Ten Signs Your Manager Doesn't Respect You

By Liz Ryan

I am coming to the harsh realization that I might have to look for a new job.

I liked my job for the first two years but the past year has been difficult. Our manager Marcia quit and the General Manager of our location took over our department rather than hire someone new to manage us.

I never hit it off with the GM, Jack, and now that he’s my direct supervisor, it’s very difficult.

For the past year I haven’t made any suggestions although for the previous two years I made several recommendations for ways to improve our processes, and Marcia approved them all.

I’m not going to say I was her right-hand man but I knew I was a valued member of the department, and I don’t feel that way anymore. Jack has never asked my opinion about anything. In a year, we’ve only met twice one-on-one and the entire meeting each time was just a recap of my progress on my projects.

Jack basically ignores me. I don’t know what I might have to done to offend him (apart from having a great relationship with Marcia, who also never got along with Jack, which is why she left her job).

I haven’t done anything in the past year that I can add to my resume, but even worse than that is how discouraged I feel. It’s hard to come to work when your boss doesn’t seem to care whether you’re on his team or not.

Jack is friendly with most of our teammates, but not me. Several people have asked me “How did you get on Jack’s bad side?” and I have to say “I don’t know.”
What do you think I should do?

Sit down and confront him one on one. It may not be what you think it is. Ask him if he is being hard on you because he sees a talent in you and wants you to exceed at your position. If you don't ask you won't know.
