My boss constantly talks on her cell phone

I just started a job which involves direct customer service. My boss has been there for about 5 years. She constantly talks on her cell. She usually tucks in under her shirt by her shoulder and puts in on speaker so she can continue working. She even chats like that while on the floor in front of customers. No cell phones are allowed on the work floor while on the clock, she distracts me, and it seems to distract her. I don't want to be a snitch, afterall I just started. DH suggested I call and complain as an anon customer but I'd feel od doing that. Any suggestions?

  • I agree with the others. Have your dh call and complain. And her supv is probably aware and ignoring it.

  • She's been there 5 years. Guaranteed management is already aware of it.

    Not what you wanted to hear, but she has a point. If your boss has been there that long, the problem has probably been pointed out before and ignored.

  • Actually, mompam gave you sound advice. There is nothing more annoying than a new employee who wants to rock the boat. How's about just doing what you're supposed to and leaving the real customers to make real complaints as they see fit?

  • you know what? Yes I am a new employee but if I see another employee, manager or not, breaking the rules of the company which are written in plain letters in he break room, it is wrong.

  • You are not her boss. Don't do anything. No one likes a tattletale.
