For quite a few years I worked at a supermarket. I eventually became a produce clerk which I liked for the most part. I moved to another company, and when our original manager got transferred we got a new one. He was absolutely dreadful, and nobody liked working for him. One year we had too many people working, so I managed to get some hours over in the meat department to make up for what I lost That's quite ironic for a vegetarian, but I also figured I would be extra careful not to produce much waste.
The work was simple as they just needed me to fill the cheeses, lunch meat, bacon, etc. The guys in that department treated me with respect, and thus I worked harder for them because you can be very productive if you're not depressed. After about two weeks, the meat department wanted to take me from produce but my manager would not allow it. Seems he only showed to care when he had the ability to lose me. Eventually I went back to produce all the time, and his "work like three people" attitude persisted. He was honestly surprised when I left for another company.
