Dazed and Confused

Today, I was promoted. I got advice throughout the day from all of management on what I'm supposed to do first thing everyday. Not one was the same as the other. FML

Go to the highest up and mention that immediately before the shit flows down the hill to you

Congratulations on your promotion. Unfortunately, sometimes an employer will see this as an opportunity to take advantage you. You could attempt to handle that workload, or divvy it out. A combination of the two might not be so bad. I'm sure your higher ups might sympathize, if they realize what is going on. Best of luck to you friend.

Different managers always seem to have a different way of doing things. You should try having a group conversation with them to clear it all up.

Do you happen to work in government?

there should be a written out job description somewhere. if not, get your supervisor to confirm.

That's when you get all your managers together and explain that you all ask me to do different things first thing in the morning if you need to decide what I am to do first is no then I will do in the order I was told

In that case, first thing to do every morning: PANIC

You should tell them what the others are saying, "Oh, you want me to do this? I thought I was supposed to do this different task because so and so said...?

"Your job is to come in early and make coffee, every day.." "Don't forget about the pizza!" "Oh, right! And you're in charge of bringing in pizza every day for lunch..."
