Then the woman who hired us left (I think was pushed out) the department, and the man who hated her took over.
This was... news to me.
My manager said, "that never happened."
I said, "I literally have emails saying it. From like last week."
She said, "It doesn't matter."
Because of course, it's not even the case that they just get rid of the lowest performer. There's that trading aspect, and the whole thing is SUPER political. So if you pissed off another manager somehow...
My manager's like, well, let's give him a few days to calm down and see where things are then.
So for four weeks, I had to work sitting with my back to this guy. Oh, they had a talk with him, and he left me alone, other than staring daggers at me the entire time.
