What would you think?

What would you think if you had been with a company for a year and than someone had come in only worked on call and only two days a week who clearly states that they are only there for the benefits and that their real job is more important, gets offered a management position after only being there for 3 months?

  • That is wrong. Is she sleeping with the boss? Maybe she is a relative and you just don't know?

  • Wow. I'd be pissed. This happens at my husbands job all the time! They play favorites instead of giving promotions to the people who actually DESERVE the promotions! I'm sorry this happened to you!

  • Well that sucks, but it could be because maybe she has more experience in that field, or they see something in her (such as leadership skills) that they don't see in the other girl. Sometimes it could be something as superficial as "she looks more professional". Just some ideas...

  • i know it could be that she has more experience but i do to and i was by passed according to this girl i was hired for the position originally but never was told that and that i was not going to be put into it for a while and now they offer it to someone who rather work somewhere else and is only working there just to get the health benefits whiel the rest of us are there because we need the hours and the money

  • Did they offer her more hours? Maybe they are trying to convince her to work for them full time?

  • well with the position its more hours but it took them 9 months before they even gave the girl who had been there a year 40 hrs
