What can I do if the employee I'm replacing refuses (in a discreet way) to turn over knowledge and instead gives it to my would be subordinate?
I have been recently promoted earlier this year to become a junior developer. Fast forward today, my senior is now resigning and our manager wants to promote me. A new hire tech support (who is eager to learn) will take my junior position.
For some weird reason, my senior started performing turn overs to my would be junior (the tech support). Whenever I ask him about turning over to me, he says that there is nothing else to teach despite the fact the I am mostly unaware of his duties because our manager gave us different roles. We never actually collaborated for years because he was focused on ERP maintenance, deployment and configuration while I was focused on intranet sites development and automation. Our projects never really crossed paths.
Our manager does not talk about it and he seems super complacent that everything will go well. He never talks about it and just proceed with small talks whenever he goes to our workstations.
Is this normal? I feel like quitting before the promotion comes because I do not want to become a senior officer that knows nothing about his tasks.
