Hi i am an assistant manager right now but this past few weeks i feel my manager is not communicating with me about some decisions he had made at work. I feel he is not aware that i am his right hand side on anything related to work.. Few days ago i close the store with a few crew leaders and 2 regular employees well he jump me and comand the crew leader to be in charge of the shift. He knew that if he is not working i am in charge. Thats an assistant manager job. Well i was pissed but i haven't talked to him and confront him about what is really going on. The thing is that yesterday they called me for a position at a hospital... Which i think is a good start since i really want to be an EMT. But i dont know what to decide. I had move few hrs from home to be in this position as an assistant manager but i feel they not giving me my place. What can i do?
Hi I Think He His Guilty About What Did to You On That Incident Base So I think You should approach Him Firstly Let's Seee What Happens.... Move Forward Good luck
I agree on that
From what I'm reading you're just trying to come up with an excuse...
You're an ASSISTANT MANAGER, and you FEEL that your MANAGER is not communicating with you ABOUT SOME DECISIONS. You FEEL he is not aware that YOU are his RIGHT HAND on anything related to work. ...Base on a FEELING...Um!
What makes nonsense is you stated: "A few days ago I close the store with a few crew leaders and 2 regular employees well he jump me and command the crew leader to be in charge of the shift. He knew that if he is not working I am (meaning you) in charge." What when wrong here? And, Why would He (your manager) dismiss/reprimand you for doing your job? And, Why haven't you talked to him about what is really going on?
It sounds like you are creating an Unnecessary Conflict.
Go with your heart.
Go be the EMT you want to be, retail is a cut throat job, overworked underpaid. Soynds to me as if your manager wants a different assistant.
Move forward the door is open so walk in it
It has been several months, what did you decide to do?
If you know that you are doing your job well ,and they have nothing to complain about than let him know how you feel as long as your job perfomanc is behind reproach.
I think too much thinking wasting your time, try a few days or weeks and after take decision..you ate not start yet and make you unsecure..Life is to try and take a risk and gain experiences..Tomorrow you can talk of bases of experiences not bases unsecurity and fears..Be brave ,follow your intuitions and explores new thibgs and challenges..You don't lose nothing, do you?
Stand up . Be blunt, jump him and talk to his boss. Don't back down. Have confidence but be humble
