I have been in my current job for almost 2 months, where I have started with 5 other new starters. We have been doing an example project in order to get to grips with the technology and work that is involved.
I have recently been working on a number of different tasks, and I have taken responsibility for what I do, as well as owning up when it’s my mistake. I have been finding two of the new starters quite frustrating, due to the fact that they will have a private conversation (on slack) with our manager/trainer, ask a question, receive an answer and then tell me or someone else in the team what our manager has said.
I feel very frustrated about this due to the tone that these colleagues speak to me in, as well as the general demeanour when this conversation is passed on to myself or the rest of the team, in addition I don’t understand why these conversations are being had in private as it does not allow anyone else to voice what is going on.
I have become especially frustrated today when one of these colleagues implied, in a private call, that I had deliberately done a task wrong in a section of the project, when I had in fact nothing to do with the task.
How could I improve this situation while saying to these colleagues that it is not fair in how they treat myself and others in the team?
