Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about being assigned a partner who is incompetent: She just relies on my husband to do everything and tell her what she should do; it’s like he’s doing two jobs! His immediate boss won’t do anything; should my husband go over their heads?
My husband works at a very small company where the workers are split into teams of two. Since the beginning, my husband was teamed with a completely incompetent person (all the other workers said they’d quit if they were teamed with her). Even after three years, she still doesn’t know a thing, and she has shown no interest in ever learning. She just relies on my husband to do everything and tell her what she should do (it’s like he’s doing two jobs!).
