Employee Reports Rockstar Colleague To HR For Creating “An Overly Hostile Work Environment”, Gets Grilled

How many of us have felt like we could take on the world while we were still in school or right before we graduated? putting in the extra time and effort to pursue our ideal careers and work toward a brighter future? When Reddit user u/DueEstablishment8602 chose to tell a story about her job, it took an unexpected turn and elicited some surprising responses from other users. The woman, 26, had just earned her master’s degree and had begun a new job alongside Thea, a coworker who the original poster had found extremely encouraging due to her professional accomplishments.

She had no idea that her respect for the goals of her coworker would backfire. The Reddit poster said that after earning her master’s degree, she started working right away. She subsequently said that although it wasn’t her first job, she had worked part-time while she was a student, it was important to her because it was the first full-time position she had after completing school. Thea, who is currently in graduate school, had just been employed by her employer for two months before to accepting this position. Scroll down to read the full story.
