Very unprofessional of them. Details of other applicants should really be confidential. Anyway, good luck on getting your new job. However... something unfortunate could happen to the other resumes... >:)

Be happy that they have an interest in quality employees. Some companies will hire anyone. At least now you know you are being promoted (or not) for your skills and talents related to the job.

Actually not. As an existing employee OP has the ability to not only review the applicants but also to interview them! Sometimes a company is legally obligated to consider other applicants. OP you are in a great position. I hope you told them why you are better than these other applicants.

Sounds like they have know intention of promoting OP. The last job my Grandmother applied for she was told that they weren't going to hire her, but wanted to keep her resume to compare against their other applicants.

It sounds like they're trying to be helpful. I had someone apply for supervisor after a couple of years because he felt he deserved it but he was grossly underqualified. Maybe they were in a similar situation. OP, if your bosses have mentioned any specific qualifications that the other applicants have and you lack, maybe they are trying to avoid having you become bitter if you don't get the job. Ask them if there's something you can do to strengthen your CV.
