Do any of you have experience with pushy coworkers? The kind who won't let you do anything without them "helping" even after you say "I've got this"? I can handle stocking the shelves by myself. So frustrating

I hear you, it's too frustrating when people won't let you do your tasks just because they think they can do it better, maybe just to mark territory. Best of luck in coping with them.

Oh yeah, sometimes it's people who've been there for a while and have their "special" way of doing things and they can't stand seeing someone else do it

OMG YEAH THAT'S JEN. Sorry if I got excited hahaha. I have spoken on several occasions with my coworker and there is no way around it. I think overly collaborative personalities are great for customer service, but she is very difficult to work with.

Sometimes it's well-intentioned, but I agree it can definitely come off as annoying and overbearing. You can try talking to them and being honest about how their "help" makes you feel

This is so frustrating! I have a coworker who likes to "help" mostly so she can chat the whole time (she's really social...I'm not). It's such a difficult situation to handle without causing workplace drama.

Do you think they might be trying to strike up a conversation and don't know how to approach you? It's just a possibility that's worth looking into. Or maybe they're feeling overwhelmed in their own duties and would like someone to jump in and help them sometimes. Maybe?

IKR? I've never figured out why people do this. I think my coworker is just trying to act like she's in charge and is so desperately needed that no one can get anything done without her. Then she complains about how no one helps her, it makes no sense

Sometimes I ask the more experienced employees to step in and help the newer ones, it's a good way to get them to develop better techniques and usually they can get a lot done quicker. Your supervisor might have asked them to contribute more to team efforts and less on individual projects and that's what they're trying to do

Therefore it was harder for this person to find a new project. How to investigate if this is correlates with microagressions and discrimination towards black people? Any ideas?
