What Was Your Worst Employment Nightmare?

Too?often a new job doesn’t live up to the the expectations described at the job interview. All too often when people are sacked or leave a job early it’s generally assumed that they were at fault. But is this true?

We are?interested to discover?how companies “welcome and manage new hires”, how people cope with the Company politics, the new boss and colleagues and the actions that each?group can undertake to make starting a new job more difficult.

For instance:

  • What parts of the job were different to those described at the interview?
  • What actions did boss undertake that made job difficult?
  • Was the boss difficult to understand?
  • What stupid rules did the company have?
  • How did colleagues behave towards you?
  • What actions did you take to resolve the situation?
