My roommate had it worse than merely this. My roommate was required to train the guy who was promoted over him for a position that my roommate actually suggested be created.

I've had that one happen. Right now I am covering for a position at work and have a temporary pay raise. I applied for the position officially when they opened it up. So if they hire someone else into it, not only will I have to train the new person, but I will take a cut in pay back to my old salary to do it. Pretty much putting salt on the wounds.

I would say "since he's getting the promotion instead he doesn't need any training" and walk away.


Yep. Trained my current mini-boss.

Similar situation,we had a position called Crew Trainer. It was a Crew leader and trainer role below manager that was a promotion with a pay raise. I was just a regular crew person below that position and of course making less. Working with 4 of those Crew Trainers, the manager told me to train new person...... Wait you've got 4 "Crew Trainers" who are all being paid more for that position and you're telling the one person who isn't to do the training???
