I would like some advice from the Hive on dealing with a pretty sucky situation.
I am having some pretty irritating problems with my very passive aggressive assistant. I am in a secretarial share with two other colleagues, and my work is constantly being neglected, because she has poor time management skills. I will ask her for help, and hear nothing from her until the end of the day, when she says she was too busy to handle it. Which means, I have to stay late to get things accomplished. She also takes many, many, many personal calls (long!) throughout the day, which I normally wouldn’t care about. However, she isn’t doing the work I asked her to, because she is on the phone! There are a lot of other issues as well; attitude when I ask for help, super defensive and mean when I ask her to redo something that she did incorrectly etc. I am just at a loss at how to deal with this.
I plan on speaking to the office manager about these issues, but don’t know how to bring it up, without sounding like a beeyatch.
