There's no reason you can't be promoted while continuing to do some aspects of your present job. The rest of your current workload could be split among other staff members until a new employee can be brought on board.

I agree, #24. A lot of times bosses will try to keep you stagnant because they don't want to train someone else. But I'm sure they'd rather lose you to another position within the company (where they could still utilize your help when needed) than lose you altogether.

Sarcastic much? ^^ Its good to be indispensable, OP. I wouldn't threaten to quit unless I was positive that they wouldn't say, "Great! See ya later!" Sometimes that's what it takes though. If you're that good, they'll fight to keep you.

I agree with the sentiment but unfortunately I have found some managers do not want to lose an asset in one department or position without someone as good or better in the wings. It is quite unfortunate but the work world is often unfair. :(

Agreed. This happens more often than we can imagine. Either current employee is too good and can't get a replacement Or current employee is underpaid for the job they're doing and don't know about it (Replacement would cost more) Or people just don't want the job and it's hard to get replacement. In either case you have to convince your employer that you'll do the next job even better and you can train the new employee to do as good of a job as you. Remember. Businesses are evil. Most if not all of the time they only think of their benefit (no brainer). You can also find yourself a replacement and recommend it to HR. They will consider your recommendation.

if I were you I would just keep working harder and harder. maybe then you'll prove you can be moved up even higher, and with time I'm sure they could find somebody capable of doing your current job

Most new hires won't be able to do the job as good as the person they're replacing due to a lack of training. They get better with practice and time. With that kind of logic, they'll never find someone to replace you :(
