He probably was, because isn't that something you would know about or at least suspect? If they nominated OP for a higher position I would think they'd let him know at the time, but even if they didn't, wouldn't there be some hints that OP was doing a great job and might be up for promotion?

True, most likely he is just mindfucking you to begin with. If you where seriously considered to be replacing someone within a month, don't you think they atleast would have contacted you to have a talk about it. And to prepare you? Otherwise it is a pretty terrible company to just put someone in a spot and know what to do without proper training.

My thoughts exactly #1! He's was just trying to make you regret leaving the company. You probably would have been notified by now if that were true.

I was trained to replace a network engineer at the office I work at who had given his heads up for a resignation. He makes 100+ dollars an hour. I will make 22 dollars an hour. You never make as much money as the more experienced.

#58 as a network engineer? You must be at the wrong company. I can't imagine someone paying that low unless you're a contractor and your agency sucks. You should negotiate more. They are shafting you big time, maybe you don't have enough experience for $100, but there is no way they should be giving you $22/hr. How is that fair, on avg network engineers make $68,000. Sorry for going on, but that upset me

Agreed. That does not mean you will get it. The same situation happened to me but my boss was still working long after I left.

Such is the way of life. Maybe you'll learn at your next job to ask/work toward a promotion if you need a pay raise instead of starting over at a totally new company. Hopefully your boss won't be a complete asshole. That was kind of important information he kept hidden there.
