used to work 4 McDonald's where the manager is always right..and it was the only job I had at the time.
I refused to ever work with her again! I made sure I did not make my hours when she was on duty. One day she was called in and I happened to be there already working, my Yang had called me and he could tell I was distraught. I told him she was called in … Read more
In the Army, I saluted them.
In civilian life, I never hired any.
How about you do your own homework? You won't learn anything if others do your work for you.

I've never really encountered extremely bad management after graduating college and getting a real job. Most of the companies I've jump around are pretty socially liberal. So the environment is very relaxed. You don't have a set time to "punch in" because being an adult means you understand responsibility. Can't say the same about the … Read more
I dusted off my resume and looked for a new job.
I haven't used this with supervisors or as I like to call them...stupidvisors. Never had the need. The thing is to try to keep things as positive as possible. Listen to them, repeat what they said in your own words to show that you have acknowledged them. Attitude and a willingness to excel in your … Read more
You should have them cooked and eaten.
The most immediate idea is to seek a transfer, a different shift, or a new job. Another would be to rise above them, but that isn't likely in most jobs.
If these are not options, do what you know is right and give them no fuel to "eff" with you. Press forward.
Of course you could … Read more
That's a hard thing to do day in and day out. Personally, I'd start looking for another job if possible.
