Is all in my head or are there legitimate Issues? (Workplace)?
I was offered a position as a Marketing/Social Media Manager for a local supply store with a large e-commerce business. I made sure to communicate with owner of the job description & all the responsibilities that came with the job... Boost social media presence by growing on all relevant social media platforms, boost sales by doing targeted ad campaigns, etc.
Fast forward 4 months, the ad campaigns have boosted sales, social media presence is up, and I feel that I have contributed a lot to the business in this short period of time. The store manager, aka my coworker, let's call him Nick, is a nice dude. However, Nick keeps on trying to do my job & has even prevented me do certain things so that he could do it himself. He would make important marketing phone calls and set up marketing meetings without me??
I had to address Nick on why he set these meetings without including me in it, & he straight up told me, "Oh, well you're in charge of Instagram and FB, and not marketing." I was honestly so shocked and confused by his response. I had to explain to him that I am hired as the marketing and social media manager, and that my job responsibilities go beyond social media. He pauses & says, "well there are other faucets to marketing, and this media was a part of a different faucet".
Do you believe Nick is unintentionally disrespecting me? I mean its 4 months in and he still doesn't know my job role? This is concerning to me.

Are you in an English speaking country? Is English your first language?
I only know 4 paragraphs about you. You don't come off as a marketing manager or someone who talks in a social media kind of way.
"I made sure to communicate with owner of the job description & all the responsibilities that came with the job."
- What does this mean?
Usually the manager creates the job description and communicates the job duties to all the members of the staff.
- Did you create your own job description? Did the owner of the business agree to it? Did the owner communicate it to others so everyone knows each other's roles?
