At work I was asked by a manager if it was okay if someone else can get temporary promotion due to a work colleague going on extended leave. My temporary promotion will occur “later at the end of the year”.
There were talks with the manager that there was a possibility for me to get promoted a few times last year if I worked well and I waited patiently…I have worked hard despite staff shortages and am disappointed that I would need to wait more months to get promoted….so I am kind of at lost for words. I know my manager favours this person and there is a likelihood that I will never see this promotion.
I did ask if there was a reason the person could have temporary promotion first rather than me since the manager said I was equally suitable for promotion. I was told that it was a management decision.
I would like to ask for some advice….I don’t feel motivated to work…do I suck it up and hope for promotion again or take leave and find another job?
I am disappointed :( since I have been in this role for two years and nearing three years. My role is not challenging anymore and I am not learning new skills….
TLDR: manager promises multiple times for promotion and promotion does not occur….was asked by the same manager if it is okay to let someone else have the promotion and for me to have it at end of the year
