I'm being the devil's advocate here but it is possible that this girl is simply better than you now. Just because you trained her does not mean that she will always be less qualified than you.

Are you one of those pansy asses who gets offended by everything and has to make sure it's noted you aren't being rude?

that honestly sucks. I've had some problems like that also where a girl I was training was getting paid way more than me!

That's what I was thinking. I was promoted over long term employees early in my career. Mostly due to them not really being passionate or flexible enough for management. Lovely supportive people I must say.

Good point, though sometimes being promoted means you simply 'click' better with maangement and it is partially just whom they like better, over hard work. But it really varies!

This could be the case but it's not always. I had a similar thing happen, I worked for a company for 3 years and 2 of the people I trained got promoted. I was a harder worker and did multiple jobs, the only reason they got promoted is cause they knew someone in the company and got a free ride while I got screwed over. I quit after that.

Maybe OP is so good that they don't want to promote her and give the position to someone else.

I would tend to agree, having been promoted over long term employees as well, that it has to do with ability to perform more likely than not. All of the employees at my job were 5+ years into their positions when I became the supervisor. That isn't an easy position to be in.

It doesn't matter how long you've worked in a place, if your doing a shitty job, you're doing a shitty job and she might just be better at it than you and more dedicated. This can all be fixed by you trying harder and showing the company that you'd be good in a higher position and worth having in more. And so what if you trained her? It makes no difference. Your complaining just because someone who's been there a shorter time than you got a promotion that they probably earned?! I really don't s

Look for a new job...You might need to because of your hour cuts. Maybe you need to work on your skills in the field you are in.
