Are my bosses upset that I declined a promotion?
I've been working for my company for over 3 months and I was offered a promotion 2 days ago, but I had to decline it. It was an assistant position to the president of the company (sorta like secretary.) The hourly pay is quite humble, but the responsibilities and tasks are too much for me to handle. I truthfully told them I don't think I have the skills to complete the tasks, and although they told me they respect my decision and they wouldn't think badly of me...I'm starting to believe that wasn't too true. The vice-president of the company is still being polite and responsive towards me, but my president has been rather quite towards me. He doesn't even make eye contact whenever I speak to him. When I spoke to the office coordinator this afternoon, she told me the president was upset that I didn't take his offer. That he really wanted me. Now I'm worried I might've made a mistake & might let me go because the company won't find me useful anymore. How do I shake this feeling off?

It's very likely you offended the President by not taking the job. Managers usually don't offer a job like that unless they've already decided on who they want in the position. It's not really your fault that the boss is upset. You honestly let them know the job wasn't for you. Whether or not it will blow over... More
