I began working for this company in 2013 as a temporary employee and am proud to say that I was able to accomplish the goal of becoming a permanent employee and have been able to advance in my career thanks to supportive supervisors and my hard work. I have never had any issues and my performance reviews have always been great. I believed and was a marketer of this company mission whether at the job or not I was this company.
Until the past year or so, my department has been slowly reaching the point of disaster and sadly no one seems to care. I am lost for words to describe the pain and humiliations I’ve encountered in the past year or so. The most concurrent event occurred on Friday February 15th when I was informed (by someone other than my supervisor), that the flex time had resumed for the department. However, I was not to be informed because I would not be allowed to participate.
I am aware that the granting of a department’s incentive might not be awarded to every employee however, a supervisor should always avoid conflicts, gossip, and chaos between their employees. I believe the situation was not handled appropriately and I should have been advised by my supervisor of what was going to occur verses finding myself caught up in a situation where people are forced to talk behind my back. I felt extremely overwhelmed with anxiety and nearly brought myself out of character when I noticed the murmuring and slight laughter as some where getting ready to leave but did not want to make things obvious to my eyes.
My current supervisor has no comprehension on what it takes to manage a team nor how to keep a business and her employees afloat, I’ve never seen At his company’s business the way it is today.
A supervisor should provide support and not schadenfreude or cause chaos and gossip between co-works nor lie to create conflict in the work place. Supervisors are there to lead, manage, motivate and push their employees to greatness. I have had to counsel employees crying destruct due to this supervisors lack of empathy and compassion towards her employees, but I never thought it would happen to me. This has reached a point where I am receiving professional counseling to learn how to cope, but every time I think of returning my blood pressure starts to rise and I must think of my health.
Therefore, due to the lack of support, and unacceptable hostile work environment, it saddens me to have to involuntarily resign my position with the company.
My life is currently not in any way the same as it used to be. As I search for employment I’ve been found to ask myself what now where do I go from here. I work so hard for what I have and now I’m afraid that it’s slowly going to be taken away. I owe on my utilities bills, my car loan, thank the Lord O was able to inquire for food stamps. What an emotional roller coaster I don’t even remember the last time I had to search for government assistance.
I pray this does not last too long and I am able to find employment with a company that would appreciate all my hard work!
