I think I hate my new job. I don’t know if it’s necessarily that I don’t like the position, but I’m having a hard time going to work lately. I just don’t want to go and I have copious amounts of anxiety about it. It’s really not fun.
I think part of the problem is that I went from being the office manager of my branch to being on the teller line which almost feels like a demotion. When I was the office manager, I sat at a desk all day and opened accounts, serviced customers, and worked on loans. Now I’m running transactions and providing customer service. Don’t get me wrong; I like it, but I think I feel like it’s a step down. To make matters worse, my coworker is now at the desk and I’m at the teller line and it’s almost degrading.
I’m very thankful that my pay didn’t get cut and that I got to keep my job, but I’m almost wondering if I should have asked to be transferred to another location. I almost think that it may be better. Then again, I do enjoy the location, hours, and clientele that is at my current branch. So I’m stuck. I’m totally not loving what I do right now.
What would you do if you were in my shoes?
