Has anyone ever felt they work in a toxic and hostile environment? Please tell me about your situation. I am starting to feel this way about my job, but I’m not sure if I’m overthinking.

I am at a toxic school. My principal is completely objective and points out our weaknesses. I never hear about my growth or what I am doing right. This is completely opposite of how I have been trained to communicate with my students to encourage growth.

My principal is opposite he has been so positive In the past letting things slide that now people do what they want and treat people how they want. I feel like I’m in high school.

My school is like a high school clique. It sucks. I'm new and all the old teachers, principal and VP are buddies and have created an unwelcome environment. I don't trust anyone to talk to about issues and concerns I have because i know it will not be in confidence. Ive been struggling because I'm a great person and co-worker to know. I've only ny husband to talk with when im stress or need advice. Crazy right!

My school environment sucks and verges on awful. The worst thing is they don’t know it. I worked in the Middle School before being transferred up by my superintendent at the time. I saw what it was like to work in an amazing place. I can see this is anything but amazing.

like

Same here. I wish I could tell my principal me leaving would be her loss, but she makes me feel like a throw away teacher. I feel like I have to suck it up while looking for a way of escape. Can I apply to other districts without listing her on my application?

do you have anyone at your school you can talk to about this? someone who is dealing with the same situation that you can trust? if you do, ask them where they are at. districts are just now starting to post for next year. it never hurts to look and you deserve better than how you are feeling right now.

hang in there! find a friend you can confide in, whether at your school or somewhere else. we all need an outlet. keep reminding yourself you are doing this for the kids

P1.Currently work as a sales associate who makes minimum wage in CA ($15) but is always available for more hours, I am always reliable to my job when needed. They soon asked me to be a key holder, temporarily with no pay raise. I would be opening and closing the store and registers as well as handling money in the safe. I would also still have my obligations as a sales associate. . After researching online, I asked for temporary pay raise of $2 which allowed my manager to negotiate if needed…

I’ve been with my company for 5 years and have never asked for a raise, I’ve accepted annual review we get without question. I’ve now realised I’m getting paid significantly less than the market rate. I’m getting job offers with almost 40% increase. I know my male peers at my company get paid significantly more than me. I love my job and my company but I don’t know how to ask for a raise 🙈 I know I deserve it but don’t know how to ask! Any guidance please ?
