Those of you who work in the corporate world need to learn a few lessons, in case you are newbies. The ones with years of experience in this field surely know all the perks and downsides of this type of structure. Dealing with the HR department is part of the ordeal, and the list below aims to show why that could be a real burden. Not all HR people are difficult to work with, but there are some that should never really be asked for help.

1. The boss

Now, this is the kind of thing that some people, unfortunately, know that never ends up as it should, and people who had to be punished for their behavior walk away.

2. The stories

These two stories are both unacceptable, and especially the second one really made us think about the way people handle information. This is a story that should have never happened in the first place.

3. The exec

It seems that nobody knows more about the ways an HR team works than the person above them – the executive director. In this case, one former exec was explicit enough for us to see how things are.

4. The complaint

Here is how things usually go when one person complains about having problems with the upper management. You could never expect to be defended, we guess.

5. The camera

Wow, this is one very serious situation, and we believe that these people had all the right to report it to the highest authority. Still, nothing happened after this discovery.

6. The head of HR

Here is one really huge no-no that should never happen at any company or office. It seems that people who allow themselves to do this need to reconsider their behavior.

7. The person

Wow, this is something that we would have never believed we would see, but it seems that things like this happen too often, unfortunately. As you can see, this was not justice.

8. The worker

Here is one person who decided to share what things are really like from inside the HR kitchen. All that these people do most often is trying to get the information they need without any real caring.

9. The mask

Here is how some HR people would react when they are asked to do what they were hired for. In this case, the person who turned to HR for help had every right to do it.

10. The salary

The thing about this post that we like the most is that it points out one simple truth that everyone should take into account. No group of employees can become a family of their bosses.

11. The real job

Image Source: Reddit

This is how things usually go when you don’t want to deal with the people in your company anymore, but the sad part is that you never get paid what you earned.

12. The view

This is the reality when such problems happen – it seems that people who need to have their rights protected and up being neglected by the ones that should have protected the said rights.

13. The term

Image Source: Reddit

Here is how one person was able to become the object of investigation for literally nothing. It seems that some people tend to overdo their job, and that is not okay.

14. The budget 

Image Source: Reddit

Wow, this is one of the things that we have really low tolerance for. Trying to have a good time on company expenses while others do all the work seems a bit inappropriate, we think.

15. The answer

Now, this is how HR should never act, and we believe this person had to be fined and fired all at once. It appear that some people have no clue about what to do in their line of work.

16. The facility

This is what everything related to a company merger leads to in most cases. As you can see, the result of the ordeal was the loss of quality people.

17. The sister

Image Source: Reddit

Here is one short story that explains why many people avoid working for family-run companies and corporations. This is almost never a good idea, we guess.

18. The meeting 

Image Source: Reddit

Here is how incompetence looks like. Trying to deal with someone who did something wrong in this way is absolutely unacceptable, and you can see how one person got scolded for nothing.

19. The notice

Image Source: Reddit

Wow, people working at an HR department sometimes go out of their way to prove a point, but it is almost never on point, just like in the story described above.

20. The report

Image Source: Reddit

How many times have you heard about this before? We guess one too many. It seems that HR people would often take the upper management’s side, regardless of what happened.

21. The warning 

Image Source: Reddit

It appears that the type of control you expect to have from your superiors is sometimes either too much or too loose. In this case, the HR department seems to control literally everything.

22. The warning 

Image Source: Reddit

Here is how one person decided to step in for her colleague and did something very daring. It seems many people are fed up with the HR department being above everything else.

23. The bosses

Image Source: Reddit

The things people have learned from their time spent at a corporate structure here and there include bitter experience with the HR department. This post perfectly sums up another huge problem – bad bosses.

24. The survey 

Image Source: Reddit

Here is how things usually happen in the corporate world. As you can see, this person went through a lot and a couple of years later, it was proven that she was right from the start about this and that.

25. The real job

Image Source: Reddit

Well, the post you see here is enough for you to think about the lengths people would go to not admit something is wrong with their company. It seems that these managers are bound to have limited success.

26. The position 

Image Source: Reddit

Now, this is something that most people working for large corporations have surely seen before. It is one of the things related to the activity of the HR department that we don’t like at all.

27. The sessions 

Image Source: Reddit

Well, there you have it: the simple way HR departments and managers interact much too often. This is a thing that always leads to employees leaving and zero trust in the company’s values.

28. The big company 

Image Source: Reddit

It seems that some HR people never really understand the essence of their job and how important it is. Keeping things a secret is a must, and we understand that better than many employees who are hired to manage the HR department.

29. The exception 

Image Source: Reddit

Now, this is the kind of thing that could annoy anyone. This person got in a situation where they wanted to help, but could not because of obvious reasons. This is not how HR people should behave.

30. The manager 

Image Source: Reddit

This is one of the thousands of examples we could give to you that show everything wrong with how the HR departments everywhere behave. Things are often too wrong to be the way they are.

31. The reviews 

Image Source: Reddit

HR people sometimes do the kind of thing that is inappropriate, to say the least. This post reveals one of the worst ones: trying to change employees’ grades in order to reduce their pay or remove their bonuses.

32. The report 

Image Source: Reddit

Here is how sometimes it takes a lot of effort and determination to do the right thing and to achieve victory when injustice was about to settle. We know that this happens more often than not.

33. The question 

Image Source: Reddit

Now, this is how people would react if they know their rights. No HR could force you do disclose such information, and you should know better not to say it.
