It's a really long story... but basically my district manager employed a new manager for our store on a friendship basis (she conveniently happens to be BFF's with her parents), who decided to screw me out of the promotion I had been working towards for over a year.
I made a complaint to the DM, and she laughed it off and then told the manager everything I had accused her of in my 'confidential' meeting.

So. Shit hit the fan; she went mental at me; I got fed up and walked.

That's the brief version... There are other more trivial reasons on top of that though.

Really sorry to hear that Auto - especially as it sounds as though you worked really hard there. What's the plan?

That all sounds very wrong to me. For starters anything that's confidential should be just that right?
Hmmm...I'd go to the CAB and find ways to make their lives hell!

I have no idea what I'm gonna do now
I have another pay packet due at the end of Dec. but it really won't be for much because I haven't worked the full month.
I'm thinking this is a good opportunity to start looking at Uni stuff, so I'm gonna take the free time I have now to get my portfolio together properly and pray to any/all gods that I can find one to accept me!

I thought that. The company reckons it has an 'open door' policy, so you're supposed to be able to talk to managers, district managers or regional managers about anything in confidence. The problem is they all have their heads up each other's arses so they gossip about anything and everything.
It's not even just my problem... for example, my friend from a norwich store got pregnant and told the DM in confidence... by noon the same day I had heard about it from 2 other stores
I tried the CAB, but the local service is shit and there's never anyone to pick up... *sigh*
