Wellpoint / Terrible treatment!

I worked for Wellpoint for about 4 years and had a great job. I loved working in my department and was very comfortable. I became TOO comfortable, had a couple of life changes and needed to pursue some career changes and opted to apply to another position in the company that had different responsibilities and more pay.

I found that position in a different part of the company with more pay, did a great interview, was promised more pay within 90 days of my start date of the new position and opportunities of advancement within the department. I was ecstatic. I moved to the new department and all hell broke loose.

I went from a cooshy, great paying job to a job with short tempered, rude disrespectful supervisors. Our trainers were great, but had a short time limit to train a group of us. We were rushed to be put on the phones before we were ready and were told that we would be 'chained' to our desks and would have to log the minutes we left our desk (even to use the bathroom), and had to meet strict deadlines.

Not only that, but I never got the raise, and my new supervisor told me that I wouldn't see one for at least another 2 to 3 years. I was also told that she wouldn't allow me to leave my department for at least another couple of years.

My supervisor was just given her title and was more than happy to remind us of that several times daily. She was hispanic and me being african american, sitting across from another hispanic girl, (her not knowing I understand spanish), she would come and talk to the girl across from me in spanish saying some inappropriate things sometimes.

I would speak to her supervisor and after several conversations...it was like talking to a wall. I told her that I was looking for another job. I then spoke with Human Resources to make sure there was nothing I could do. Human Resources informed me that I couldn't do anything about the lies that I was told.

I couldn't apply for a different position without my new supervisors approval, even though she lied to me, and I would have to give her a 2 weeks written notice. THIS was not fair. I asked Human Resources if a 2 weeks notice via email would work and they told me yes, so that is what I did.

I sent my supervisors' supervisor an email. I ended up having to walk off the job before then due to her getting in my face telling me to (in her words and putting her finger 1 inch in my face) 'go sit down in your seat and WAIT TILL SOMEONE COMES OVER THERE TO HELP YOU' like I was 2 years old... because I had a question... I had to leave or put my hands on her. I just grabbed my stuff and left.

She told me that she was gonna put me as non-re-hireable. So I am non-re-hireable for LIFE with Wellpoint because I was 'bullied' and not liked by a supervisor who was eventually fired for doing the same thing to more employee's. This, is not fair. This has messed up MY reputation with a company who I enjoyed working for and has left a bitter taste in my mouth ever since.

Human Resources does not care about their employee's if they can't stop and take the time to find out what is going on with their employee's. They need to investigate more thoroughly because they are losing a lot of good people!

I agree 100% Been there done that - WellPoint doesn't care about their employees and cares about their insureds even less.

Sounds like a ghetto/maffiosos type organization. Employees discussing inappropriate subjects, (ghetto t), and when you complained to HR their reaction was very unprofessional. It sounds like they don't have a grievience policy in place, documentation should have been filed along with an investigation of allegations (that you made against the coworkes not using a universal language.) Don't fret, I think you're probably better off not working in this "boiler room" cliche excuse for an orgainzation. (BTW I also think you have plausible reason for a suit, but that could just waste your time and money.)

Wellpoint is just another coporate hack company and management is pretty two faced and petty. I have no use in working for a company run by an attorney
