Question: I work in an office with three other administrative people. One of the other admins and I have a good work ethic: We need to keep busy (and we are very busy), and have significant responsibility. The other two people do not have enough to do. Therefore, they're on the Internet, they make personal phone calls, and they visit a lot.
One of these two people is also not a team player. She will not sort/deliver mail if someone is absent, won't do a room set-up and won't offer help to others.
The other productive person and I talked to our boss two weeks ago. She admitted that she's aware of all that is going on and knows that the other two admin people do not have enough to do. I believe she is trying to find more work for them, but I queston whether it will really happen.
We don’t know where to go from here. We have suggested having phone reports run on these two people but our boss does not seem to want to do this.
The real problem is that, when I see them talking or on the Internet, I get very angry. I need some help in handling this problem, because even though I love my job, I don’t even want to come in to work anymore. -- Totally frustrated
