New Manager Cancels Overtime, Supervisor Leaves Them to Wrap-Up Alone
This newly-promoted manager made the classic blunder of trying to implement change before first understanding how things worked at their new job. It's a mistake you see made repeatedly throughout your life, but it just keeps happening. Someone somewhere needs to start training their new managers to observe before making changes.
This thread was posted to Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit by Redditor u/scifielder, who was more than happy to leave when their shift was over and not work the overtime they were no longer being paid for.
Readers, as always, reacted in the comments and offered some advice.
"This is why if you start a new job as a manager, you don't touch anything for at least a month so you can see how things do or don't work," offered highfatoffaltube with some sage advice. "If you are thinking of changing things ask some of the people who have been around for a while what they think first."
