I once worked for a company where the president was that way. He was constantly making the sales manager do stuff for him on the weekends. One day the sales manager told him to stick it.

Another guy who was the company’s first employee and a dear friend of the owner, told the president that he wasn’t working another minute for the s.o.b. but he would still draw his paycheck, still drive a company car and still have an expense account. The s.o.b. couldn’t do a thing about it. But that wasn’t good for me. That employee was my boss and two weeks after he “quit” me and 4 other guys he’d hired were fired.

Where you really see it is in small owner operated businesses, where the company is run like an extension of the bosses family/slave farm.

The ones where the boss says he’s having a BBQ/roofing party at one of his rentals on the weekend and expects his people to show up to be friendly, or maybe you can come in on Saturday and wash your truck on your own time.
