22 years old & first job. First month in i had nothing to do despite asking if there’s anything I could help. Bad start. Then they dumped a huge load of tasks on me with no guidance or anything.
I was supposed to ask around but theres only so much i could ask as they’re all busy.
With the deadline coming, more tasks gets dumped on me n when i ask for help they push me around telling me to ask someone “better”. Fast forward now, i have 2 months worth of backlogs.
My tipping point was when tasked to complete a stack of cases incomplete by officers a year ago. I barely have 3 months of knowledge n tasked to complete it in a week.
To make things worse the seniors were struggling so what about me. I talked to my boss about it, verge of redness all over my face, & she just smiled n told me to complete it despite me telling her i cant because its a year old task & i have 0 knowledge of anything.
I tried n kept on asking around but everyones struggling. I felt helpless i couldnt sleep & wake up with anxiety for 2 weeks.
I realy dont know what to do. If I quit, i can get away from this but when i do what if my next job has the same work environment? My minds a mess. Idk if talking to my boss will even make a difference.
