As some of you who frequent chat know, I have been the victim of discrimination at work and have had an overall negative experience in my current job. It is a cutthroat environment with very mean and ruthless people who will smile in your face but turn around and try to get you in trouble. The privileges other coworkers receive I do not. I have been written up for things that others get away with. Recently I was given a performance review that completely ignored my work achievements (that I luckily have written record of and will give the investigator who is doing my discrimination claim) and that quite frankly painted me out to be an immature bitch whose days are riddled with conflict with other employees. BTW, 6 out of 8 hours I am working alone. It has even been hinted at that I will no longer be an employee there in the future. Because of the nature of the industry I am in and the training position I am currently in, I was unable to switch companies due to no jobs being available. I have had to go on medical leave because of the anxiety and depression this job has caused me. It has been so hard to not just quit on the spot some days.

Recently not only 1 but 2 jobs have opened up in the area and they are BOTH interested in me! I have an interview for one on Monday and am sending my resume in to the other. Finally, I have HOPE. Finally I feel like I can get up in the morning. By them showing interest it helps me see that it is not me that is flawed but the company that I work for and that I am not crazy, they truly are trying to bring me down and are discriminating against me. Finally I feel like this suffering has paid off and I am hoping, wishing, praying that I get one of these 2 positions so that I can finally be FREE.

Thank you everyone for all your well wishes. I have a second interview tomorrow! I think they are going to offer me the job then, too. I'll post after I come back but I'm very excited!

They are going to let me know on Monday, so just a couple of more days wait. Fingers crossed! The second interview went really well, too. I think I have a really good shot.

This is great news. I hope I catch this thread again to see how it's gone. If you notice, then tag me when you post again. Right on. That's awesome.

Haven't heard anything yet... Woman said beginning of the week they would let me know and it is the end of the day Tuesday.. I am hoping that they are just being slow with the process and this doesn't mean I didn't get the job. The last bit of hope I have is dwindling away.. I guess I was foolish to think it would go this well for me.

@lightning05 I'm so sorry that you didn't get it. I know what it feels like to want something so much and to have so much hope only for it to not be granted. It will be okay , I promise. They missed out on someone with so much potential but the right job for you is on its way. And that future job that you will get would've been worth it all. Stay strong and continue to have hope:)

Thanks so much everyone. I'm choosing to just focus on the positives right now in my life outside of work and use those to get me through the day. I also have a really good friend who I work with who makes it bearable. I only have to stay for 5 more months until I complete my license requirements and then I'm free.

I only really wanted the other job to escape this one, so who knows. The grass might not have been greener. I appreciate everyone's support!
