New temp-to-hire position and my co-workers don't like me
I've been at my new temp-to-hire position for about 2 months now and after 90 days if all goes well it will turn into a permanent position. At first, things were great. I picked up everything very quickly, was on my own by day 3, my coworkers were super nice, the work was perfect, the pay is amazing, ect. It
almost felt too good to be true.
For the past 2-3 weeks though, I have been feeling this tension growing with one of the women I work very closely with and I cannot figure out what went wrong. It started off with a little bit of attitude here and there and now it's at full blown sabotage . She will make me jump through hoops (unnecessarily) to do way more work than needed for her own amusement and to make me look like I don't know what I'm doing, withhold information, give me wrong information, take all of the work to make it seem like I'm not doing enough, telling other co-workers how I've messed up xy&z even though 9 times out of 10 I haven't and just loud enough so my boss can overhear it too. And I could go on and on.
I am a hard worker. I offer to help others with anything when I've gotten my work done. I come in early sometimes and stay a little late if needed. Just all in all eager to learn and do a good job. I do all of this, because I am a temp-to-hire and this job will turn into a permanent position of all goes well. I am trying to show them that I'm a hard worker and want to help, but I'm worried that it may come off to them like I'm trying too hard or trying to show them up or something? I'm not sure, but I'm driving myself crazy trying to think of what I could have possibly done wrong. I'm worried that this could potentially cause me to not be hired on permanently at the end of the 90 days, because she has been there over a year and I don't know if she could have any sway with me getting the offer or not. I have tried being nice, I have tried to not come on so strong and treat her like she's the boss and let her see that I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes, but should I do that at the expense of my job performance? I don't think it's right that I should have lessen my performance to make her more comfortable. I'm having to decide what will have a bigger influence on getting the offer: laying low and doing the bare minimum so I don't have any issues with her or working to my fullest potential and showing my boss that I'm an asset. Recently she's even turned another woman that's been with the company for a long time too against me.I'm just worried with both of them against me, it could affect my bosses decision when it comes time to decide if I stay or go.
Does anyone have any advice? I asked her in the beginning if I had done anything to upset her and she said no and that she liked me, but it's gotten so much worse since then. Also, I really don't think telling my boss about it is a good idea, because I don't want to seem like I cause drama or bring it to his attention if they haven't even mentioned their dislike for me to him. Could problems with them cause me to not get the position or will my work performance be what matters most? Again, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
P.s.- sorry this is so long. ?
