    Being harassed at work forced me to hand in my notice now I don't know where to go from this??

    Hello my problem is I was being constantly harassed by my line manager, he constantly intimidated me, set up unachievable workloads for timescale, set me up against other colleagues and then tell me not to trust any other colleagues ect the list is endless...after another eventful day at the place of nightmares I hit rock bottom and walked out 1 hour and 50 mins before my shift was due to end, next morning I came in to speak to my store manager I told her everything to which she replied I needed to grow up and act like an adult! Amongst other things, I felt forced to hand in my notice sad

    That sounds very rough but what's done is done. Because you walked off the job, there is no going back and you will be very lucky if they don't trash talk you to any potential employers of yours. All that you can do now is look for another job and keep the lines of communication open and whenever there is something that you feel is wrong or confusing, try to discuss it to understand where your boss and/or colleagues are coming from and share your perspective so they understand you as well. Perhaps this can keep thing from boiling over in the future.

    I would call your local EEOC and place a discrimination charge against the manager and/or company.

    I once had a job where I was with a company for 5 years. After a major layoff I was transferred to a different area. My new manager was very distant towards me. During the middle of a quarter he gave part of my territory to another co-worker (whom I later learned was his sister-in law). This territory had a very large deal close.
    To make a long story short I was eventually let go that December. I started a new job in January and exactly one year to the date my old company let me go I was in the Bahamas at Atlantis on an expense paid trip from my new employer for exceeding my sales quota with the rest of our sales team! I doubled my income that year!
    Had I not been "forced out" I would have continued to have stayed unhappy in my comfort zone with my old company. Sometimes life will push you in a new direction. You've just got to ride the wave.
    One day you look back and  you'll say; "If such and such had never happened I would have never met or done blah blah which led me to...and brought me to...etc In the end everything usually works out for the best. "Every ending is a new beginning!" Best wishes!

      Thanks for that story. It's encouraging. Especially since I was recently discriminated against by a potential employer because I am not a Christian. I now see that working for someone so intrusive would probably be a mistake!
