Our expert says:
Ironically, it's not merely years of experience that adds to your effectiveness in HR, but you now know what many workers have to deal with, coping with a dumb, unprofessional, crude and incompetent boss / director. Sounds like everything else about the job suits you well enough. Maybe just sit down and discuss this with your pleasant boss, who must know exactly what you're dealing with, and may have some useful suggestions. It's your boss's task to protect you and others from the shouting and rudeness of this guy. Why not continue looking for a fool-free place to work, and discuss THAT with your direct boss or supervisor when that option arises, rather than warning them ahead of time ?
Sounds like even the external recuitment person recognized this guy for the idiot he is. Let's hope he reports it higher up and recommends that something be done about this guy's offensive and excessive behaviour.
