How to Spot a Boss From You-Know-Where

I have some seriously amazing bosses, but I haven't always been so lucky. And I'm willing to bet that you, too, have a manager (or two) you'd rather never have to speak to again. Check out this infographic to see how just how bad your boss' behaviors are, how big a toll they can take on your life, and most importantly, how you can spot a boss from you-know-where in an interview so you never have to deal with one again.

Bonus: a rundown of the 10 worst bosses in America, so you can steer clear of even sending your resume to these guys.
