I hate "Human Resource Department"

I have been working in big corporate america for a long time and now having been with this new company we are growing so fast that we are slowly turning into what I wish we wouldnt. I didnt want us to forget where we came from and how we started, but we are now growing so much, so fast that we are becoming that monster.

HR sucks, they should be rah rah and for the employee and take care of your people attitude.. The so called Pro they we hired is an asshole, and his team of two little biznatches, suck too.

Uh, I want to go postal on them.... they create so much disharmony in the work place it aint funny.....

Nothing is confidential with them, they gosip and spread cancer all over the place.. the director is a 50 year old Burle Ives look alike, that is going through a mid life crisis, he drives a little 2 seater mazada sports car, with all the bling bling & Rims. he hired two little stuck up hoes out of college, they arent evenb cute, they are bean poles. they both are stuffy, cranky girls....

All three of them sit in his office at a round work station and talk shit and eat donuts. When will the executive committie see through his BS. I mean damn, they create more HR issues than anyone else.


OK, Thanks you for letting me rant!!!!!!! take a deep breath!!! 1,2,3,4, there there.... Do any of you guys deal with this type of shizit?

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

No, I fracking left large corp America 26 years ago for a reason.

I feel your pain.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Gotta love corporate politics. I worked for a Fortune 50 company... and the single largest HR problem, was the head of HR in our region. Don't get me started.

All I can say is that you get to make a choice, stick around and tolerate the crap or risk not sticking around. If you choose to move on, you may try to make the powers that be aware of the problem, and see if that does any good (highly unlikely in my experience). Remember, only take that avenue if you are willing to move on to another job. You may wanna have that other job lined up before you say anything

FWIW, I won't work for large companies anymore. Too much BS. Freedom and flexibility is worth much more to me than the stability of a larger corporation, especially now that larger coroporations aren't as stable a job as they once were.

Just my .02,

Wink

I'm dealing with something similar.

Work for several small business which are growing at a pace which they cant handle. This results in a total cluster [email protected]!, and a totally unorganized and chaotic office.

The fun part sarcastically speaking is that I'm one of the people trying to fix it all. So the whole attitude/teamwork bit sounds all to familiar.

Like you, bunch of stuck up chicks in the office that think they own the place, owners driving porsches, and yet again..think they know how to manage (which they cant).

I feel you pain man...srry, but this happens in like 60% of businesses, small & medium sized.

Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

John,

You got to ask your self one simple question: Are you ready to move on? If the answer is no, relax and just ignore all of these. Other wise it will drive you nuts.

I am working for Fortune 100 and it is a nightmare at times. I used to try to do something and try to speak up until I realized that I am only getting fucked in return. I started to keep my mouth shut and put less effort into my work. Guess what, I started to get better raises, even managed to get promoted couple of times.

Now, unless it has direct effect on me I let them do what ever they damn wish. Why am I still there. Simple. It is 2 miles from home and I am home everyday for lunch. They do not bug me and let me do what ever heck I wish, within a reason. I makle sure that my work gets done and it always gets done right the first time. Along with couple other reasons.

I think it is the same bs everywhere. Aren't you glad we all have a wonderfull outlet in the face of CLSB to vent out

I find HR to be about as useful as dust in a semi-conductor fab plant.

October is the month that we have to elect to make benefit changes for the next fiscal year and some of us at work had to contact HR to get some questions ansewered, which was a big mistake, because it was like asking them how one goes about splitting the atom.

when you are with a good company these things aren't an issue. but when you work for a bad one...man do they suck!

My biggest HR beef is when TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY paid me one extra month follwing my termination and they didn't notice it, nor did I. (At the time I had left to go back to school and was getting student loan $ so I didn't notice the extra $1800 that also came from the same disbursement location as my pay) Then TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY noticed it 6 MONTHS later and wanted it all back IMMEDIATELY. Then we finally worked out a deal, but it has been OVER TWO YEARS SINCE I LEFT and I am STILL listed as an employee, I am STILL listed as having a campus office and telephone number, and they are STILL deposting into my Texas Teacher's Retirement Fund.
EVERY MONTH I have to call HR, explain this, and get the TTRF funds moved out of my account, since they don't belong to me. (Why bother, you ask? Because once I found out what these people were like about an extra paycheck, I didn't want to ever have to deal with this in the future.)
