So I had posted here previously about having issues dealing with a catty boss. I had, as recommended, taken the complaint to my HR team. Everything went well with my HR person, and I was beginning to see some changes with my relationship between my boss for the better.
And now today I was told I would be moving into a role that is essentially a demotion. I feel hurt and betrayed by my HR team and I am not sure what to do at this point.
Because of obvious reasons I cannot quit my current job, but I don’t feel like this is something I can live with. It feels ungrateful all things considered as most don’t have a job, but I feel like the walls are closing in and it’s a struggle to even think about coming into work each day.
I am looking for any advice beyond tough it because that is what my parents have told me and that is honestly making me feel worse about this whole thing. I feel worthless and trapped in a job that has betrayed my trust.
Edit: I apologize my response was vague. I went to HR to discuss some issues between my supervisor and myself. All was well and after our second check in, I had mentioned interest in different roles in our company and how I would like to take some time to speak with someone in the design department.
My Hr rep agreed it was a good idea and said she would get in touch with someone there. She also mentioned that the department had previously used contractors and their may be an opportunity to transfer there.
Well for the past two days my boss has been asking me all sorts of questions in regards to my experience with different design software. And then she stuck an appointment on my calendar about transfer opportunities. You can imagine how excited I was!
Well this morning I found out instead of the design department I am moving to the warehouse. I currently work in invoicing and billing so this move makes no sense. So now I am left with the feeling that my boss intentionally gaslit our conversations.
