why do you think my department store manager screwed me over?

just quit a job at a department store where before i was hired i was promised i would be able to work in a department of my choice by the store manager, granted that it was also a dept that needed help. i was in a training class with 4 other women who were also told the same thing, sort of. some were already told they would get to work in a specific place before training started, but we all ended up trying out different departments. when it came time to choose depts, everyone got there 1st or 2nd choice, however i got none of my choices. the places i chose did need help. i was told by the store manager that she would work on it and then i was told i would be working in a completely different department i had never worked in and never knew existed. then i was told i would get support and help, because it is a higher skill level for this department. well none of that came to fruition and out of frustration of trying, not getting help, and knowing that i was in a place i was ill suited for, while there were at least 3 other depts i would do amazing in i quit. my question is, was i right to be so upset about being lied to? i just felt like i was being set up to fail, i would never put my self in that situation, and everyone else who was in training with me got what they wanted. i was a good employee got compliments from managers and other coworkers and some customers, but i refused to stress my self out over a department that i dont think the store manager even cared about. i was the only minority in the traning class although not in the store. why do you think the store manager lied? although she didnt seem like a horrible or rude person her managers who work under her, hide out from her and are always stressed. let me make something clear because you obviously didnt get it, i got compliments from managers, coworkers and customers. i left on a high note i actually made more than my sales goal. but i was not happy with the environment and although i was doing well, i would be beetter suited for the places i asked for, and someone else would have been better suited for my position. although i felt i was being set up to fail, i was not failing, at least not yet. but i was definitely being worked against. people who were working there longer than me were asking me questions about what to do. she did lie. she said not only do we get to choose where we want to work, but she did also say she would not want anyone working somewhere they hated. i couldnt tell her that i hated that department because i never knew the department existed. when i was put there, i was told you are working there, there was no choice given in that matter. and my immediate supervisor obviously was not going to say anything even tho my immediate supervisor knew i had asked for a different department she would have been my supervisor in either dept. so how did the store manager not lie?

Drop the paranoia and think' luck of the draw" - Now why would the manager lie to you? Why would strangers set you up to fail? You were trained and put to work. You did not get what you wanted, but actually no one did. Having applied to work in a different department, you should have waited. With your excellent... More
