How do I handle a boss that is out to get me?
I have a boss who apparently doesn't like me as an employee. She is nice outside of work stuff but is so entirely knit-picky with everything I do at work. She actually pulled me into her office to tell me she didn't like the way I walked around the office suite. She said I stomped too much or something. Anyway, she is always criticizing my work when my operations manager says everything is just fine. I only work with 3 people in total so there are only a few of us to choose and she has choosen me to be her punching bag. How do I handle this situation without getting fired?

I think that you need to sit down and discuss your complaints with her. As a manager myself I wouldn't know what you are thinking. Be rational through out the conversation. She may want you to look better or what ever since her office is a reflection of her and if her bosses see a person not cheerful, your boss may... More
