This is a co-worker. Why she repeated her conversation with HR, I have no idea. Wait, no, I do. She’s stupid. :smack: Her resume was a work of art. Not quite bad enough to be terminated for lying, but patently false to those who have to work with her. When we hired her 8 months ago, she knew nothing. She still knows nothing. She does not learn. She has to be taught, over and over and over again. It’s like a real-life Groundhog Day, without Bill Murray and not nearly as entertaining.
First impressions: she barely cleared the background check - it took twice as long as usual. She didn’t show up for the first day of work. Once she did arrive, she twisted everyone’s words around and got us all into trouble, because she couldn’t tell the difference between PTO (Personal Time Off) and OT (overtime). :rolleyes: Oh, and she asked to borrow lunch money. On her first day! :eek: She spent her first week her demanding that she get her benefits immediately. She yelled at everyone, and I do mean everyone, throughout our region about anything and everything throughout her first month.
It only got worse from there. She mangles names badly and complains about all the foreign names. She’s been in Silicon Valley for 20 years, she should be used to them by now. :rolleyes: Her spelling and grammar is atrocious (a serious flaw in an administrative assistant). Her behaviour is mind-boggling. She’s been known to barge into catered meetings and demand food from the attendees. At her first potluck here, she took all the food and demanded foil paper to take it all home! :eek: Admittedly, that’s just bad form, but it’s an example of the way she behaves in all things.
Her 90 day probationary period was extended to 120 days. For reasons known only to management, they kept her on afterwards. She succeeded in ruining her executive’s chance for promotion, due to her antics that she did in his name that were explicitly against his instructions and that made him look like an asshole.
What else? Oh, yes, she’s a born-again Christian and brags constantly about how many people her prayers have saved. Our other co-worker, Janet, is also a born-again Christian and Nancy asked/told her, “Since we’re both Christians, you’d tell me if my job is in trouble, right?” :rolleyes: Poor Janet has to “help” Nancy do everything, i.e. do Nancy’s job, because Nancy’s afraid of me, the pagan infidel dyke.
I could go on and on, but this isn’t the Pit, so I guess I should stop now. I do apologize for all the smilies, but you just can’t, there’s just no way to describe her without them, really. This is how people react to Nancy: :eek: :mad: :smack: :dubious: :rolleyes: :wally
