foot in mouth or knife in back (2015)
Thursday, September 23, 2010
i said something in a confrence call today. i meant is as an acknowledgement to another team and we were sorry to see them go and that i was hoping my location did as good as a job with our limited training. In hind sight i wish i didn't say it, becasue the other team took it as meaning that my location did not want the jobs, would not do them and are not able to do our current workload,
the line they took the most out of contect was when i said we are so busy "firefighting " that training is being canceled and it is not getting better. I almost wanted to say
within 10 minutes of that meeting my director - (supervisor's manager' s boss, quire escalated) needed to talk to me. I had an email and a voice mail in that time. 10 Minuites! Someone at the other site had to of left the meeting to go talk to his director for this to happen. I feel like i was being tattled on! When she asked why they thought these things, i was shocked. i wanted to ask whose butt they pulled that definition out of, but i carefully explained my side instead. Total deer in the headlights feeling. hours later i am still not feeling confident.
I hope that nips this whole issues in the bud. i contacted 3 supervisors aboot training improvements and nothing happened. why the director was never told just shows me how people don't care or are really busy.
I learned to now compliment other locations going through lay offs. it won't make them feel better and gives them a way to try to hurt you. Either way, i feel betrayed because no one took the time to follow up with me personally. they just went above me by 4 layers of management. I feel like a chump.
