Clerical at Tri State Propane

Drama at #Tri-StatePropane

The customers were never angry with me. I was courteous and respectful to the customers, both in the office and over the phone. As for co-worker, yes she was difficult to work with. At first she was nice then she started messing with the work I had done, changing things to make me look bad. When she couldn't destroy my work she started making up things, saying I was causing a hostile environment and she couldn't work with me. She went as far as saying I leaned back to hit her. Corporate office had no problems with my work, they complimented me on my job performance. This other person had worked with the company approx. 9 years. When she complained to the supervisor we answered to, of course she took this person's side of the story. She fired me on Friday after the company gave me a Christmas Bonus on Thursday. This is a very ugly story. One that can't all be told here. The person who made these acquisitions against me also had held my order for propane when I ran out last January. And this time she wouldn't let me order because of her rules about payment, not corporate's. Here again just another ugly mess that can't be told here. I was not the only one who had trouble with this person, the drivers at Tri-State had had problems with her for years. Good people have been fired because of this person. I would like for someone to know the whole story, but it is hard to trust anyone at corporate, especially the person who hired fired me. Sorry for being so detailed with this question. I am not out for vengeance. But other people are having to deal with lies and stress this person dishes out simply because she believes it is her office and she can run it anyway she wants.

That sounds terrible, Virginia, sorry that you had such a bad experience with your co-worker.

Hopefully you're better for it in the long run - recognizing how important culture is can be helpful as you're considering future jobs. Your personal experience here could actually be a great asset for you as you go into new work places and work to steer the culture in a positive direction.

It sounds like corporate had complimented you on your past performance at your old job, so hopefully there's someone there that can speak to your good work. Good luck bouncing back from this experience, we're rooting for you!
