The Center for Association Resources Robert O. Patterson Do Not Use - Work Here Schaumburg, Illinois

I was hired here and feeling alone in my struggle with this man and his job expectations until I read these other reports. I am simply writing to highly advise anyone thinking of working here to NOT do so - hoping to alleviate you from a situation of feeling constantly confused, less than intelligent and down on yourself - all while having deal with someone who not only has a God complex but can do no wrong - you will always be made to think you are the problem and that you are doing a great deal wrong when you are there. I have experienced the following comments - isn't that what I pay you for, your not doing this right - I can't have this, there were a bunch of people I could have hired for this position, you don't listen, your notes are a mess, I am sensing irritation on your end - don't know if it's your pride or what, that's not how we do it here, I remember everything I hear, I have a photographic memory, I have to explain this to you so I don't die of cancer holding it in, it's all about the detail you have to get it right, I don't care what you or anyone else thinks of me, this is what bugs me about you - you don't listen - write it down, we already went over this you are wasting my time - don't make assumptions! The man is constantly late, he loses things, forgets what he tells you, has no regard for your time, when you ask questions you're made to feel like you are interrupting him - he expects you to walk in and know everything in one day - no room for error or to ask more than a tolerated amount of questions - when his internal equipment fails (FAX, copier, computer or server) its your fault. He creates excess work by not following up on his responsibilities - the employee turn over is very high as noted in the other posts so no one knows what is going on, the detail as far as folders and data is all mixed up, you are basically hired, harassed and made to feel less than you are - I knew after the second day I didn't like this man I should have quit then but I am not a quitter and strive to succeed - don't do it to yourself - I second or third or fourth he could honestly have bipolar disorder (seriously) as he doesn't even show a single sign of remorse and is very all over the board in his temperament. I am sorry all you other posters had to go through this same experience but thank you for posting - you gave me the strength to walk away from this without coming down on myself - its helped me come back up from this wretched experience!
