Q & A

Sorry, the question should have been:  Do you like your coworkers helping you with something that involves a lot of directions and it’s easier doing it yourself (not herself)?

    • Ok since I’m in management at work it’s my job to make sure my staff is trained. If its at the point where it’s easier for me to do it then I don’t need them on my payroll.

    • I hear ya on that one Vikki.  

      Now for me, when I first started doing pricing and price audits or at the end of the month I would have over a thousand price tags to put out on the shelves. I would tell other co-workers or the managers I didn’t need any help. Not because I was that good, but because I just like to do it myself and not have anyone get in my way. Or I do things a certain way and the other person wouldn’t know my way of doing it and they would ask me, I can’t find this or I can’t find that, can you find it for me and then that just slows me down.  

      But as I thought about it each time I had a lot of prices to do, I started to think, ya know! Maybe I do need help and I would end up staying late at work cause I was doing all this by myself. So I now actually ask for help or when the manager ask me “do you need me to schedule someone to help you?” I tell him YES! ...lol, I’ve learned my lesson. I appreciate help now and I get off work on time.happy

    • Hi Vikki and Frannie,

      I understand you both.  It’s great to have coworkers who want to help you out because the work will get done quicker. I’ve paired up with others whether I asked or they asked to help and work got done quickly. However, some people refuse help or if you do help them they are hovering over your shoulder and checking out your system and say you‘re not doing it HER way or redo it.  That can be so annoying to the point that you want to walk away.

    • Well where I work, we have very good team work. But for awhile there, I just didn’t like any help. I guess I was being a bit stubborn. But it’s good to accept help, and yes, you get things done faster as long as the other person knows what they are doing too.

      And I know what you mean about someone hovering over you. If they want your help, then they should tell you how they do it and then leave you to do what you need to do. When I accept another co-workers help, I explained to them how I do it and then let them do their thing. The only time I speak to them is when I’m asking if they have any questions or if they are doing ok and then I leave them alone and continue my work.

    • Frannie hit the nail on the head.  “As long as the other person knows what they are doing.”  That’s important, and if I can have a person like that, then yes, I’ll take help.  Otherwise leave me alone so I can get on with it.
