Today, I was told by my manager to make sure the supervisor on shift does his job. Last month I was told I couldn't be a supervisor. Apparently I can supervise someone who earns more than I do though. FML

I like most people only have (if we are honest) one or two excellent ideas a year. This does not seem worthy to use one of them up on :)

@8 I laughed a little too hard.

@16 No, but only because I had just gone to the bathroom before reading that.

Or more likely they know OP would do a wonderful job and are afraid OP would request a pay raise so they hired a horrible supervisor thinking the supe they hired would never bother asking for more money than he/she makes now.

I feel Ya OP. This year, the hiring wage at my company has been increased. That means, I am training people who are making more money than me, also considering I have accumulated three years of annual raises. Working for people sucks.

Inquire as to why you can't be a supervisor. Is it because you don't work enough hours? Or have you not been with the company long enough? It may not be that he doesn't think you're qualified; it might just be that you don't meet the job description's minimums.

There's no such thing as strict minimums on time with the company or previous experience. If you're desirable enough, companies will pay reasonably to keep you. That being said, the manager could be too incompetent to realize this.
