According to a survey by CareerBuilder.com, 18 percent of employees describe their workplace as scary.
The spookiness may come from the fact that their bosses bear a strong resemblance to famous Halloween characters.
For instance, 11 percent liken their boss to the Wolf Man, fine one minute, howling the next.
Another 6 percent consider their boss to be more like Dracula, constantly sucking the life right out of them, while 5 percent think their boss is the Wicked Witch of the West, always recruiting minions do his/her dirty work.
About 4 percent think their supervisor is like The Mummy, slow-moving and ancient. Another 3 percent compare their boss to the Grim Reaper, constantly delivering bad news and eliciting fear among workers.
On a nicer note, 9 percent think their boss is like Casper the Friendly Ghost, eager to help but misunderstood.
