Find the worst qualified people to interview, and then don't hire anyone. While you're doing this, look for a new job. What's your boss going to do? Fire you?

Am I the only one who thought the OP may be getting promoted and therefore need a replacement for his old job? Or his boss could just be a complete jerk...

Find the best person you can. This was used as a step to determine my eligibility for a promotion. Do it right, they wouldn't have you do something that could screw them

I agree that it sucks but at least you know what's going on and have some time to find another job. Possibly, your boss is about to give you a better/higher position and just wanted to mess with you while he/she still can?

when i read the FML i saw it in 2 ways. 1) the same way everyone else is ie. what a terrible boss or that sucks. and 2) you get a replacement cause you just got promoted. itd be nice if it were the 2nd one.

Honestly, I am uncertain of if the boss is really just being an ass or just trying something out. Frankly, I'd pull the same trick if I were the guy's boss, but only to check if the guy is qualified enough for a higher function. Yes, I know some bosses really are assholes and actually expect you to find a replacement for your own spot, but, please, do bear in mind that, if the poster's boss really wanted to replace him, he would do the interviews himself. I mean, if the poster does a crappy job how the hell would he be able to know the qualifications for his job and how the hell would he be able to pick the perfect employee for his own position?

could you imagine if he was up for promotion and took the advice of idiots like you? Would be pretty embarrassing when he got fired because he listened to people that were on the internet instead of doing his job and getting that promotion. Now, I am not saying that is what will happen, but neither of us should assume that he is getting fired or promoted or anything. It is a possibility and Nothing more, so keep your opinion to your self and wait for the OP to reply to his own comment.

and chance missing a promotion? The op didn't give enough info for anyone to assume he is being fired. What if he should get a promotion and you idiots told him to quit or find the worst replacement possible. He would definitely be screwed then. Just because you read it the way you want, and his boss PROBABLy didn't give him details past finding the replacement, doesn't mean it is what either of you assume.
