  • no, i don't want to be "the boss"..i would rather be a shift supervisor. I know i would do a way better job than the ones they have.

  • At my current job? No (make that HELL no) At other previous jobs, maybe, just depends on which job. However, in about 2 months I will be my own boss and I am hoping that I will be able to add employess by next summer.

  • no- I've been 'the boss' I was asked all the time at a job I was at a while back why wasn't I a supervisor?
    I finally just started telling people 'because I know better!'
    the raise in pay was pathetic, you were constantly on call, and the higher up just dumped everything on you. While she would be in her office having meetings with the head of the entire operation- sometimes as long as 2 hours.
    when asked what was being discussed during those meetings since things like memos we were waiting for and the like were not materializing, we were just told it was no one's business and not to ask.

  • No, because there is still usually someone above you (unless it's your company). If you are a boss and one of your direct reports does something stupid you get bitched at by your boss because of it and then there are the meetings to discuss it...
