    How to really deal with bad supervisors?

    Not an issue now, but back in the day I had a supervisor no one could stand to the point where most of the team quit.

    How do you all deal with one? Just in case I ever fall into that situation again.

    Become the supervisor. Either get rid of the current one or move to a different group.

    If I 1v1 the supervisor, I will probably get fired. Not sure how to replace him.
    I haven't worked in a large enough company where they have multiple accounting departments. So that's out of the question.

    You don't do that u srs? You never say anything to or about your boss that is negative. Never say anything positive either. Your supervise is fine. Your work environment is "okay". Work is work.

    I don't know about my prior supervisor being fine. I mean half the people quit. But I do agree not to say anything negative about prior employers. That only leads to bad chit.

    I once got a real ar*e*ole as manager in a toxic company.

    I had 20 years experience and told him he is incompetent.
    I was fired.
    Then the whole team quit and went to the competition.
    He got promoted, that division was shut down at that location.
    His managers were promoted too.

    I got a great job in a great company.

    See that's what I did. Half the team quit, no one can stand the guy other than a few select people who are unaware that he is an ass to everyone. Also he had around 50 years of experience. He was the the type of guy who tells everyone he has half a century of experience and rubs it in everyone's faces.

    He picks on new guys only (not girls) and asks them technical questions that there is no way for them to know just so he can laugh at them. Luckily, he was hired after I started working there so he couldn't pull that crap with me.

    Eventually quit because he was making life hell. Even though the guy couldn't print a PDF to save his life, I held in my resentment.
