Sorry for the long post, and the use of so any quotes... also: Don’t get upset with the tone/bluntness of my comments, your “tone” factored into mine:
The reviewer has only been in position a couple of months, and the senior rater maybe 5-6 months. Maybe.
Does the Rater, Sr. Rater and Reviewer all meet the necessary requirements set forth in AR/DA PAM 623-3? Then there shouldn’t be any complaints.
That's what has me so pissing mad, that this atrocity has been seen by so many. Hell, she needed help (by an NCO) to rewrite it because the initial one she wrote was so inconsistent and poorly written.
This is the way it SHOULD be! NCO’s should assist their Officers in PROPERLY writing NCOERS! If anything someone did you a great service by helping her write the NCOER, this is NOT something to complain about. If you don’t know how to write an officer’s OER, then what makes you think the CPT knows the best way to write an NCOER?
Personally, I don't think she's ever been in charge of anything. Right now I don't have any proof of that. Just an assumption.
Has nothing to do with the conversation. You are just arbitrarily angry
So, 3 people is 'everyone'? 3 Officers at that, who are inclined to play the 'buddy-buddy' system? Sure, NCO's do it, too, but it's mostly out of protection for Soldiers who have little to zero say in their own defense. The NCO side is more of a 'circling the wagons' than anything else.
When it comes to your NCOER, 3 people is “EVERYONE”… the only people who really matter are those with Signature Blocks…. As evidence by the fact that everyone else who “loves you so much” apparently could not help your eval look better.
It's all good. I got ammunition, and I'm about to use it.
If you have ammunition, then use it properly! There is an appeal’s system in place. Additionally if you have issue with your eval you should set up meetings with your Rater, Sr. Rater and Reviewer (all separately) and discuss the eval.
So, anyway. In the 'Army Values' I get all YES's.
Congrats on doing what you are supposed to… almost like saying “I pay my bills!” or “I aint never been to jail!”
… one of her negative bullets: "continually missed deadlines and didn't follow through on several projects".
This is a vague accusation. Define 'missed deadlines'. She doesn't. What does it mean? Put some context to it.
Another negative bullet: "requires persistent follow up from supervisor to ensure work is completed on time of even completed at all".
Again, vague. Here's why I say that. If you're an overbearing supervisor, asking about a project three times an hour when the time needed for the project takes say, 2 hours, why in the hell are you asking me every 15 minutes if I'm done? Or if I had to stop working on said project to go do something that you or another rank of authority wanted me to do, wouldn't THAT affect the 'deadline'?
Have you ever written an NCOER? Both of these are very well written bullets for a negative or “needs improvement” type write up. It actually clearly defines the deficiency… your rater has NO WAY to put the details of the events, so I don’t really know what you are wanting here??? How much room do you think the person has?
Additionally, stating that she is overbearing, or micro-managing and using that as an excuse will NEVER work. Everyone has a different leadership style, so you have to ADAPT and overcome. One leader might micro-manage while the other is hands off, however you must be able to perform for all types of superiors.
She's one of those types that tries to please higher, at any expense. That and she has virtually no respect for anyone with less rank than her. Trust me, Sarge, she's not that liked in the unit.
Look at who is talking about a clear and complete lack of respect… the same guy who calls a SFC “Sarge” with the intent to disrespect me and my comments/opinion (on an internet forum or not) I never would have brought the comment up (it honestly doesn’t bother me that much at all) but I wanted to highlight the hypocrisy in your statement. Hey pot, watch what you call the kettle… the truth might burn a bit.
Back to the document. Another comment that was changed, she said I had 'unlimited potential'. I didn't see much of the original, but that line somehow disappeared.
Of course the line disappeared, from her other bullets you highlighted it looks like, in fact, your potential is VERY limited at this point.
Also, I'm not fat, not a PT failure, and no UCMJ. The only negatives she has to work with is whatever perception she's trying to create.
So the bottom line is that you and your boss don’t get along… and instead of busting your ass to change your style with the hopes of making the work relationship better, you thought you would say “Fuck her!”.. and maybe up until NCOER time you thought this was working… but now that you are getting an eval you don’t like, its time to attack?!?
If you would have conformed during the rating period and worked WITH your CPT instead of against her, maybe you would have gotten a better rating.
I have NEVER seen anyone be GIVEN a 4/4.. however I have seen plenty of people earn one... I am positive your leadership (NCO Support Chain especially) would not let this fly if they totally disagreed.
I don’t know you, and I don’t know your situation, but from what you are telling me there is nothing too shady going on. The bullets seem to match the rating (if anything there should likely be a Needs Improvement on the blocks with the “misses deadlines” and “requires persistent follow up…” bullets).
What I do know is this: You seem to not want to listen to your Rater and I can draw that conclusion from your ranting here and your decorum in dealing with advice and questions asked by myself and others. If the way you handled my simple questions is any indication of your overall attitude, then I am not surprised there is strife between you and your supervisor.
However, if you would like to continue the conversation, open you mind and see where senior leaders are coming from and their thought processes, and take the defensiveness out of your comments/replies (they will do you no good at this point) then maybe myself or others can help you.
