On a job where I feel like the partner just doesn’t see me. He will message other staff about questions or items, but never messages me or talk to me about work, he will just message the manager.

It happens a lot with us. Best way to combat that is too just kick butt at the job. Keep doing that and people will recognize. Maybe not this person, but down the line they'll remember and your network will grow with people that recognize you're importance.

Sales assistant at a drug/grocery store. The manager thinks my coworker does great work but I've seen her putting out new products without rotating stock (so the oldest food will be sold first) and we are always supposed to check the dates when shelving new things. The problem is, I don't really get along with this coworker and I think it's noticeable to management. If I bring this up with our supervisor, are people going to think that I'm just trying to sabotage my coworker so that I will look better than her?

When you speak in such a way, others love to listen to you and listen in such a way that others love talking to you. It shows you value your team by actively listening to their concerns, feedback or suggestions. I sometimes wonder why companies ask their employees for their feedback when time and time again, they never listen to what their employees are saying.
