So yesterday, as part of the internship program, I had to give my review of an intern’s performance and overall skill set. In the review, I was honest and did not recommended him for a regular position within the company. As a result, the sales manager had a conversation with our CEO and accused me of being “…a bad supervisor that refused to help his fellow coworkers.” She also mentioned that she felt uneasy and unsafe while working alone with me in the office (we start working at 9:00 am but the CEO and IT Manager always arrive after 10:00am), and asked if it was possible to have my keys removed or change my shift, so that she would not be alone with me in the office.
I have always been honest (maybe too much), responsible and as far as I know a good employee. However with the sales manager’s recent comments I’m afraid that I might lose my job. Is there anything I can do to work out the problem with the sales manager or something I can do to protect myself from being fired?
