    Have you watched the new CBS show, "UNDERCOVER BOSS" ?


    If not, why not?

    Do you enjoy it?

    The first episode featured Waste Mgt company facility right here in the Salt City.

    Very interesting outcomes.

    I've seen a couple of them and enjoy the show a lot. I think it's a great premise and hope that there really are some changes in the companies. :)

    I really liked the 2 that I have seen.
    It's really fun when the employees say that the boss is not good at the job. :laugh:

    I have watched and do enjoy it. However I always get the feeling that I am watching an hour long commercial for whatever company is featured.

    I also don't think it is completely accurate because all the people are aware they are being taped for this "documentary". So even though they are not aware the new guy is the boss, they have to be aware that the boss will very likely end up viewing it.

    If they somehow could use hidden cameras I suspect we would see a much different show. But then I also suspect that not to many companies would sing up for it either.

    Also I don't see how this show could continue after one season.

    But overall it is entertaining, and I enjoy watching the inner working of many of these companies.

    I haven't seen it, we really do not watch reality tv. Have seen some commercials that looked interesting though.
