Bullying at work
Well I am aggravated.
I get a call from my work place about 15 minutes after I woke up. At the time frame that they called me, I knew that it was not my department calling. I work as a stock clerk and so any calls to me in regards to them would be made at 10:00 or later in the evening.
When I answer the phone, one of the assistant customer service people tell me that I have to work up front. That is not my department anymore and I was told by the manager of the store no less, that I had nothing to worry about in regards to that.
He had told me this in regards to me telling him that if I had to be pushed back to that department for any length of time, I would just be quitting.
I decided to call the representative that helps us work out work relations. We are not a union company. There are no work unions. So we have reps that are supposed to help us out. I called and left a message. The only problem now is that I will be going into work and I believe the manager whom assaulted me over the phone will be there.
I will avoid her as much as possible, and hopefully be able to hide behind my manager over my department. What I mean is, hopefully I can quickly tell him what is going on and he can stand between if necessary. That is not what I want to happen.
I will be talking to the manager of the store when he comes in the following morning. I believe he should be the opening manager. I will tell him what she said to me, and I will also let him know that I already took this above his head. I will not be harrassed, I will not be bullied.
Even if it means the detriment of my career at this establishment.
