10 things an employee does not want to hear

Recommended Posts

Don't mean to be disrespectful, just trying to help us smile thru the pain:

1. "Don't worry your job is secure!" or "Your job is safe."

2. "By the way, is your laptop in your office?"

3. "We're giving you a one-time opportunity to expand your resume."

4. "Wouldn't it be great to spend more time with your family?"

5. "Where do you see your career going with us in the next year?"

6. "We're not laying you off; we're just not rehiring you."

7. "Are you going to be here this Friday? Say...around 3 p.m.?"

8. "So how's your wife's job going?"

9. "We are re-sizing our global footprint."

10. "Could you close the door, please?"
