I was recently in a situation where I was offered an unpaid but otherwise attractive opportunity for a traveling position. All expenses were to be paid, and I would get to travel all over the world. It ended up that both my husband and I were able to take part, along with 'The Boss' and his girlfriend.
At the beginning it went fairly smoothly, but slowly it turned more and more into a total nightmare, ending with my husband and I rage quitting a day before we were supposed to fly to Europe.
Since then, he has had two other teammates quit and is now with yet ANOTHER two teammates. There were also many before us. This confirms to me that it wasn't just us who didn't get along, and in fact The Boss specifically is just a horrible person in general and no one can deal with him.
How can I help future employees avoid making the same mistake I did?If I were to reach out to some blogs or write my own, could I be in legal trouble if I would write an expose? Is it bad to reach out to the brand new current members and give them a warning for what they could be in for?
I should mention this guy is super sue-happy and threatens everyone who doesn't do what he wants with a law suit. If I understand correctly the two members after us are currently being sued (they had a contract, probably to prevent them from rage quitting like we did).
