My manager left a few months ago while i just started working in the company for only 3 months. I was then given the opportunities and appointed by my director to learn all the jobs and duties of my manager in order to replace the position while they continue to search for a new candidate for the manager position. I have worked the manager position without any salary increase or given title for 3 months now. I was also given new tasks by my director other than the tasks that were previously handled by my previous manager. I also involved in the development of new plans and system by the company.
My company put up the job advertisement on different job websites for the manager position after my manager left. However, no one seemed to get the position. Until recently I realized that the advertisement was removed and replaced with a new supervisor position job advertisement.
I don't know what should I do? Should I apply for the new supervisor position? I just don't feel good when they placed me in a position that handles a manager/supervisor's jobs but at the same time, did not give me the benefits while searching for new candidate.
Talked to my director and got my problem solved. I appreciate all the advice given. I know some people were wondering why didn't I ask for extra compensation at the first place. I did not ask for extra compensation because I thought I would only need to help out for a short period of time as told by my director. And as time goes by, I started to like the job more and was thinking of taking the opportunities to learn new things. But after 3 months of working, my passion eventually disappears because I don't see the appreciation in the works I have done and I was also given more works. And yes, I did start to question why didn't I ask for extra compensation at the first place. But there's no point of doing that since it already happened and you can never reverse a time machine. You don't stay at the same place and question yourself, you go forward and learn to solve problems and hopefully learn from your mistakes. To all possible readers, please make sure to provide helpful advice as to how to solve the problem to someone who seeks for your help in the future because there's no point of blaming/questioning them for doing/not doing something. Instead of blaming/questioning, teach them. Thank you!
