Today I felt humiliated at work. I'm very sensitive, and today just honestly made me so mad. I work at a retail store, and most of the time 3 managers are there and then there's a senior sales who's below a manager and is kind of a supervisor. I have been working at this store for less than a month. I'm training there for a new opening store soon. Today begaun with him saying to me 'who's in the sports section' (that was the section I was cleaning) when I went to the back. I replied politely saying 'a manager is watching it for me cause I have to get something in the back'. He let it go. Then about 39mins later I had to get another thing at the back and he was there & he said 'have you told somebody you're away' and I said 'yeah ave told Demi'. He kept asking this why? No other member of staff gets this. by the way I'm not the only new member. Then near the end of my shift, he gave me clothes to put out. I put out this one section of men's tops which ended up to be 16 on the rail and only 12 are permitted to be on the rail. I didn't know that. So he came up to me and said 'have you put those tops out yet' and I said yeh. He went to check the tops and kept flipping them and disappeared. He came back and said 'what's wrong with that' in a very mocking tone. I said I don't know. He took a stool and told me to tell him what was wrong with it. He repeted that question about 4 times. I He was talking loudly and there was customers and staff around us. I said I didn't know so I starts flipping through the tops thinking I got the sizes wrong but I didn't. He said get down, I got down and he went up on the stool and said its only 12 tops allowed here not 16. Sort this out and walked away. Who is he to talk to me like that? Not even the managers have spoke to me like that. Should I say something? Couldn't he have said it instead of making a scene to people? I know I should've have messed up but couldn't he have just said it in a professional way other than making a huge scene

Each person is different, but I wouldn't have put up with that. Especially with others around. I would have said something along the lines of - "Maybe others here let you treat them like they are stupid, but you are not going to speak to me like I that. From now on, if I've messed up, tell me what I've done wrong and how I can correct it. But I will be treated with respect. If that's a problem, then tell me now and I will contact Human Resources and we can sort it out there."
And then contact Human Resources anyway.
I don't allow anyone to talk to me like that. Ever.1
