I do Administrative work in a busy community space At the moment its only at "informal chat" stage, and I have received a "letter of concern" I was completely unaware of any meeting taking place so had no no time to prepare anything unlike my boss who had several sheets of notes. I'm a bit miffed about a couple of points made So I signed a fire safety sheet where I sign to say all the fire doors are open, after my boss goes round and unlocks them all. One room was locked shut because equipment was stored in there. I went back to the office and signed the book, after checking everywhere but the locked room. I was going to get the key, unlock the door, and check the fire exit. Before I could do that my boss asked me have I done the checks I said (too honestly perhaps) that I had apart from Room A (the locked room) ....I was then told "You might think I'm being a bit pedantic but you should follow procedure etc etc) I said in future I will do so and carried on my merry way. It was then escalated into a "informal chat" and I received a letter with the points discussed. In the letter my actions were described as "reckless and dangerous" I disagree with this terminology (even though I realise I should have signed the book after all doors checked) The staff at weekends never sign the book despite opening the doors themselves. (Is it only "reckless and dangerous" when I don't check the door and sign the book, or is it more "reckless and dangerous" if they're not checked at all and the book not signed. Why is the book not signed at weekends? The weekend staff no nothing about the book. What if they forget to unlock a fire door? There were a few other nit picky points for example printing off too much paper, (a 50 page document, accidentally) My boss likes to micromanage and is constantly asking me what I'm doing, and sometimes she even tells me the order e-mails need to be replied in! She is also not in a good mood a lot of the time, comes across as extremely cold and I feel I can't work to the best of my abilities, and any errors by anyone and it is like the end of the world. All bookings have to be ran past my manager before I am allowed to book them in I feel any reply to this letter and "informal chat" will cause even more tension in the office. I realise the best way to deal with micromanagers is to suck it up and play their games. But I feel like if I do this, then I will not grow as a person, so do i quit and find alternative employment?
