Crazy boss in Singapore

Postby reggie3030 » Thu, 29 Dec 2016 11:56 pm

Hey guys so I'm actually an expat working in Singapore and I'm originally from England.

There's this crazy boss in my company who would spy on her employees' WhatsApp and personal emails - eventually I decided to leave this company. When I handed in my resignation letter, this crazy boss said that she has already prepared a termination letter and forced me to sign it . She said that if I don't sign it she would not cancel my EP for me. That's absolutely insane and I wonder why she would do that. And she's in the fine jewellery industry as well she always always bitches about her big ticket customer in front of us (they spent tens and thousands of dollars in her company .. and her net profit is high as freak those pieces aren't even worth it)

Just sharing my awful exp on here - I hope karma will get this bitch and all her shops will close down soon

How did she 'spy' on your personal emails and whatsapp? That's not as easy as it sounds. The reason she had your termination letter ready was presumably to set the T&C in it.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

Pardon me for saying this, on this wonderful Friday morning : you sound like a angry b*tch..

So what, if the jewellery aren't worth it - they pay your salary and your colleagues pay ... you want people to sell at cost so they can't employ A foreigner like you ? ;) a highly paid English guy, to boot !

Have a great weekend !

PS, I hope you weren't using company equipment for personal whatsapp ... unless authorised, that's abuse of company property :) and I guess you will be happy if she closes down and your fellow colleagues too will be jobless ;)

"an angry bitch" and honestly I got another job already so I intended to leave. We have a whatsapp group for work purposes so it's authorised - but she's certainly not okay to read other personal messages. and I was hired from the uk she wanted me to help her out don't know who's angry now

She has authorised us to use WhatsApp and personal emails for work purposes - i.e. For communication and stuff :)

I'm sorry to hear that. Fortunately, most bosses in Singapore aren't as crazy as you think. Hope you get a better job!

Ehem. Probably well over 50% of the EU/USA origin expats are right now in their countries of origin.

So how did she spy on your personal email ? NSA ? Echelon ?

And tell me again, you got a decent salary, decent enough for you to get a pass, how would that happen if your Boss ran the business at a loss ? Ah, never mind :)

I have worked in Singapore for many years and I'm wishing to be transferred there again.

You would need access to one of the phones involved in the conversation. Or the resources of the NSA.
