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 is just coming from the job interview and is excitedly received by her husband: "And, did it work?" "No, they did not want me again."
Her husband tries to comfort her: "Well, no, tomorrow you have a trial day at the other company, that will be fine." Typical employer !? Why does he give his applicants no chance? Read the full 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 about her suffering. "But ... it's all so much that I should learn." When asked by their boss, if it was easier in other companies, got upset:
"No, the last company even wanted to train me, but ... that was too far away ... and if they kept me then they could not tell me either. It's just not possible ... I need to know if it's worth it ... all this stress ... "
Is the effort worth it?
Taking a deep breath, it bursts out of her: "And with you, I should master a lot in no time. I often do not know how it all works. "
The boss tries to comfort her: "It is quite normal that you need a certain amount of time to get used to everything. You have to prove yourself in the new team and unfamiliar are the workflows. "
"Yes, yes, but ...", she explains a thousand reasons and also that her nerves can not 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 for four weeks. It's a pity for any chance, "her boss started the last attempt.
Please do not work overtime
She became insecure and snotty came: "At the weekend, I do not really want to work and I hardly see my friend 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?
