Re: Got a new job & co-workers (fellow MA's) are mean to me

I recently quit my first CMA job in December of 2014 for the same reasons you mentioned. I was hired at a family practice straight out of school and I had continual problems with the entire office. They were rude, condescending, and unwilling to help me learn anything. I was seriously re-thinking my career choice when I found out about another job opportunity through a friend. I got the new job, and I couldn't be more happy. The 10 months I spent at the first job helped me, even though I was miserable the whole time I worked there. I learned that not all offices are good places to work for someone straight out of school. But, working at a bad office will make you appreciate a different office once you're able to move on.
