Get ready for a serious venting session!
I'm having a terrible day! I work for a company that consistently goes back on their word. While that is typically a tough environment it's even worse when you work on 100% commission. I was told to help the company out and help work on a client because a colleague who was out of the office more so than in it and took more vacation than was allotted (this colleague is gone now). So because I'm a good employee I helped them out. I brought in the sale after working it from start to finish. I was told they would make my time worthwhile and pay me. Today, they went back on their word. It's not a surprise, which is a problem. How do I continue giving my all to a company that doesn't respect me or keep their word? There is no trust. I can't quit because I need the money. I want to rip management’s heads off right now. I want to kick and scream! Instead, I'm trying to put together a thoughtful rhetorical. The sad thing is I keep hearing 'we just need you to take one for the team. A bit of humble pie if you will...' WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? I'm certain I've heard this before and yet I'm still dealing with the same B.S!
I'm so mad I don't know what to think or how to express myself. I honestly can't think right now. Do I stay at the office? Or is that giving in? Do I leave to make a statement? Does leaving make it seem like I don't care? I do care! I care a lot! (for some reason...).
I'm stuck in a bad place and really want out today. I don't like feeling unappreciated and I don't like not trusting those I work for. What are my next steps? I have to be strategic in how I talk to them and how I fight for what I deserve.
Anyone have any words of wisdom?
