Its Not Right And There's No Way Out
I've been working for a large company for two years and often get letters of commendation from the clients I work for. I have never had a day off sick and always do alot more than the 40 hrs a week I get paid for, without extra pay. I don't mind that so much as I want to help the 45 staff I have working under me and value their commitment and hard work. I treat my staff extremely well and often buy them treats to show them my appreciation out of my own pocket.
I started work doing 25 hrs a week and they offered me an extra 15 hrs a week 1 month after I started. My manager I had at the time was bullying the staff I now have under me and I put in a complaint, She was investigated and dismissed 1 month later.
I really thought I had a good job where they actually listened to the little people like myself.
The extra hours I took on meant I would be working under another manager for those 15 hrs a week in a different department. I really thought he was an ok guy, I couldn't of been so wrong.
At first he seemed to appreciate me and let me get on with it but I noticed the units he had were not up to scratch and needed alot of work, so I put in extra hours to bring them up to standard, he seemed to change overnight.
He visits them and has meetings without me and complains to our line manager about me, She doesn't bother to ask me about the problems she just takes his word for it and is very off with me, I feel like I am walking on eggshells around her now and can't seem to do a thing right, he tries at every opportunity to put me down and always speaks loud so everyone can hear him to have a go at me, when we are on our own he is as nice as pie.
He wrote a letter to one of my girls working under me to invite her to an investigation meeting a couple of days ago and told me that I had to do notes for him on this day, I said I was unavailable as I was on a course that day. He went to my line manager and whispered in her ear something I could not hear, she shouted to me wanting to know where I was that was more important that I couldn't do notes for this meeting, I replied I'm on the course you told me I had to attend, she didn't apologise and he just smirked at me, I know I should of spoke up and said that I had already told him why I could not attend the investigation but that would of just made my line manager more anti me.
I received another letter of recognition last week and put it in my line managers in tray. I watched her read it and just throw it back in her tray. Not a word was said to me.
I am at the end of my tether there is alot more that has happened but I can't see through the tears in my eyes to write anymore. I love my job.
