  • Difficulties with training managers?

    Essentially for a few months now it appears my training manager has taken a huge disliking to me for no particular reason, often losing my paperwork and contracts while still having everyone else's and threatening to give me the heave ho if I don't pass exams and have loads of stuff signed of by the end of my 1st ship of my second sea phase. They are really stressing me out a lot and I'm finding it impossible to talk to them about issues regarding work, on more than one occasion they have insulted me using me as a bad example in front of possible new cadets. Fellow cadets have noticed him treating me poorly aswell. Has anyone else had a similar situation? Any advice you can give?

    Your agency will have a grievance procedure, however, prior to going down that route you're going to need evidence. Keep a log of all phone calls and incidents of a derogatory nature and keep a record of those who witnessed it and check that they would be happy to help you.

    If you want, you can send me a PM we can have a look at it in more detail, but this sort thing royally pisses me off.
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

      It's difficult because we usually have 2 managers, one of them quit who was replaced by the current, and then the other quit too. Just finding it difficult because I personally am struggling a lot with college work being fd when I was supposed to be hnd and all the lecturers keep suggesting i contact my training manager, however I just feel like it's giving him more ammo against me effectively

        Try not to let it get on top of you. It seems you have two problems really, one struggling with the work load and the other dealing with Mr. Nasty.
        Your main priority has to be getting the academic side of things in order - I suspect your problems are mostly flowing from that. If you don't think you're going to make the grade as things are then you really do need to bite the bullet and meet up with your company and put it all on the table.
        As GM says, you could look at putting in a grievance, but that's not going to help you pass the FD.
        Quite often these situations became rather 'claustrophobic' and you can feel like the world is against you - there is also a feeling that there is nothing that you can do resolve the situation, I suggest sitting down and prioritizing the issues and the best way to deal with them individually.
