Well, I’ve been having a lot of trouble at work. It has caused my mental health to absolutely plummet. My boss is extremely passive aggressive, rude, micromanaging, negative 24/7. I come to work everyday tiptoeing around to make sure I don’t make them upset because I don’t feel like being around their outbursts anymore. Unfortunately, their incompetence has come to me as the scapegoat and I’m being put on a PIP, and we know what this typically means. While I actually love my company and would like to switch departments, this will hinder any transfer or growth, so now I’m going back to retail. I’ll be losing over 20k in salary and even more than that in benefits. It feels like I’ll never be able to bounce back and have security or anything worthwhile and that I will always be stuck at the bottom. I will also need to take on a part time job to be able to supplement my income.
I have experience in sales, marketing, and higher education. The job market is absolutely atrocious, it’s where the jobs are made up and the interviews (who gets those?) don’t matter. I have no idea where to go from here.
