Every boss I've ever had actually done their jobs right. I never seen an incompetent boss or bitchy manager. (No micromanaging or w/e.)
However, I'd really prefer that they retain me bc I not only liked where I worked, but I also showed it by working hard on the salesfloor. Unless I was people greeting, I get at least 80% done each night. Mal-Wart softlines consider that good work performance. Even the girl mgr over us admitted that. Yet, not only did they can me, they were totally disrespectful, telling me I'm not fit to work. You know what's creepy? The guy who canned me (and the girl who watched me get canned) weren't even that much older than me. They were 24 and 26 respectively. Are they even old enough to make decisions as managers? With only 2 ppl left in Ladies Wear, I can only imagine how much (don't) get done.
The boss I had b4 that one, she wasn't bitchy or incompetent, but she somehow never caught me knocking over sizers once or having a 2 minute arguement w/ a male coworker in the breakroom. Otherwise, she prolly woulda canned me too, idk, but she actually gave me a reference to get that Mal-Wart job. Maybe she'd retain me even if I did get caught cuz I worked hard over there too and maybe bc she actually is old enough to make decision as manager. The point is, it doesn't matter whether managers are male or female, as long as they could see a hard worker for who they are.
