Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I started a new position early October 2018 with a 6-month probationary period.
In my whole career, I've never had an extension or a bad word said about my performance. I had a review in early March 2018, where my manager said, I have some notes about your performance and typically you would be coming to the end of your 6-month probationary period some points are good some are bad therefore he's thinking of extending my probationary period by 3 months. - To me, it sounds like he's already made up his mind despite any feedback or justification?
When I asked why, what does he mean please can he provide more detail... He started taking in riddles about (Get It - Do I get it), (Want It - Do I want it) and (Capacity - Do I have the skills). He said its want it in one end, and capacity at the other end and went onto reviewing my CV skills. - I assume he means capability and wanting to review my CV due to a lack of real evidence.
I'm not achieving what he expected, but he doesn't 100% confirm what he actually wants, "its, you need to own this space" I've had no goals set this year so I'm not sure how I can fail on something that's not been set.
He then he started talking about my "open side" and "softer side", like on my softer side using the word frustrated means do I really want to do what I do. Despite me saying my frustration was because I couldn't move forward with a particular task I was trying to get over and move forward.
He went onto say policies haven't been done, despite me emailing him a list of completed policy documents and he hasn't replied to this, even today 20/03/19.
He then went onto say that he felt my document proposals were grammatically disjointed and were embarrassing. I feel it because he didn't actually understand the technical aspect.
I have 1.5 hours worth of meeting riddles like this.
From me starting in early October to my review in early March to today where I don't know what's happening, where does this leave me? how long can they wait to decide what they want to do? are they allowed to give generic goals and then say I have failed?
