I got this new job....
Fabulous schedule, good pay, ridiculously awesome benefits, and no weekends, holidays or call.
I hate it. HATE it. It's a tiny and very dysfunctional department.
The people who work there are entrenched. We are talking 10 plus years in most cases. They hate each other. They constantly talk about each other, but I have not fallen into this trap. I mostly keep to myself, but they are a seething cauldron of negativity. To add to the problem, this is a new specialty for me, so I am forced to closely interact with them to learn what I need to do.
I would hate to quit this job, but I don't want to be dragged into this negativity. It makes me dread going to work. Also, I caught one of them talking behind my back recently, and politely asked him to stop. I am now a target.
Any of you have to deal with something like this? What did you do?
