Today, I started training my replacement for my job. My replacement already makes more money per hour than I do. FML
I agree, your life sucks 20 377
You deserved it 1 515

MySonshine7 tells us more.

OP here. I'll start by saying I'm leaving tis job voluntarily. I'm moving to a new town, I'll actually be making more at my new job. I have no hard feelings towards my current company. They even offered to pay me more to get me to stay, but sadly they don't have a branch in the town I'm moving too. To be clear this is a manager position I worked up too and they decided to raise the starting pay of my job after they started looking for someone. Apparently they think if the pay is good enough they might get someone as close to how good I am. So I took that As a compliment, I don't plan on screwing the new girl over. I just find it funny they wait until they are losing me to finally listen to me about how my department is under appreciated. I do wish them all the best though, they are making some great strides to being better. Sorry for the long response!

Fuck them, prove your better with your new job, with higher pay

Teach your trainee that nothing in life is free, and demand a fee for your scholarly tutelage ...

That sucks a lot. Sorry.

Why do you even bother commenting this? Literally every FML you're the first comment, and all they say are "That sucks, sorry". If it's not something funny or clever and specific to the FML, why bother?

Happens all the time. I'm a Manager training a project person on a job I have 17 years experience doing (this is her first year). She makes over $5k more a year than I do.

Ask for a raise, if they don't give it to you, you should find a place were you are allowed to move up in your job.

isn't op being replaced though??

oh shit, your right my bad. I went full retard

Never go full retard.

There is nothing wrong with negotiating for a better comp package, and when you're hiring in is the best time to do it. While there's obviously no YDI in this for you for hiring in under different economic conditions, you can't really be mad that someone else took advantage of the current conditions to make the bet of the situation.

If you are being replaced, maybe figure out why? As for the replacement making more money, it didn't really matter. It's not your job anymore. Apparently.

They might be quitting, or got a promotion, or maternity leave. Just because they are being replaced, doesn't mean they don't know why.

Learn to go higher up!!

It's a flight school, you can only go So high up the chain when you're not a pilot.

ROTFLMAO! "Learn to go higher up!" immediately followed by the explanation that it's a flight school!!! Please tell me I'm not the only one that finds that hilarious!

Don't train them at all. Just fuck with them, and by the time you've trained them, they'll know nothing.

Makes sense OP. Good luck with your new town!

Your extremely kind! I'd be glad to have you working at my company if I had one lol! Keep it up!

You're honestly so sweet. Best of luck, OP!

It sounds to me like they knew how important your position/department was and just downplayed it to keep expenses, IE your pay, down. Best of luck with the new chapter in your life!

Its not uncommon for a company to offer an employee a raise AFTER they turn in a notice. Most of the people I know that have had this happen to them, it kind of pisses them off. Their thought is that if they can pay me more to keep me from quitting they could have been paying me more all along.
