I’ve started a new job and was very excited to start. I was recommended the role by an old co-worker who I was close with at the time so wasn’t worried about “fitting in” as I know someone and she said it was a great culture.
It is a great culture but it’s very cliquey. My previous co-worker, another woman and our male boss are all very buddy buddy. They hang out outside of work, have all in-jokes and slack off all day. Today they took lunch orders and went and picked it up.. They were gone an hour, and then had their half hour lunch break. I waited until they were back to go to lunch and they said I should of just gone but I didn’t want everyone on the team to be gone at once.
I’m an introvert but bubbly and at my other workplaces I’ve been considered friendly and outgoing but I’m having trouble coming out of my shell because they are all so tight. There are other people on the team and I have better days when they are in as opposed to these people.
Any advice? This is a fantastic job and I don’t want my feelings of being left out to ruin it.
