I work as an IT support engineer. I've been in my current position for five months.
My team lead gave me a list of resumes to call up candidates for interviews, I was supposed to make a list of candidates who were interested in the job. At first, I did it, and I was okay with it. Although I didn't like the work I did it because I didn't want to say no. I did this task for 5 to 6 times, with my boss using me to share new resumes every time. It was actually his task that he passed on to me. He would then forward that report made by me to the manager.
So after doing the work several times, I started getting frustrated. Also, he talked rude to me few times while we were discussing this task. I don't enjoy calling people to just to ask if they are interested in the job profile. That is not my job. They probably gave the task to me as I am capable of doing the task but I think anybody from the team could do it. I always had to leave my work and make that report for him.
Yesterday, he asked me again to make the report. This time I told him that I don't like this task and to please assign it to someone else. I gave no further explanation. He said okay, and that was it. But his reaction was not that good and I have perceived a change in his behavior. I don't think he is going to ask me to do things other than my job role now. I am not sure if I have done the right thing.
Was there a better way that I could have managed this incident than directly telling him no?
