    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I'm sorry you are feeling that way. It can be really rough. It sounds to me like your current supervisor is being inappropriate, but it can be tough to address that at work without being labeled a whiner. Is there a way you could have a quiet chat with one of your former supervisors and maybe ask their advice of what to do? Let them know you want to do your job but provide concrete examples of how you are being treated.

    Or maybe this... you could come to another superivsor, or even your supervisor, with a list of all the things you need to do, and just say "I'm having trouble with this. Do you have any suggestions of how I could juggle these different tasks?"

    Alternatively, if no one treats you properly, feel free to go to HR for advice. That's what they are there for.

    You deserve to be treated like a human being. If your job is hard, at least you need to be able to do the work, not be swamped. Don't metaphorically kill yourself for a paycheck, you help pay their paychecks after all.
