I hope you'll have mercy on a "baby" poster, as I'm having trouble finding the right place to ask this:
: Applying to a hospital as a Nursing Assistant (tomorrow - full-time, which I've seen once in a year); quit my previous job over emotional abuse issues with former supervisor
: This lady had not worked in 20 years but gets hired by a clinic manager as a favor (they are friends). I learn soon after getting hired that the person before me quit because of this same abuse. A few weeks later, my co-worker leaves as well. HR is notified a few times regarding this manner and a formal complaint is entered. A few months go by, the abuse falls on me - day after day. Manager sees the problem and I actually overhear HER tell a co-worker of mine that she feels sorry for me! Mrs. Manager then tells me to hang in there and "we'll get through it". Well - nothing gets done. A few more months go by - same stuff continues. I call HR to file a complaint - they tell me to discuss it with my manager again. Hospital policy specifically states that when there is an issue with a manager, the complaint MUST be taken up with HR immediately. This did not happen. One morning around 5 am, I call the supervisor and tell her to get her "butt" into work, because I won't be coming in. Yes, it felt great. But during the last few weeks, the manager turned on me - told me I might be having psychological issues and should see a counselor. I
was the problem.
At any rate, I have summarized this on a few applications in the best way possible, without being "finger-pointing" and so forth - HR reps then tell me they want to see someone who has more job stability/less job-hopping. I've worked at my family grocery business for 15 years and just entered the medical field. I know what they really mean. I understand interpersonal communication and am not some crybaby who can't take it. How do I resolve this issue? I want to be honest on my application. Do I not list this hospital altogether? Any of my former co-workers would give me a glowing reference, including the nurses and docs! How can I properly word what happened to me? Any advice? Thanks so much!
1 year to RN and counting!
