My boss and coworkers are

I work at a hotel, and they recently opened a new restaurant in our same building. I spoke with the hiring manager at the restaurant about possibly working there part time, and he told me to bring him my resume and we could go from there. When I returned to work after my day off, my coworkers were being kind of rude, and making odd comments and laughing. Someone even tore my name badge off my storage cubical. I didn’t understand what was going on... until I found this:

By the front desk was the resume I had given to the restaurant manager, except it had ‘corrections’ written by my current manager all over it. And as I read it, the jokes my coworkers had been making suddenly made sense- they had read it too!

I’m so embarrassed and violated and hurt. I don’t know what to do.

Any advice? Thank you! #advice #management #bullying #resume #coworkers #discrimination #violation #privacy

Time to find a new job - find an establishment that will value your drive and dedication.

It's time to bring the pain! Don't bother with minions (e.g. human resources) go straight to the top, President or V.P. Start first by finding out their contact info via LinkedIn and in mail them. Next, send a "handwritten" not emailed letter directly to them. Lastly, contact the Department Of Labor and see if your right to privacy was violated. Don't walk out that door before you've taught EVERYONE a lesson! It's time to stop taking crap like this.

You should always have 2-3 people read your resume for typos and grammatical errors and misspellings. It just needs to be someone with a good understanding of English grammar snd spelling - even if it’s a kid.

Oh and by the way - get a new job. It’s terribly unprofessional for the person you prepared the resume for to have shared it. And your current manager marking it up, and obviously gossiping about you - is so unprofessional that it makes it a lousy place to work.

For one thing don't let your coworkers get you down. Next thing you should have looked some were elsewhere because he should have not done that but he is just as bad as your coworkers beware don't look for work at that restaurant . Good luck

Clearly you have "false leaders" the restaurant manager who gave your resume to the hotel manager are both false leaders, no competent leader would ever act in this manner, I would seek employment elsewhere and not discuss your plans with co-workers, once you have a firm new position, leave on good terms.

that is bad that they left out your resume for people to read. thats an invasion of your privacy, that should be addressed. i would leave only because if your coworkers are making fun of you that will continue. its a shame that employers are not more respectful of the harm of doing something so foolish.

this happened to my husband with his medical records left out for his parents to see while he was hospitalized for 40 days.

You should have a talk with your manager. Tell him the truth that what was done hurt you. See what happen next.

I would just say as well as you can if still going after you getting settled and they are still acting that way. I would look at them and politely and calmly say I’m taking care of my life what are you doing with yours.
