I NEED advice about my JOB (balancesekr)

I have a few things bugging me so here goes...

I posted here awhile ago about my job. I got a friend a position working with me and lived to kinda wish I didn't.

It definitely puts a stress on things, esp. because I give her work to do.

Here is the hierarchy:
I have a supervisor also... and he is "IN CHARGE" of me, my friend and one other guy. I give out the orders (the jobs) to make sure they get done. My supervisor likes to keep everyone feeling like they do something besides orders and assigns special projects periodically.

We are all designers and the special projects are different than regular job orders, which can be repetitive.

The Problem? ... I find myself getting annoyed that my supervisor is giving the people under me special projects which leaves me to do more orders. They are both very NEW here and they were hired because this other guy who worked with me left. He was their GOLDEN BOY. He threatened to leave, because he foudn another job and they rewarded him giving him more training and more money and he was 9 years younger than me.

All without telling me, but I knew something was up.

So he winds up leaving anyway. I spoke up, explained I was annoyed and that I wanted the same opportunity he was given. So they respond by putting me in charge of the orders and my supervisor gave himself a "get out of order free card" So he doesn't do orders anymore.

I have found in the past few months my job has been much LESS creative and my supervisor gets to do all the FUN stuff, and kinda sit around doing not much else all day.

And today... I have to train my supervisor on a special program which they sent me away to be trained in.

I am annoyed, because when the other guy was here they put him in charge of what my supervisor is currently doing and bypassed me.

I feel almost NO motivation to do my work. I am a little worried cause it is not good to be in a situation like this, with no other job lined up. I feel very frustrated and scared to voice my opinion to my supervisor.

I have a special project to work on sort of. I have to animate what my supervisor created and he wants to watch and take notes so he can learn the program.

Once he learns it, where the hell does that leave me? I am really upset, annoyed, and frustrated. And to boot, my "friend" works here now and.... I can't even talk to her as a friend anymore.

Please HELP!

Thanks so much

Hi Balance,

I think any time you are having a problem at work- or unhappy in your current position- there are basically two choices. Speak to your supervisor and explain what you would like to be doing in your position (careful of the emotions- be very professional). Or- start looking for another job. If you like your job- I'd go with the first choice. You might want to write down how you'd like to present it to your supervisor.
Keep editing till you get it just right-- practice.. and then ask him if you can meet with him/her at their convenience.
