Sifting through craigslist ads and whatnot, and extrapolating from my own work experience, here are some common bullshit job criteria that keep popping up, and what it all really means:
"Must be a team player." Translation: Must be able to work with difficult/stupid/unbalanced coworkers and/or bosses without doing them bodily harm.
"Strong ability to multitask." Translation: Ability to do your job, as well as the jobs of at least two other people.
"You will not have a static job description." Translation: We have no idea what we're doing, and we're just going to throw random stuff at you and expect it to get done.
Anyone else got any?
Garh... why do I have to do all the shit around here. I only got a 27 cent raise this year and bitchface gets to complain that SHE should be manager. Until I get a raise you can shut your pilehole and quit complaining.
ps: I just found out that they're drafing an email, but no one BOTHERED to tell me that, despite having it having to go to finance department to be approved. Yes thanks for actually keeping me in the loop guys... gah!
Seems quiet here. Maybe a post might kickstart it?
I have an Obnoxious CoWorker (OCoW), who I can only describe as sullen, brooding, arrogant, self-serving, professionally and socially inept, explosive, rude, incindiary, and lazy. (Don't hold back, Alice....)
I always thought that he would one day be on CNN for workplace violence or...he'll surely be promoted to mid to upper level management.
She's responsible, dependable, honest, and great with the customers.
Our boss called the other day and bitched out my coworker, while she was with a customer. She reamed her because our sales are low. Every store's sales are low right now. Our numbers are not far off from every other store!
She yelled at her because my coworker refuses to go to a training session. She would have to go on one of her weekend days, drive 6 hours round trip, and spend the full day in training. And get this, the company will not pay for her gas, any expenses, and refuses to pay for her training.
I don't think many people would be willing to put up with that.

Really though, it is worse than all this, I should just post the emails from her straight on here, I was really being kind about it... this girl is an idiot.
I think it is pretty standard for people to wonder what their insurance policy is covering... that is just a normal thing.
it makes me laugh how dumb these people are.
