Bullying a Fresh Grad
I read all the stories posted and I see there's hope to ending bullying at work. I'm a fresh grad already working at this company for more than a year now and was assigned to a boss that was known for having a really high staff turnover.
I was handling a category alone in a retail company without team-mates. The job is already so stressful and my boss makes it worse. Why? Given the fact that I do all the job of a 3-man team, my boss tells me I'm stupid, schoolish and weak. She even makes it a point that during divisional meetings, I will be reprimanded in front of everyone. I'm compared to people with experience and I'm usually getting bypassed. Bypassed in a way that I'm the only one who can't be informed and if I don't know it, it eventually be my fault. I just felt incompetent.
My relationship with my family, friends and boyfriend was severely affected. I cry everyday and couldn't even eat at work since I need to work every minute of my shift just for me to not work overtime. My work has been called mediocre, crap and all sorts and have everything not approved. Making me have to work over and over again.
I'm exhausted and stressed out. I couldn't sleep every night.
