This is the original problem from an employee...
I'm not sure if this is in the right category, but I will ask anyway!! I started a position about 5 months ago as a manager over a food and bar area in a bowling center. The place was a mess and I have gotten control (mostly) over it since. I have a GM who is just a miserable, deceitful, manipulative person. I know I am going to sound harsh, but I am not at all. This has all built up over time and I don't know what to do.

I do enjoy my job and what I am doing, but he constantly keeps me from doing my job. He talks behind my back to my employees and other employees. He has told people that I don't know what I'm doing, I shouldn't have this job, I can't handle it. He thought we had run out of something the other day and was upset that we didn't. He keeps info from me. We will have parties that he has booked and won't tell me about them. This seems like petty stuff, but it's daily. I have employees calling me almost everyday in tears because of something he's done. I just tell them that we have to show him a certain level of respect because of who he is, but try not to let him get to you. The latest thing was he told one of my employees (she's only 19) that I was not allowed to do deposits because of my financial situation. Granted this man's name was in the paper two weeks ago for filing bankruptcy and he wants to talk about me.

I have talked to the owners and they have even said they have problems with him. They don't know about this latest incident. They've told me to basically tell him to back off, let me do my job and stay out of my way. It sounds good, but his crap happens everyday and they are not always there. I have a good relationship with the employees and am a very good worker. I have had my family tell me to just quit, but I keep telling myself that they will eventually get rid of him.

Any advice from anyone? I know this is going to sound terrible (and nothing against short people, I am!!), but he has the worst case of short-man's syndrome than anyone I've ever seen.

Hey my name is Shay and I have some advice on your situation,considering that I was in the same exact situation as you. I no longer have my job because I have quit but I now see that I made a mistake. Never stop anyone from stopping you from doing your job and making that money... I loved my job and eventually got fed up with all the drama but my advice for you is to hold on 2 your job and just do you because finding another job may be hard and time consuming.

The key to getting out of this one is through the owners. Document EVERYTHING this guy does wrong and keep it to yourself until the time is right - i.e. when you have built up a substantial case against him. My scenario was different, as the person I got rid of was not my boss. But in a non-profit, union environment where he had been employed for 12 years was a challenge too. It took 1.5 years, 60 entries in the management log, and a lot of meetings with my boss and HR but WORTH IT. The happiness of 23 employees and their relief at having him finally gone was worth the time.
