Last week my workplace hired a couple new employees. Often times there are only 2 or maybe 3 of us working at one time. I noticed often times they are standing there doing nothing and I think it may be because they haven't been trained what to do. I haven't received any specific instructions suggesting I should be training them, but it seems logical given they are brand new and there's no one else working at the time to train them. I noticed one of the new hires has a bit of a bad attitude and got snappy when I told him something he already knew. Also I had asked him to do something simple (like sweep the floor) and he didn't do or say anything.
We (thankfully) just got a new manager who is much more hands on. I could ask her if I should be giving them feedback?
A comment says (paraphrasing) why do I care. 1) If part of the team isn't doing their job, others have to pick up the slack or explain it to the manager. 2) when at a latter time the person is working alone and doesn't know how to do something, it may reflect bad on me
