Recently I have taken a position in Finance that I did not have much experience in. I had informed the company that I did not have a background in finance other than some classes in college. They had assured me that it was okay because they would teach me everything I needed to know. After doing a project for them for the interview and their confidence in teaching me I took the position.
Knowing I did not have much experience I went into my first day ready to learn everything I possibly could. I had tried to be as proactive as I possibly could. I spent my time looking at videos that were suggested , asking for work , various projects and anything I could get my hands on. Without much guidance I began to notice how much coworkers would converse with one another . Being nervous about being qualified for the position I was timid. Soon after I have received insults, derogatory remarks and I have objects thrown at me daily. Trying to just fit in I thought I would outlast the hazing but after awhile it has not stopped. Constantly being asked if I'm applying for other jobs or if the hazing is too much.
While I tried to focus on work I had received little to no guidance, direction or even what to study up on or even talked about work on most days. Eventually I had been handed my own project that was shown to me once or twice which I feel is very intricate. Now that the project is mine I am completely responsible for it but I don't feel completely comfortable with it and I am expected to be. I don't feel comfortable asking questions as it seems to be frowned upon with noticeable distaste. Whenever a task comes across my desk I need to ask for help. I do not foresee a future in the position because I have absolutely no idea how to do the job. I can work with the projects that have been handed to me but I am expected to enhance them and I don't know how to approach that. I have informed my boss about this but I feel as though I'm still in a limbo where they don't know what to do with me.
So my question is should I try to "fake it until I make it" or is this a toxic work environment? I would feel down on myself to miss out on the great experience and pay.
