Messiah Posted October 17, 2011 Share Posted October 17, 2011 It's at an established fortune 500 company, in an office with about 45 people. I am new and in a lowly office assistant position, and another girl was hired about a week before me. In my first week a manager came and sat with me at the receptionist desk so she could train me on it. we answered phones and did some of the front desk duties, and at the end of the day she gave me a run down "If you ever need to deliver mail at the end of the day the post office box is right accross the parking lot and you can just drive over to it. If the mail bucket is full you don't have to waste your time stuffing the mail into the PO Box, you can leave the bucket right there next to the PO Box and the mailman will take the whole bucket." In my mind I thought "Hmm that's stupid.. someone could steal it" But I didn't say anything, and I never did it that way.. Just stuffed the mail into the PO box. Well a month or so later I hear from the other new girl who was venting, "I just got wrote up for leaving the mail out! But that's how the manager told me to do mail" And I knew instantly that I was told the same thing. I asked the new girl if she explained that to the other manager who wrote her up. She said she did but the manager didn't believe her. apparently the one who told her how to do it wrong came into new girl's office "Why did you tell the other manager that I told you that?! I never told you that". I thought "Wow that's kinda creepy, unstable, and screwed up." I ended up going into the other managers office and explaining how I was also told to do mail that way and how I think it's indecent and demeaning of that manager and I have a hard time trusting her now. The other manager defends her and doesn't really seem to believe me but told me "hmm just give me a week to think about it". Her response to the situation ends up being sitting me down at a table with unstable manager, her, and general manager to discuss my "tensions" with that manager. I explain the mail thing and how we were trained and she argues "Absolutely not!" The general manager then says "I believe you both. it sounds like a miscommunication error." They just wanted it to blow over and not do anything about it.... How can I go into work everyday knowing I have an unstable manager who would easily pin blame on me? I think I need to quit...
