So a few weeks ago at my new job I've had for 2 months, my boss screamed at me and berating me in front of the everyone over little stuff.
The first time in the day, he yelled at me for taking a loan application and leaving right after when actually I took a loan application he put out and then called the applicant and then didn't answer, so I went to the bathroom. When I came back, the applicant called back and a coworker took it and he yelled at me for it which was bullshit and then when I said sorry, he started yelling at me and accused me of being high but in reality, I just had a hard time sleeping the night before work.
By the end of work, I had to verify a co-applicant on the loan before they could send these documents that had to be signed to finalize the loan and I called the co-applicant, verified him, and put a note in the system and was gonna notify a coworker in charge of the documents but he was busy so I was going to wait and then my boss came up to me and screamed saying how the fuck am I supposed to send these out if you don't notify me and said I was on the cusp of being fired. He even managed to say I'm worse than a 4 year old and on top of that said he's surprised no one said that to me and then screamed at me to log off and then leave the office and how I better prove to him that hiring me wasn't a mistake as he "never makes mistakes".
Even earlier in that week, he told me and the other coworkers that we better get our percentage of loans funded up to 20% by Friday or we are fired.
Now having said that, nothing has happened since that but I'm afraid that at some point I'll do my job and then something little will slip up and he'll scream at me again and then get fired.
It's one thing for a boss to pull you aside and do it but in front of the office is unprofessional, humiliating, and a bad work environment. Negative reinforcement and fear as motivation doesn't work.
Who else has had a boss like this? If so, how did you handle it?

I left my job when they didn't appreciate how much I was doing for them given the circumstances. People need to be able to stand up for themselves and not take that kind of shit from a boss. When it affects you to a certain extent, it's time to call it quits. That goes for relationships too, mind you0
