Ive worked for this company for 2 years now and every time he comes to site he avoids all eye contact with me and ignores me at all costs. Im only an apprentice so I report to my journeyman and rarely talk to the boss. But, I just find it dis respectful that he doesn't even acknowledge a long time employee who never calls in sick or misses any days.

Don't you have enough problems that you definitely know are problems? Why go looking for trouble?

Why does it matter? Are your paychecks signed?
That's a good way to determine your boss doesn't have a problem with you.

I worked for a supervisor that was know for leaving notes and avoiding being social. I just found the guy odd. The basic rule was for us to make him look good by running a tight ship and he would only get involved if we couldn't play nicely together.
It was a running joke that the 3rd shift guy had not seen or spoke to him in person for over 3 years. We then got a micro manager and after 17 years i went and found a new job.

I know where you are coming from. I had a plant manager that I would say good morning to and he would just walk by. Turned out he had a bad back and was in pain all the time and was just focusing on walking.

I wouldn't exactly call 2 yrs a 'long time employee' .

Does he say Hi to all the other apprentices ? If so, it's you, if not, don't worry about it.

Come to think of it, you should be busy working, not looking at the boss !

To the OP: you need insensitivity training.
If that's like the sensitivity training I took (a few times !) ... It doesn't work:vs_laugh:
