My wifes store manager confided in her that she is leaving her job and putting in her 2 weeks notice as at the end of the next month. Will the DM let her work her 2 weeks out or will he just pay her out and kick her to the curb. Just want to know because she promissed to give my wife a really good review before she leaves. anyone know how they handel a store manager quitiing.

Depends on DM,usually after a store manager gives notice(except retirement),they want them gone ASAP since most likely they wont care anymore.

I agree with xvef. The higher up you go the more likely it is that you will not serve out the full two weeks. The company views it as too much of a risk of that person "playing shannigans" and also of "hiding their tracks" if they've been doing some wrong things at their store. If the SM is still there after a couple of days of giving her 2 week's notice I'd be shocked.

Not TRUE! 80% of people that make SMGR have good work ethic, only if it's an LP issue will they be asked to leave right away.

It has nothing to do with anyone's work ethic. Every employee (top to bottom) at store level is considered a thief until proven otherwise. SM's have access to "important" information and when they give their notice it is assumed that their thiefyness will automatically come out and they will take advantage of the W. Plain and simple! Just to cover this ahead of time ~ theifyness is NOT a word but it sounded proper for the situation! Ours didn't leave due to a LP issue and his door codes, etc. were changed overnight.

Why not just use the word thievery? And are you saying they hire guilty people until they prove their innocent?

Worked out a 4 week notice when I left. Guess it depends on how much a dm actually trusts the manager.

I have never seen any store managers forced out early in my city, we must have a lot of good apples.

All District staff and Managers who give notice are required to hand over the keys and leave. They pay u your 2wks but tell u to get the hell out.

That's an Urban Legend, that is an incorrect statement above. If the individual violates company policy that's another story.

i gave my two weeks in written form and much to my chagrin, they accepted. i actually had to tell my dm, because he wanted me to stay longer, i have another job so i had to be out by a certain date. they were all blown away by me walking. from what i hear its still big news they are still blowing up my cell and asking around because they are dying to know where i am going. if they are caught off guard like mine and they have no options they will expect you to work it out. let me just say that i was just killing time and only worked half days, but they owed me that for five years of bustin my hump. and i did leave a five page list on my last day to guide them. but my dm was desperate and right now they have no plans to replace me, from what i hear they just have my old cl stopping by to give guidance. any questions folks, fire away.

If the mgr gives 2 weeks notice and they don't let her work it out then she should call corporate to collect her paycheck. We had an mgt give two weeks notice in our district and instead of having him finish his two weeks they just let him go ahead and leave. He agreed, but went straight home and called employee relations. They made the DM pay him the full two weeks. Apparently since he had given two weeks notice he was owed the pay legally.

same here --- unless the SM was going into retirement I've never seen (in my 16 years) a SM even finish out a couple of days on their "2 week notice" before they were replaced.
