Unlucky OP.I know that's awful near the same thing happened me, maybe she just knew the boss or something around them lines because there is no was she could already be better at the job, hopefully you get the raise back again!
Not being rude, but try finding a different job. I know I wouldn't wanna work for someone I trained.
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.
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.
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 see what the big deal is and it sounds like your just being a bit of a piss baby mate.
