Toxic working environment
What are some examples of toxic events you guys have faced at work? Be it part time or full time?
Here’s mine – currently working in a small shophouse as a marketing/admin. But as i am the only employee inside, i am doing literally everything. He even asked me to wash n mop the shop once every week, which i agreed since i had a pay raise from 2.3 to 2.5.
Long story short is that, everytime i give an idea for something, he disagrees steaight away and says it will not work.
However, few days later, be it him seeing online or someone else telling him, he suddenly proposes back the idea back to me and ask if that is a good idea. (Wtf?) He just doesnt trust me in anything. I feel that he doesnt give a fk about this shop too as he is always doing other things and not things that are related to this company.
I am even handling HR stuff like finding people to hire, with him not helping much at all and just give his opinion without much action. I know he is the boss but, i am the only one doing stuff, cant he help when this is his company?
- Were you hired for labour, or were you hired to do the thinking?
- (OP) Hired more for thinking, and is related to social media marketing. Also i have nvr once feel appreciated at work for the things i done
- Higher ups don’t take your work seriously, your ideas are dismissed.
They talk to you as if you don’t understand things. But when someone else of a different position asks similar question they get a good response.
Company treats your position as selectively invisible; they need you to do tasks but people of your position are never truly given credit or recognition or ownership of projects.
Refusal to give or give vague instruction or direction. When you do stuff of your initiative boss says it’s not good / not relevant. When you do ask what you should do, get accused of lack of appropriate initiative. Your boss tell you do x, you do it as instructed, month later accuses you of doing x, which is against ‘rule abc’.
- (OP) Sounds like what i am facing now, But what tilts me is i am the only one who is there to help him now, since it is a small shophouse that needs marketing, and i join just to gain experience as i am young. But he is still very rude
