Default A Soundheim Musical in the Making

Whelp, yesterday I asked my assistant manager to take me out of apparel.
I can't even write it all down. I tried to but there's too many details.
The short of it is my department manager is a lying bitch who told our store manager that I "intimidate" the other associates.
First anyone heard of it was yesterday, when we finally sat down with two assistant managers. She shouted at me, in front of them, for "always reporting on the other associates."
Which I only do when they do something I need to report about because I don't the authority to do anything other than report on them. I do not "Tattle" as she once put it. I just hate it the way I have to work twice as hard as everyone else because they're ot doing their jobs properly.
That's all I can say at this moment because I really am trying my best not to let it eat me alive.
But I told my ASM, if they have such a problem with me in apparel, I don't want to be there. Take me out of the equation and they should have no excuses for not getting anything done.
He said, "But I really like you over there. You're a hard worker and your phone ettiquette is dead on."
I'm like well, look at what she said about me. She clearly doesnt want me over there and if all the other associates are so bothered by me, I shouldn't have to walk on egg shells around them.
So he's going to fix it so that I no longer have to be resposnbile for the fitting rooms and I'm going to work in the Home department.
I hate that a department I put so much work in would stab me in the back like this but fuck them. That's all there is to it.

It's fine though. She's the only member of management that has a problem with me and there are a lot of people who wanted me in their departments. I decided yesterday to start branching out. Leaving my "snow globe" as I called it.
I loved apparel because it was safe. It was an isolated part of the store and people loved my work.
So why shouldn't I be able to do the same in another part of the store. Customers are always telling me that I'm the only person who asks them if they need anything. They're sending their friends and relatives to me because I actually take them to the product they're looking for.
I'm sorry if that makes me a praise junky but it's nice to actually be appreciated by everyone for a change, instead of only ever hearing lip service hand jobs.

And after apparel collapses, you can go back to management and let them know that when they replace the apparel manager and all the screw up employees, you'll go back to apparel, help train the new employees on the correct methods and and see to it that they clean up the mess.

Best of luck. And yeah, "tattle-tale!" is the cry of people who want to get away with their misbehavior.

I honestly think going back there at anytime would just be asking for trouble. I've gotten pretty good at leaving things behind and never looking back. If I impress the department managers in the Housewares area, why should I go back to a department that clearly has a problem with me?

Best case scenario: This manager is on the chopping block herself and is only grabbing at straws to try and make me look bad. I know she hates the fact that I essentially create extra work for her by "reporting on" everyone. Even that extra work is exactly what she signed on for, whether she knows it or not.

Worst case scenario: The whole department will lie about anyone they don't like to try and get rid of them and I'm screwed either way.

I don't like to sound paranoid but at the end of the day, I can't afford to lose the job, so I'd rather cash in on the good will if I've built with the other members of management.

After a day of being in housewares the store manager said she has never seen it looking so organized.

I got a ton of recognition from management. I was even going to have my photo on the wall. But I politely declined the photo. Actually it was less like polite and more like, I explained to the HR officer how I was honestly afraid that would escalate things between me and the department manager.

I leave her department and manage to turn a whole other department around in just a day, then get recognized it? I felt like she would continue to make me a target of her resentment.

I told the HR how hurt I was over the things she said and how I was treated.

The HR understood that I was uncomfortable but she swore to me that everyone in the upper management appreciated my effort. That was more than enough for me and I decided that if I can impress them once, it shouldn't be hard to impress them again further down the road.

In the meantime, I just want to get the bitterness behind me.
