Frustrated with Work
Thursday, May 10, 2012
So this is mostly gonna be a vent cus I am getting so pissed at someone here at work.
So I worked for my dad a couple years ago for my coop. About a month ago my manager, who is not my dad, called me and asked me to come back. Now that I'm done school right. well it pays better and its a monday to friday job with regular hours. I used to do shift work which really screwed with my sleep schedule.
Well now I'm here working in the production office, and one of my main duties is printing drawings for the shop guys, we do structural steel. My managers are great I have no problem with them.
When I have a problem with the drawings like a missing drawing or a wrong drawing or I can't open it or something then I would contact Natalie, the engineering manager, who is supposed to help me or assign someone in the engineering dept to help me.
Usually she just gets mad and tells me she's too busy to help me. Once in a while she does actually help me but she's never nice about it. So she had someone in the engineering dept help me the other day, Elena, who I emailed afterwards and asked her if I can contact her when I have a problem rather than bothering Natalie. She said yes. So I thought great now Natalie won't yell at me ^_^ so today I emailed Elena for some help. Well Natalie gets all the emails cus she's the manager, she immediately called me and told me I shouldn't do that cus it's not her job.
So now I have to deal with Natalie continually and get yelled at whenever she's in a bad mood, which seems to be all the time. and when she refuses to help me I have no other options.
I really don't want to go to my dad cus that's going over her head and using that personal relationship to my advantage. I don't want to do that right, so I'm at a loss and I don't know what to do.
I also hate being confrontational so I don't really want to go my manager here and complain about her. I'm way too much of a chicken to complain so I'll just deal with getting yelled at I guess :(
