According to the Human Rights Campaign website, National Coming Out Day has been held every year for 30 years on the anniversary of the second March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights Oct. 11, 1987. HERO adviser Brittany Stegeman helped work the table Tuesday, which displays a pride flag and offers an opportunity for students to write encouraging notes to those questioning or considering coming out.

I think “work” here as a transitive verb means the following:
c [+ object] : to do work in, on, or at (an area, event, etc.)
She works the Northeast region of the state selling insurance.
However, “work” can also be an intransitive verb. What is the difference between “work the table” and “work at the table”? Are they interchangeable here?
