What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know


by Jill

I worked at an after school club as a playworker and it was a really nice place to work. The manager started a new woman and immediately she started isolating me and another co-worker and just spoke to the manager. She followed the manager round all afternoon and was controlling and aggressive. She got all her own way in how the club was run and it felt like she was running it.

I complained to the manager twice who dismissed me as though I was making a fuss about nothing. Eventually my co-worker changed her hours so she didn't have to work with her and me and another girl resigned. Soon after the manager went on long term sick. It was the best decision I ever made as I felt loads better out of that toxic environment and even managed to get another job soon after at another school. I have never worked with a more controlling and manipulative person and hope to never again.
