Not everyone will like you even if you are sweeter than a candy.
People will hate you for no reason and while this should not worry, a boss who hates you can make your working environment unbearable.
How your boss treats you will definitely affect your performance and this will only give them more reasons to hate you.
But how do you know if your boss hates you or is simply trying to get the best out of you?

Below are 7 possible signs that they hate you:
1. Continually criticizes your work
Criticism is part and parcel of every job and it’s good for growth. However, if your boss sees nothing good from you and is ever criticizing whatever you do no matter how hard you try, then they honestly don’t like you.
Micro-managers are no doubt the worst people in any working environment. While some bosses are micro managers in nature, you need to give it a second thought if you are the only person being micromanaged.
3. Your gut
That little person inside you hardly lies. If you have a feeling that your boss dislikes you, then it’s very possible that indeed they do.
4. Direct to the point
While you should remain professional at work, it’s never that serious sometimes. But if your boss is ever straight to the point even during briefs and chats that are supposed to be casual, there must be a problem. This is especially so if they engage other employees in a friendly manner.
5. You do jobs no one wants to do
When your boss hates you, he will give you the responsibilities that no one else would accept to do. Even if it’s not part of your job description, they will make you in charge of serving coffee or clearing the mess after everyone has eaten.
6. Humiliates you in public
A good boss will correct you with patience and in private. But if your boss scolds you and humiliates you in front of your colleagues, they are simply bullying you because they hate you.
7. Never agree with you
You can never be always wrong. But even when you are 100% right, a boss who hates you will always get a reason to disagree with you.
