I'm a regular going anon because this is painful to talk about.
I work in the most toxic environment I've ever worked in during my life. My boss bullies me constantly. Some examples are:
1. Telling me to clock out after 40 hours but to continue working because "that's how we do it in this department." My work day starts at 6:30am, I leave at 3:30pm and then I work from home, for free, from 4:30pm until 10:00pm. Every day
2. Making me sign "promissory" notes with the date and time (to the minute) that I will have projects completed
3. Telling me, almost daily, that he "doesn't even want to look at" me because I piss him off so much
4. Discussing me with his secretary who, in turn, tells others within the facility about what he has told her
This isn't a small company I work for. It's huge. I've gone to HR to no avail. They are understandably concerned about dealing with him; he brings a huge amount of money into the company. Bottom line is that he's not going anywhere and nothing is going to change as long as he is there. So, on Monday I put in my notice that I was leaving August 1.
The sort of final straw came last night when a co-worker stated that he called her into his office yesterday and spent two hours deriding me. He told HER to talk to me.
I guess the bottom line is that my anxiety level is so high that I am really worried about my health. I rarely sleep more than 3 hours a night, I can't eat, my chest feels like there is a weight on it. I'm not a young woman anymore.
I have an interview with another company on Monday. I'm seriously considering going into my current job on Sunday, leaving my keys, pager, ID and laptop and letting them know I'm done. On the one hand, I know this is a horrible idea. On the other, I don't think I can spend another minute there.
Please help me muddle through this.
