Want To Get Ahead But Held Back By A Supervisor

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about promotion held back because of a warning:

I want to start by saying I have a very strong personality and very confident nature, but I’m not arrogant. I have been with my company 3 years come November, if I make it that long.  I work for a credit monitoring service, so we handle incoming calls for people that have signed up for the service. We basically get mentally abused for 8 hours 5 days a week! The job in itself is very stressful. I was promoted to a client team 6 mos after being with the company. The Manager at the time recruited me from the main floor with rave reviews of my work and skills. Soon after being in the client room we got a new boss who is 2 years older then me. When I work I get focused, and was taught always do your best. But I do chat with my superiors and coworkers at times because I don’t want to appear stuck up or uptight.
