    A change of supervisors is nothing new to my preload, seems every year or so it happens.
    Its interesting to have these SUPs approach you and ask for the dirt on your fellow employees.
    I understand a new boss needs to learn all about the ranks bellow him but I get very uncomfortable when I get these questions such as "Who has the most attendance problems?" and who has the most trouble keeping up?
    Its not my place to rat on people so I give him vague answers and very little critical information on my co-workers.

    Is this something that newly assigned Supervisors do very often?
    I remember being vetted by the higher ups before, and that was not a fun experience

    Just tell them "I don't know" . The sups will figure it out themselves in time.

    Let them figure it out. You don't throw your union brothers under the bus not matter how much you might dislike them.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Have seen many Supes come and go and have still never seen 1 that impressed me at all, or had that it factor, or ROCKSTAR MENTALITY to get things done properly, differently "OUTSIDE THE BOX THINKING" and correctly. Basically what im saying is, none of them had that TRUE LEADER feel, that you actually had faith n them to steer the ship in the right direction and actually cared about his crew with compassion and wanting his crew to be sucessful. Not everybody is born to be a true leader, just the way it is, alot of people are simply content with MEDIOCRITY AND FAILURE.

    When that has happened to me, I tell the new Sup "I have heard about you, but only form an opinion about others once I get to know them"
    "I am not basing anything about based on what others say, but by firsthand interaction with you."

    It's just like when you're talking to the police. You have the right to remain silent, plead the fifth. If there's one thing any decent human being cant stand, it's a fxcking eat!!!

  14. What an idiot. That's not how you start off new with a group of people. Already off on a bad foot.

    oldngray nowhere special

    Sups are low on the totem pole so usually make a quiet entrance. It is the center manager's and above who come in with the attitude of kicking butt and making changes in an attempt to look good for their bosses.

    You're over thinking this way too much. It's a simple, "I don't know."
