I've posted about this before but lost the post & I haven't done anything yet but I want to.
One of the people I work with doesn't like me. He's never said that but it's obvious to me. He used to be the manager but resigned and rejoined the team of worker bees. New manager is amazing.
This guy, I'll call him 'Eric', is quite passive aggressive & is the head honcho of the only real 'click' there. So he has a 'team' of another 4 staff members who part take in what I'll call bulling.
They (all of them but I'm 100% sure it's under the instruction of Eric)
*Completely ignore me when I attempt to talk to them
*When I do insist on a response they basically snarl at me with up turned lips
*Completely ignore my requests, attempts to contact them via text, email & phone (to the point where I emailed the manager this morning to say 'Eric is refusing to get back to me can you please get an answer out of him')
*they go for coffee/bring each other coffee every morning, offer everyone else one (but me, even when I'm right there as they are offering everyone else)
*all good mornings or good byes are either ignored or met with a snarl.
*they bad mouth me & my abilities, confirmed by numerous people who have over heard
*they sit around reception & have what I call 'click meetings'. When I've joined the table (in attempt to break the ice/join in) I'm either stared at, or one by one they leave the table.
This is also basically what happens when I attempt to join there before/after work car park chats.
I have brought this up with the GM, RM & BDM. They're advice to me is to 'ignore them, they're contracts will be up soon & they won't be renewing them, that I'm doing a great job, they want me with the company long term, keep it up.'
I'm starting to remember why I was a quite achiever at school.. In this job I am moping the floor with KPI's, marketing & advertising.
But I'm now at the point where I feel like crying but I don't want to give them the satisfaction. It hasn't always been like this. It all started when Eric lied to the GM about me undermining the company and I called him on it to his face in a meeting with the GM.. But the fact that he did that in the first place suggests to me he had issues with me before then.
Anyway.. How do I make it stop?!
