So I have issues and need some serious help. Please no negative attitudes.
This all started because my boyfriends best friend needed a job (after being a stay at home mom for years due to family circumstances not relavent to my problem). So I helped her get a job with me at my work. I then trained her and another new girl hired in at the same time. Then about a month ago the two of them were both promoted over me with in staff. I am not going to lie and say this didnt feel like a little like a slap in the face by the company. But I kept my head up and tried harder to be noticed. And as it turned out I was not being ignored at all I was just promoted from staff to a manager. They never intended to hurt my feelings or anything of that nature I was just being prepped for a higher position and they failed to mention it at the time because the person I replaced was still employed at the time and out of respect for her they didnt tell anyone.
Now that you have the back story here is the problem. The other employees namely my boyfriends best friend still treat me as if I am beneath them. She screamed in my face this morning in front of several staff members, was barking orders at me like a general in an army, and when I came around a corner later in the day she was gossiping about me and telling other members of the staff I would have never gotten the promotion with out her. I spoke to a manager above me (my boss) and informed her of the inappropriate behavior being conducted by her and other staff members. She said she was going to speak with the manager of those employees (I am not that manager I am in a different department now) She said I also now have the power to write them up if I should chose to take that route but she asked for me to allow her to try and correct the obvious disrespect for me before I try and fix it myself. But my fear in allowing her to fix this problem is this will farther show my lack of authority. And again this my boyfriends best friend causing a majority of the problem. I was avoiding tell him about the problem because I do not want to cause problems with in their friendship but when I finally couldnt take it anymore today and told him the whole story he said he had no intention of saying anything to his best friend but he would support me in doing what ever I had to do to do my job well and he agreed his best friends behavior was completely unacceptable and if it came to writing his best friend up in the end he would still support me and it would be no issue with our relationship.
What do I do? Do I let her and that departments manager try and fix it before I deal with it myself? What are some good and bad that can come from this that I might not be seeing because I am so close to the situation?
