Frustrated with new supervisor...
One of the greatest things about working from home, IMO, is there is no one here breathing down my neck.
My former supervisor, whom I got along with great and new from a previous job that we both worked at some years ago, was wonderful. We (the transcriptionist whom she was in charge of) were often praised for our work when things were really good yet talked to in an encouraging way when these were not so good and we had to step up to the plate and work harder or when she was encouraging us to put in overtime.
Well, two weeks ago we got an email that she had resigned her position and while they were looking for someone to take her place we would have an interim supervisor. This woman is NOTHING like the former. She talks down to us as a group all the time, practically scolding us when she thinks things aren't done like they should be.
Nothing in the way I have performed my job has changed since the new supervisor took over and yet I'm constantly bothered as to why am I doing things this way, her way would be better, etc.
The old supervisor NEVER talked to us like that. Furthermore, if there was a problem with a specific transcriptionist she would speak to that personal individually by email. Not this new one; she will actually point out individual faults in a group email to everyone who works under her. Talk about demeaning!
Dang, I miss my old supervisor! Just had to rant. Thanks for listening.
