I hate my boss
I hate my boss. I am 23 years old and have been working as anengineer for a little more than a year and I hate it. It can be rewarding at times, but other times, it sucks. Most of my hatred of my job comes directly from my boss. He is an *******. This is my first job out of college. Basically for the first 6 months I was apparently making a lot of little mistakes here and there, and my boss caught them, but never told me about them. Also for the first 6 months, he was nothing but nice to me, and praised my work, even though he didn't feel that way. Then 6 months in he finally tells me about all the mistakes I've been making. Then for the next three months all he does is put me down, keep criticizing me, leaving snide and snarky comments on my work, raise his voice at me, talking **** about me behind my back to my coworkers and I think even our clients. Then one day he snaps and yells at me in front of everyone for a very minor mistake. My coworkers took notice, and he did get reprimanded for it. Bu then for the next month he became passive aggressive, didn't talk to me, pouted like a little 2 year old. However, I did learn from the mistakes, because I was able to tune out his negativity towards me and improve my work.So my work improved, and my boss actually took notice and started praising my work again. But, fast forward to last month, he starts to give me **** again. I snapped and almost quit. He got scared, he apologized and talked me out of quitting citing he was going through personal problems or whatever. So, I felt bad and apologized, didn't end up quitting. Everything for the next few weeks went alright.Then all of a sudden he just gives me the silent treatment, giving my vague instructions via email, passing on comments of how he thinks my work is wrong again, when I made a very minor mistake. I am so fed up with this whole situation, my confidence is at an all time low, I don't like interacting with my boss at all, because when I see him all I can think of is how much crap he's given me over the last year, how he never really gave me proper training, and how fake he is. And it's not just me, everyone(or atleast the majority of people) in my office dislike him. I did feel bad about his personal problems, but then again I've been thinking, who doesn't have personal problems? I have SA, no friends, no social life, I have been diagnosed with depression, but I'm not an *** hole to people. I get along well with all my coworkers aside from my boss. I am actually looking for other jobs, but my confidence is just so low from my current job that I am afraid this situation will happen again.
