Along with 95% of my fellow employees, I was placed on furlough 3 months ago. Last week my boss called to say my job would not be reinstated for at least two months, maybe longer. In the meantime, I could stay on unemployment or return and take one of two jobs in other departments at a significant pay cut. I asked to think about it before deciding. Over the weekend I talked to the manager of one of the departments to learn more about the job. I also talked to the HR director about the pay and decided to take the job which began this week. Every person I saw, especially the directors of the company, looked at me incredulously when they saw me at work. It was not because I was working in another department, something else was going on, I could feel it, and it made me really uncomfortable. Later that day one of the directors, who is notoriously loud mouthed and negative, came to talk or rather, complain to me. His gripe was about how cold and vicious the other directors had been while deciding how to deal with lost income and too many employees. In other words people were going to be fired. He said he had almost lost his job. Then he said something that shook me to my foundation, he said that I was on "the list," however he thinks I had saved myself by taking a job in another department. So I was supposed to fired and he confirmed that was why everyone was looking and acting so strangely when they saw me at work. I did not need to know this. Why would someone say such a painful thing. I'm already very stressed, struggling with loneliness and uncertainty, and worried about paying my basic expenses, and this insensitive jerk feels emboldened to inform me that I should be fired. I don't know what to do. I can't stop thinking that my future is tenuous and I could be fired at any moment. I'm so angry I want to go to HR and report this director for spreading confidential information and terrorizing the hourly workers - namely me. But I don't think that's a good idea. It would probably backfire make me look worse than I guess I already do. I'm not comfortable talking directly with thy guy about how his comment made me feel. So I guess I just have to live with the knowledge that the leaders at my company, which includes my boss, want me gone. At least I have a job for now and I'm grateful to my new manager. But I feel so vulnerable and unable to trust anyone at work right now.
