I took this position quite frankly because I was asked to and felt flattered on some level. Since taking the job my Divisional Director has left and while she was there she didn't teach me much so I am a bit overwhelmed at times. From about 2-3 weeks in I didn't like this job an kept trying to give it time before I made any rash decisions. Well now it's been 4 months and I dread going to work everyday and have been a bit depressed. The reason I don't just quit it because my divisional just left and I feel an obligation to stay.
I have been contemplating telling my new divisional that I am unhappy and that I can hang on for a few months but really I would like to go back to the floor where I enjoyed my job and was good at it! Would you tell your new manager or just keep your mouth shut and when an opportunity opens up just take it.
by the way . . . some of the staff members constantly ask me if I'm leaving too and tell me I'm doing a good job. Which makes it harder to walk away.
