What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Trapped In A Bad Work Environment

I used to enjoy my job, but due to behavior from new co-workers, I am considering quitting without having another job lined up.

Every day I listen to these two make comments that my hours should be cut, I'm too slow at my job, that my position should be cut, that I screw up everything I do, etc. Keep in mind I've been in this job for 5 years compared to their 20 minutes and have always had positive reviews at work.

Their behavior has now crossed over to the manager who leads our location. He now participates in gossip with them which they then filter back to me. I never had a problem with this manager until the other two employees came on board.

I reported what was going on to upper management and was stripped of most of my job duties. I asked for specific examples of how I "screw things up" and no one could give me one example.

I've also become the office scapegoat for mistakes that aren't mine. There are time stamps with name of the employee who made the errors and I still get blamed for it. The most recent one happened on a day I wasn't even at work. When I point these things out to management they don't want to hear it.

It's depressing and degrading to come to work and be treated this way daily. I've never encountered anything like this in my 20 years of working. I've quit reporting incidents to management because they turn it back around on me and never address the employees involved on it.
