When I was in my early twenties, I went to work for a nonprofit organization in which I worked for over twenty years before leaving. During this time, I was given the opportunity to work for several different individuals, whom all at one time at another praised me for my work ethics. I was given task after task in which they were all completed in a timely manner, after a couple years my work productivity had influenced management to take a chance on me. One day my supervisor at the time approached me and asked if I wanted to continue my education. Because management was really impressed with my work I was encouraged to continue my education. I immediately enrolled in a program where I received an Associate Degree in Community Health.
2. Supervisor from hell is what I called the last individual I worked for. As I stated in my previous discussion, I worked for a non profit organization for over twenty years. The last two years were pure hell, this individual transferred into the department without any working knowledge of the program that was being offered to disadvantaged families. The program was called TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families). This individual had a negative attitude towards the children, and the elders but the single mother, she was flat out cynical. This individual was so power hungry, that she requested that all staff email her, for the fifteen minute breaks, bathroom privileges and one-hour lunch breaks. The harassment became such a challenge that the seven people that originally worked in the department serving eleven villages was reduced down to four after one year.
