How Stupid!

So I found out my evaluator gave me a good but not great evaluation. And my 2 coworkers were allowed to fill in their own evaluations. So emailed a note to myself and I sent it to their evaluator too! Do not ask how! But I talked to her and she is mad!

With Love, Honor & Respect for all of you...no matter how I argue or disagree my heart is full of love for you all...

At u
At them

Right?
Over here that stuff is private and it doesn't matter how right wrong or indifferent it is you should not b discussing it with others
There is an unwritten rule of keep it to yourself

Instead you should have asked what is required to improve

Well first off, do you have a list of duties and accomplishments that you've made to help your case of warranting a better evaluation rating? You can counter it, but since you've emailed something that seems inappropriate, it appears that your chances to make your case are diminishing.

ThisOne is correct, it doesn't matter what rating your co-workers received as this information shouldn't even had been revealed to you. You can't go to your boss and say "well Suzie and Katie got good evaluation reviews and I deserved one too", not only is it unprofessional but it is unethical to compare another employee's evaluation results to yours and then take that info to your boss.

Think about why you received a low rating on your evaluation before you start asking questions to your boss. Did you receive any feedback during the review period that allowed you to make changes and/or correct any mistakes made? If so, was this documented? If not, it's not out of the ordinary to ask why you received the rating you did and what the expectations are. Most importantly, it is better to have a FACE TO FACE meeting with your boss instead of emailing. Emails can get misconstrued sometimes and for important situations like this, there should be an in person meeting, or if your boss is located in a different location/office other than yours, a conference call can work too.

Good Luck.

I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.

First I did not get a poor or low rating. It is good, it is above average. My issue was my co-worker was given an unfair advantage by being allowed to fill out her own evaluation. If there happened to be layoffs, the evaluations could be used as a deciding factor. So every point counts.

I did not intend to tell anyone. I meant to sent the email to myself, and I accidentally added my co-worker's supervisor. So I went to the supervisor and told her and asked her to not read it but to just delete it. She read it anyway. The person I did tell was the one that knows what happened.

First, why are you emailing things to yourself? If you want to remember something, text it to yourself or use your private email to email yourself. I mean, you know that several people where you work can access your work email ... right? Your boss, the folks in IT, etc. If there's anything you don't want anybody else to see, DON'T USE YOUR WORK COMPUTER.

Second, you gotta be extremely careful to review the recipients whenever you are about to click "Send". A LOT of damage can be done if you send an email to the wrong person.

Third, are you saying your two coworkers filled out their own evaluation and their supervisor used it without changing anything? Because it sounds like what they probably did was fill out what's called a "Self Evaluation" that many employers utilize. What the employee fills out doesn't become their official evaluation, it's just a helpful tool to remind and point out things that the supervisor may not have taken into consideration without it.

It's true that annual evaluations can be extremely important, and you don't want to be shortchanged on them. What you should have done is gone to your own supervisor and presented your own Self Evaluation prior to your boss completing your evaluation.

And oh yeah ....

Fourth, the best way to guarantee that somebody will read something ... is if you ask them not to read it!! ESPECIALLY if that somebody is a woman. lol

Last I checked good is below great and equivalent to average...now you are saying it is above average, so which is it? lol Your issue regarding whatever your co-worker was allowed to do with their evaluation isn't your business. Your only concern should be how your own evaluation was handled.

That is the point! That IS NOT in the rules! That is not suposed to happen!

It sounds like there's some sort of competition between you and the other supervisor's employees. You each have different supervisors, so why would their performance have any impact on you? I think we need more context. Unless you're saying if there's layoffs, whomever has the worst evaluation REGARDLESS of which supervisor is theirs, would end up losing their job? Then that's a different story!

As for the "Do Not Read Policy", that's actually a good policy ... but I imagine one that's difficult to enforce. All they gotta do is say they read it before you told them not to read it, right? Their word against yours, you know how that goes.
