Bosses with San Antonio jobs doing an above-average job?

Friday, June 20th, 2014

A recent survey from job board Careerbuilder posits that employees think their bosses with jobs in San Antonio, among other locations, are performing above-average.

Asked to evaluate their bosses’ performance, more than 6 in 10 (63 percent) U.S. workers say their manager deserves an “A” or a “B” while 1 in 7 would assign a “D” or “F” (14 percent).

Additionally, about four in ten workers (39 percent) say they are friends with their boss.
A plurality of workers give their boss a “B” and about 1 in 4 assign a “C”:

A: 24 percent

B: 39 percent

C: 23 percent

D: 9 percent

Thirty-one percent of workers who interact several times a day in person with their boss assign them an “A” compared to just 17 percent of workers who interact with their boss once a day or less.

Twenty-five percent of workers say their boss typically communicates with them via text or instant message. Of those employees, 30 percent assign an “A” to their boss’s performance.

Twenty-two percent of employees say their current boss asks them do things unrelated to their jobs, and unsurprisingly, 51 percent of those employees give their bosses grades of “C” or worse.

The following are real requests bosses asked of their employees, as shared by survey respondents.

· Asked employee to coach other employees on how to pass a drug test

· Asked employee to fire a colleague and then drive them home

· Asked for employee’s opinions of Tinder profiles

· Asked employee to order items on personal Amazon account so boss’s spouse wouldn’t know about it

· Asked employee to find out how to obtain death certificate for her deceased ex-husband

· Asked employee to commiserate with daughter-in-law about the death of her cat
