I need to use a throwaway since my main SO account is known, so I apologize in advance. This is in the USA if that matters.
On Friday, a manager above my current supervisor scheduled a one-on-one with me, and asked if I wanted to discuss any concerns with him. We have a very large turnover rate here, but I still enjoy working with most managers, and with my colleagues who are all excellent.
When we began our discussion, I told him I enjoyed working here, and that I'd like to talk about seeking a promotion at the end of the year. I felt confident in asking him this as I've gotten a lot done, and have fixed a lot of security holes. Two other managers have also appreciated what I've done for them. My hope was to discover the best process, in his opinion, to receiving a promotion at the end of one year of employment with the company, and I had to make this clear twice.
When I asked, he immediately began yelling at me, "You've only been here... how many months?! seven?! And now you're asking for a promotion!" He began yelling rapidly, and I couldn't understand the majority of his speech. Partly due to his accent (he's a non-native speaker), and mostly due to my hearing impairment.
When I kindly asked him if we could just type in the company chat, he didn't want to do that. He kept shouting, stomping his feet, looking at me with disgust and glaring at me. Eventually, he agreed to type because I had trouble understanding what he was trying to say, and he began typing to me.
Whenever I tried to answer his questions, he kept interrupting me and wouldn't let me get a word in. This meeting ended with me agreeing that I had no more concerns to share with him...
This is a complete 180. We used to get along well until I asked about a promotion. At this point, I am not quite sure what to do. This is the first time anything like this had happened since working there, and I'm finding it very difficult to approach him now.
I welcome any advice and suggestions.
