boss who is

behind it, as a survey by the salary service provider

Whoever quits, often forgets an important thing to consider.

  • High demands - but low chances of success:

    The position sounds good, but your potential boss already makes it clear during the interview: A

    long to-do list is

    waiting for you here.

    This becomes particularly problematic when it is not clear to what extent the success of the company you are working for will ultimately pay off for you.

    “One form of being overwhelmed is to expect a high level of commitment from an employee without being able to articulate what will come out of it for them in the end,” warns the career

    blog Fairygodboss

    .

    This could indicate that the supervisor does not have this goal in mind.

  • Micromanagers on the approach:

    Perfectionists who shy away from relinquishing control of certain projects often have exaggerated demands.

    If your potential boss doesn't tire of stressing how closely he works with Team XY, alarm bells should go off for you.

  • Body language:

    Gestures and facial expressions often reveal more about a superior and his / her attitudes than he should like.

    If you can't deal with strict bosses at all, pay particular attention to signs of

    intimidation

    in the interview

    : If the

    person you're talking to looks you

    up and down, points at you and leans forward noticeably often, he could try to suppress you or test your resilience , warn the career experts at
