Hunter house Publishers - Alameda, California

Hunter House Publishers
1515½ Park Street
Alameda, CA 94501

I worked for this small (man and wife) publisher for 6 months, until my boss's (his name is Kiran Rana) harassment was just too much to take. He only hired women (except for one guy in the warehouse) and he hounded us all. At my interview, he asked to see the necklace I was wearing, and he came over to look at it. Although I was uncomfortable at the time, it was only later that I realized he had been looking down my blouse. He hired me as his "personal assistant" but by the time I started work, his wife had changed my position to editorial assistant, working in the office where she sat (thank goodness!)
He hired a young woman who was hard of hearing, put her to answering phones and then yelled at or made fun of her for  getting messages wrong.

He owned the building, and when the crappy bar on the first floor got loud, he sent his middle-aged receptionist down to deal with the drunks. He once took me to meet with a neighboring business because they guy wanted to punch him in the nose and knew he wouldn't with a witness along. (Too bad!)

I'd like to warn other potential employees that the stress of the job was incredible, the pay lousy, the hours long, the facilities inadequate (no warm water & lousy heat and cooling) and most of all, the boss a total creep.

It's been ten years and I've never forgotten my lousy experience there.( I tried to contact the state employment agency to file harassment charges, but they never answered their phone and were unavailable by email.)

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening
in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!
