Bad bosses or unmotivated employers?

Many workers complain about bad bosses, bad mood in the company, bad working conditions.

But is it really only the employer's fault? Or maybe it is not sometimes the employee - as the following example shows.

Casting - did not work again

Ms. Meier has just returned from the interview and is very excitedly received by her husband: "And did it work?" "No, they didn't want me again."

Her husband tries to comfort her: "Anyway, tomorrow you have a trial day at the other company, it will be fine." Typical employer !? Why doesn't he give his applicants a chance? Read the whole story:

Money yes - work - no thanks!

Ms. Meier's trial day went by and they even agreed. So she got an employment contract.

Now you probably think: Well, that's great. Sure - only Mrs. Meier sees it very differently. Because days later, she sits opposite her new boss:

I want to, but ...

"I want a job," she complains to him of her suffering. "But ... it's all so much to learn." When asked by her boss whether it was easier in other companies, he was upset:

“No, the last company even wanted to train me, but ... that was too far away ... and they couldn't tell me whether they would keep me. That’s not possible… I have to know if it’s worth it… all this stress… ”

Is the effort worth it?

Taking a deep breath, she bursts out: “And I should be able to master a lot in a very short time. I often don't even know how to do it. ”

The boss tries to comfort her: “But it is quite normal that you yourself need a certain amount of time to get used to everything. You have to prove yourself in the new team and the work processes are unusual. ”

"Yes, yes, but ...", she puts forward a thousand reasons and also that her nerves cannot stand it.

At thirty, no job yet

The boss knew that she had not been with any employer with her thirty years and according to her testimony there were always others to blame.

He gave everyone his chance. That's why it made it easier for people who found it particularly difficult to classify themselves. So that Ms. Meier was not overburdened, he deliberately left her in the same work routine for longer than usual. But that too ignored her generously.

Who does not want, finds reasons

Fortunately, she found further reasons for her planned cessation, although now with the other employees. For now it was they who made working in the company impossible.

“I'm sure you can do it if you keep going for four weeks. It's a shame for every chance, ”her boss started the last attempt.

Please do not work overtime

She became insecure and snappy: "I don't really want to work at the weekend and I hardly see my boyfriend anymore and ..."

Aha - these are the real reasons. Now he had lured her out of her. With a clear conscience he let her go now, because that was no longer in his hands.

Workers who do not give themselves a chance

The fact is that Mrs. Meier did not want to give herself a chance. The trial day she had to thank her husband's contacts.

He described the situation in the company as unreasonable. It is likely that she has deceived her husband in this way for years. Who will fail?

Do you know similar cases?

We would appreciate your opinion on this and similar cases. In particular to the following questions:

  • Will Ms. Meier ever find a job?
  • What would she have to do to make it work next time?
  • Or does she secretly want a job?
  • Do you know similar cases? Send us your opinion!

    Hello Tanya,

    with your opinion you confirm my thinking. So one can only hope that such people will come to see or read such specialist articles. Wouldn't it be an approach for the employment office? Illusion - i know?

    Best regards,
    Sylvana

    "If it's your employer's fault again", new article by Simone Janson:

  3. Tanja Handl

    Ouch ... With the work attitude you quickly get the stamp “not integrable”.

    Ms. Maier does not only seem to lack stamina, but also a lack of self-esteem. What would be necessary: ​​change perspective. What could help you in this: coaching, further training measures, routine and consequences. The relationship to her husband / boyfriend mentioned in the text also seems to play an important role - is it really a matter of deception, or does this “love” work like the victim and prince? In any case, the man should hold back with "help" - it apparently only leads this woman deeper into dependency and dependency.
