Played by: Steve Carell
Where He Works: Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pa. He is a manager.
Management Style: Scott is the kind of boss who desperately wants to be your friend. And so he often forces his workers to attend events with him outside of work. For instance, Scott requires attendance at his annual awards show for his workers called, "The Dundies." As the self-appointed host of the program, Scott takes turns singing covers of songs like "You Sexy Thing" while his workers stare on helplessly.
He's also famously incompetent and shockingly insensitive. At one point, Michael injures his foot after he steps on a George Foreman grill and he's disappointed when his workers don't seem to treat him with enough sympathy when he shows up on crutches. So he invites a colleague who is physically disabled to discuss what life in a wheelchair is like.
