I want you to be honest with me. I do not want a "yes man"... all that does is let me go off on a wild goose chase that will cost me money. I want someone to tell me when I ask what they think of a plan and why. I want someone who will let me know when they have a problem that might affect their job... that way I can plan for possible contingencies arising from those problems.

I think it depends on your position. If you are a honey-pot bartender, they aren't looking for your opinion. They can get a million other girls to put on some tight blue jeans and pour drinks, but if you are an engineer, and you see a potential problem, your opinion is important. Even then, sometimes egos do get in the way, and some supervisors are going to over-react and get their feelings hurt. If they happen to be the owner, you are just screwed, but if they have a boss, go over their head! Keeping the company in business is as important to you as it is to your boss, so if your boss is a bad one that reacts emotionally instead of logically, it is time to go over their head.
Before anyone gets a crazy idea, that was so long ago, there is no way that can come back on me now. The reason I used at the time was "overqualified".

It sounds like it could be summed up with "Know your place and stay in it."
I don't think this helps much really for a lot of people trying to get jobs.
My husband had an interview the other day - he waited 3 hours and they interviewed 26 people - in groups- all at once. Then they took 13 from each group and put THEM together.
It was for $7.30 an hour/ 12 hour a week jobs.
I've been denied more jobs based on the cold fact that I am more than able to perform the said job, that I am intelligent, And able to handle problems without having to ask a million questions about what to do next.
