It seems I am not the only person having problems with the PA. It appears she is not very well liked throughout the office. She told another member of staff that it was her or me! Very strange as I never considered us as competing and after all, I’m only temporary. It seems she doesn’t like the fact I have direct access to the CEO without going through her first. Very childish for a woman in her 30’s. I am just getting on with my work and enjoying it very much.
