My boss is very disorganized and short tempered.
- I scheduled meetings for him. Let him know beforehand several days. Text him a summary of meetings every morning. He ended up missing them or rescheduling because he came late at work or just simply wanted to meet people from other departments. I spend my days calling people to let them know their meetings being canceled.
- I give him important docs (contracts, docs that need to be sign). When I ask whether he sign it, so that I can return to people. He says he doesn't know and ask me to search for them in his office. (ALWAYS HAPPEN). So whenever I present him something, I wait for him to sign it and take it back immediately.
- He decides according to mood. He gives me a design task. When I go through many changes to meet his expectation. At the last minute, he changes his mind because when he goes to another shop, he prefers their design. So people works are always in "pending" status.
- Be angry at random people. My boss has impossible expectation. When he goes out and observes another shop, he sees something good about them. he goes back and force changes on the departments. But he is a high level manager who only understands the surface and not details of the company structure & system. head of departments explain to him why the changes are not relevant/feasible, but he doesn't accept. he isn't angry at head departments. But when someone else presents him with the unchanged work (e.g an old design that he wanted to change but head department didn't want), he yells at them why its not changed. they say that its not within their responsibilities (its truly not). He ignores it and keep yelling. E.g he wanted to see the retail price list. I presented him the current price list and he started shouting that it was not right. He wanted to change this price list for years but people stopped him because his ideas were not feasible. When I say it was not my job to come up with the price list. He said NO, and started talking about how wrong it was.
It's not that I don't like change. But this crazy changing frequency happens very frequent. Everybody is disappointed. I am a new collage graduate who struggles to find job. I know if I quit, I have no experience to find another job, nowhere to go, and no money. I could go through all of this until I am knowledgeable enough to move on. But every time I go home from work, it felt so wrong. I work 60 hours/ week but get paid 48 hours. The company doesn't pay for overtime work. I stay back because my boss says "you cannot go home earlier than me". His working schedule is from 11a-8p while everybody else is from 8-5 (including me). So I always stay at work from 8a-8p
English is not my 1st langue, so please spare the grammar errors. If someone has suggestions on my situations, it is appreciated.
