I Got A New Job And This Happen. Please Help!!! by lawman88(m): 2:45pm On Feb 12, 2020
I really need good advises from you guys. I got a new job this month and the salary is 87, 540.00. I was happy with the job until yesterday. I took over from a man who resigned from the job. When I was checking the cabinets in the office yesterday, I came across the appointment letter of the guy who resigned. His basic salary was N147, 600.00. I saw all his credentials. He has no experience before and he only had degree while I have master degree. I have a lot of qualifications and experiences he did not have.

I just got depressed and feel like i'm cheated and being used. I don't have the zeal to work again. The manager was happy when we negotiated the salary, I don't really know what was making him happy until now I realized. I feel like telling him to upgrade my salary or I resign, but the problem now is that I don't have alternative now.

Better be managing it since you don't have any alternative, maybe after some months you can ask for an increase. Also, you need to give them all your best before asking for the increase, maybe they reduced the man's salary that was why he resigned. Be contented with what you have sha wink Life can be funny sometimes.

Work for a month and give in your best and then you can then let him know that the work load is too much for you that you want to leave, I believe he will ask you if you need pay increase then you can start from 150k
Re: I Got A New Job And This Happen. Please Help!!! by IamD18: 2:57pm On Feb 12, 2020
You are simply greedy, ungrateful, and not appreciative for being offered a job.

Saying you got depressed because of another person's salary tells a lot about your kind.

Like wtf!!!.... If you hadn't seen what you saw, wouldn't you be working with a peace of mind with the already negotiated salary?

Stop thinking and getting restless because of what other people gain or gained, be contented and focus on your own gain.

if you have more experience than he does, you wouldn't take over a job he resigned from, your bargaining power shows the level of your exposure and experience, it also shows you have not earn what you are earning or about to earn in your present employment. better take the offer and do your job judiciosly they might consider you for pay rise

The guy resigned because he got a better opportunity. Be managing it till you get a better opportunity too.

You don't know if the guy got the job through connection.

How did you negotiate the price during interview?

Try to be your best at the job while trying to seek another. After three months, ask for a renegotiation and this time, ask for that which you want.

Truly, IGNORANCE is BLISS.

You were happy and dancing thanking your lucky stars for a new job, not knowing you were sold into slavery.


Salary is what you paid to forget your worth.


Why will a masters degree holder settle for less than 150k(this is supposed to be start up for BSc holder with certifications but it's a start) even in Naija. OP you were desperate and that was how you lost value.

It's best you reapply elsewhere, while managing what you accepted. Also try to contact the previous guy and find out more truths ooooo. He may be earning so much based on CONEXION.... I hope you understand now.


You can have all the degrees a thermometer has, if your connection is not strong... You will be paid almost minimum wage

The problem is that you don't even have time to go and apply for another work or attend interview. You have to work from Monday to Saturday from 7:30 - 5:00pm.
I even tried and asked about the salary payment here but I got low response them

Ok sir, be patient. Have you contacted the former worker.... To know how he did his own? Because the Happy Interviewer may be collecting 150k on your behalf and paying you less o. He may have used your ignorance to increase his own pay.

Shut the Bleep up, Everyone including you is going to feel the same way the OP felt after seeing who he replaced earned more than him and to make matter worse the person had just a bachelor degree and the pp has a master degree. The way you reacted to the op situation say's a lot about you

op I understand how you feel but it has happened, you need to develop a good salary negotiation tactics next time, that's the reason it's important before you go for an interview, you google up about the industry, the company, the company competitors and what the position you're being interviewed for earns in that industry
I advise you continue and perform your duties in the best way you can and after 2 to 3 months you request for a salary raise.
Best Wishes

Thanks bro. I feel I should resign because it's a kind of work that you don't have a single free day to even go out and submit CV. Working from Monday to Saturday

Re: I Got A New Job And This Happen. Please Help!!! by Acehart: 5:16am On Feb 14, 2020
An ungrateful heart is always a covetous heart. I think you should resign - you will never give your best. People would see your countenance everyday and know something is off. Your heart is not right. You do not only accuse your employer of deceit but you accuse God of being unmerciful. If you don’t resign, you will be sacked if your heart remains this way.

Bro, don't follow that advice.. Your problem is just imaginary! As much as unhappy you could be...
Don't ask for a raise...if it is contract based that the contract expires after a specified time and its renewable.. Wait til expiration of contract and determine to quit or you get the necessary raise and your terms of service agreed to, this is only possible after an impressive stay and expiration of contract and you must actually be ready to quit no be sere sere o.
If you ask for a raise too soon.. That will be giving you a bad image and might get you sacked when not ready and make your life more miserable... Best advice keep searching for another job for real.. If you get a better one.. Move!

MODIFIED
I am in a very similar shoes like you... The first person for the job requested for 200 naira, another requested for 85 naira and he was accepted and signed to commence. I surfaced.. I actually requested for 40 naira they called to say they can only pay 20 naira because I was being paid 10 naira were I was coming from.. I accepted 20 naira..before I realised.
Now my work load is like second to the oga patapata and yet my pay is not even close to his... All of my subordinates like 5 earn more than me by at least half more...
And yet they say sir to me thinking my pay is bigger some of them that know the secret of my pay (plus their immaturity) are rude (or maybe am thinking so).

It's a complex situation... Am keeping happy with my job tho while I hope for a better one
