Worked at the Center for Association Resources managing the nonprofit group, NAPBS. 

Rob called me in for an interview and described all these wonderful things I would be doing with my degree and background, running conference calls and working with a lobbyist in D.C., etc. Hearing all of these wonderful things and seeing my background would be put to good use, I was naturally excited. It was only days later I found out I would be doing nothing but answering emails and cleaning up a 2 month administrative backlog created by him. During the first week he also stated we would discuss a contract at the end of the week. Worked the entire first week without discussing hours, salary, or what was expected of me. Finally Friday rolls around, and at about 4pm I asked to meet with him before I left for the day. He was completely dumbfounded as to why we needed to meet. We still had not discussed any hours or salary, but he figured we had... If i didnt print off all the tax forms online and turn them in, i would have been working for free. This is when I first questioned his sanity.

Weeks later I asked him what his vision was for me in the company and how my background and degree would be an asset to the company. He responded saying employees are only an asset, "if they do what they are told" and that he "never said anything about my background working into this position." Ummm, what? I was basically lied to during the interview and told outlandish things to get me in. This really makes me wonder how well his mind is...

Rob also constantly emailed me at my personal email at all hours of the day. According to other reports he has harassed former employees, via their personal email account. I would come home from work, only to find 2 unread emails from Rob sitting in my inbox, with a Read Report attached to them to make sure I read his annoying emails. I never got a break from the place, even at home. I have also received threatening and disturbing emails from him, which makes me question his mindset once again. 

During my time at the office, it became clear that he was not only inhibiting us from clearing up the backlog, but also contributing to it. I came in with no training and there were no directions as to what person possibly played what role in the company. I was just supposed to fix everything. Our only resource was sending out an email, only to have Rob intercept it (He was also in our inbox) and tell us not to email that person. He did nothing but sit in his office all day and stalk us from his computer. He would also go thru our inbox from the safety of his office and tell us what emails needed to be taken care of. Instead of taking care of a few of them himself, he would just forward them from our inbox to our same email so they would appear unread & new. He literally did nothing but terrorize us and make things worse.

This got down to the point where EVERY email we needed to send out had to be approved by him first. Remember there was also a 2 month backlog of emails and a monthly journal that was overdue. Emails that could have been responded to quickly & answered immediately, were now taking days to respond. Now I understand why they were so backlogged.... 

I was expected to come in with the answers to fix everything. Too bad you cant fix stupid.
