I was previously at a job, that I am no longer at.
The systems and processes were really poor.
The work of even the most junior staff member was extremely complicated due to poor systems.
One person trained me, when I first started, but not extensively.
When a mistake would be made, no matter how minor, colleagues would cc my reporting manager and the team member whose work I was processing, and also the manager of that team member.
The entire time at that role, complex processes would continuously change, without notification or proper communication processes.
The mistake would be emailed to me, advising that a mistake was made, and would cc my reporting manager, the team member of the paperwork I was to process and their manager.
At one stage, I requested one main person to only send those emails to me.
I later found out that she blind copied the others.
Team members from other states who were doing the same tasks as me, were also making mistakes, as processes changed, and there was no communication, to anyone.
I am not sure if their managers were also copied in, or, if it was just me.
Around three main people in the organisation contributed to this behaviour.
At one stage, I commented to a manager that “I think she’s just trying to get me fired”.
One manager had let me know that this person was doing my role prior, had moved into another more senior role, and when they had hired me, she had applied for the role again, but they took me instead.
If I am in a new role, and this happens again, where management are cc’d in on mistakes, what should be my next step? How do I handle this?
