my child-free coworkers constantly complain about people with children

Ask A Manager

They are both committedly child-free dog parents and seem to have a lot of resentment about how society relegates their relationships with their pets to second class status, and on a basic level I very much agree: as someone who worked closely with parents and children in a previous incarnation of my career, I feel very strongly that the way parenthood is pushed on people as The Only Way To Experience Real Fulfillment is major b t and hurts children as well as adults.

I have a spider phobia and my boss has a spider, can I ask to give my raise to my coworkers instead, and more

Ask A Manager

I work in HR for a national health care provider. I don’t care what his hours are or when he’s in or not. So if you do talk him about it, I’d just ask that you be careful not to imply that I’m part of the group that’s concerned.”. For what it’s worth, it’s true that people really shouldn’t “work from home” while also caring for small children on a regular basis. That’s why most companies require people who work remotely to have child care.)

my coworkers keep trying to find out what my chronic illness is

Ask A Manager

— comparing me (usually positively) to their own children, introducing me to guests as “our child prodigy,” etc. Most let it go at that, but a couple of them –“Barb” and “Sandra,” who are the most frequent offenders with the “child prodigy” talk — asked for details I wasn’t comfortable giving at work. And it’s bizarre and gross that your manager told you they were “just showing they care.”

Ask A Manager

Like, when she had to be out of the office, she sent an email to the whole group saying “I have to attend my child’s Playcenter today. It’s not like other child care. I said that I’d love Lizzie to be aware that people choose different kinds of care for different reasons and it’s good to respect those choices.

coworker uses icebreakers in every meeting, is it wrong to fake enthusiasm in a job interview, and more

Ask A Manager

It’s possible that the reason she said no to that particular request was that she doesn’t want you to work from home as a substitute for child care — because with very young kids, that generally means you won’t be getting much work done. With the original offer, she might have assumed your baby would be at day care while you were working from home. It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go….

It’s four answers to four questions. Here we go….

screaming toddler on work calls, telling references their recommended candidate was horrible, and more

Ask A Manager

My manager told me that on a recent call, this employee was providing an overview of a new system and in the background, everyone on the project team could hear his screaming three-year-old child. As a result, I provided coaching during our next check-in call, sharing that I was not sure if he was aware that others could hear his child. He said that this was an early morning call, he on the west coast, and his child was fussy that morning, in another room.

can I ask my company to pay for a cat sitter when I travel, my coworker calls me “honey bunny,” and more

Ask A Manager

Obviously it is completely my lifestyle choice to have and support the cats, and if I had shared care for them it wouldn’t even be an issue. Sadly, you can’t really ask for that, just like you wouldn’t be able to ask your company to cover child care expenses while you traveled. I’m very careful not to leave the room a mess: I take all my food trash out to the kitchen when I’m done and don’t leave even a granola bar wrapper in the wastebin in the room.

how to answer when an interviewer asks “what do you do outside of work?”

Ask A Manager

She says I should never mention in interviews that I have a child because, for example, one of the interviewers might be having trouble conceiving and to hear about my kid is painful and unnecessary. and I don’t have a lot to say to this because a lot of my time is spent doing things with my child. It’s not because your interviewer might be having trouble conceiving and so will reject you for mentioning your own child.

my employee works from home too much

Ask A Manager

It’s often at the last minute, although half the time, it could have been a planned thing (like child care coverage while husband is traveling for work). The other half of the time, it’s an unplanned thing (like car troubles or a sick child).

interviewers who show up late, can’t find parking at my job, and more

Ask A Manager

The preschool of my eldest opens its doors only at 8:45 so dropping the child off earlier is not an option, nor is changing schools – schools are assigned by the local government. Nor do I have family nearby who can help or can afford to pay anything more on child care. A few months ago, we had a company-wide meeting where the CEO announced that the entire company would be relocating to a different state by the end of 2017 or early 2018.
