Companies do not care about their employees. I know no one wants to hear this, but it is the truth. No matter how much you believe the people at your workplace are your family, this is rarely the case. because they will do whatever is best for them and the company and rarely care about their employees. The bottom line is that it all comes down to money and how much they can save. Even if you are qualified for a job and have been with the company for years, if they can get in a new hire for less money, they will choose that option.
I’m not sure if it was for financial reasons, but a veteran employee was passed over for promotion, and the position was instead given to a new hire. You might think this isn’t so bad, but they were also told to train the new employee, which is just rubbing salt in the wound. They would not have been told to train someone for that job if they were unqualified. Scroll down to read the entire story and what people had to say.
#1 This is a short story but it happens more than you would think.
I'm not surprised that this person is leaving. If I were in their shoes, I would do the same. It is one thing not to be promoted. After all, it may be painful, but you may simply not be qualified for the new position. However, the fact that they were told to train the new hire renders this observation false. So they were obviously qualified, but they didn't get the job. I'm curious why they didn't hire an internal employee.
#2 if they only had the foresight to not f**k someone over.
#3 Managers really do only care about themselves most of the time.
#4 How are they qualified to train the new employee?
#5 Finding a new job is possibly the only way tog et out of this mess.
#6 Did they not think this would insult their current employee?
#7 Sometimes the best way to earn more is to quit and find a new job.
#8 This comment sums up everything perfectly.
#9 Even if it was pointed out, they would ignore it wholeheartedly.
#10 They will walk over you if they do end up training the new hire.
