my boss makes me wear her clothes, eat her food, and say I’m grateful for my job

Ask A Manager

I’m in my mid-20s and this my first professional job after completing grad school. But one problem I haven’t figured out how to deal with is her expectation that I be more grateful for the job. She constantly remarks things like “this is such a good job,” “I give you such great pay/hours,” “You kids don’t appreciate how good I am to you,” and “No other job would treat you this well.” When I received my tax documents, I got a 1099 instead of a W-2.

I promised to stay for a year but want to leave now, using my own personal computer at work, and more

Ask A Manager

Back in January, my boss somehow found out I was looking for another job and sat me down. The job is good, but I definitely don’t get paid enough for all the stress and the commute is hell. Would working at a for-profit university hurt my future job search? I have a question about university jobs. I feel it would be a good foot in the door, as my eventual goal is to get a job doing something similar at a nonprofit school.
