Two weeks after I started a new job, I had a talk with the big boss of our division. I took him up on his invitation to report anything to him that needed changing. So I told him of the dirty tricks our low-life department manager was pulling on me and on everyone else to some extent. After talking to a few other people in our department, he sent that manager packing, immediately. Another guy who we all liked was given the job and it was a happy day for everyone------even for the guy who was fired, because he immediately got another job, that paid twice as much.

I had this happen. But he was fired. He was fired unfairly. I had known him for about a year before taking the new position with the company. He acted as a mentor to me. When he left I was thrown to the sharks.

I would think, "good for them." There's nothing wrong with a person seeking better opportunities.

Surely you don't think that the present company is the end all, be all.

It would definitely make me question whether or not I would have been hired without that manager, and I'd be wondering why the manager would be leaving that suddenly when onboarding new staff.

I less than a month your manager has not built enough of a relationship with you for you to take it personally. He didn't quite ON YOU. He quit. Managers are people just like you, who have lives and who just like anyone else might be looking for new or better opportunities in life. Yours just happened to make his or her transition to a new phase when you were new. His or her new job is not about you.

Feel? I'd feel the desire to ask the manager for honest insight and advice. About the job I have. About the organization I just joined. About the field in general. About what may have created the new opportunity for the manager. Mentors are everywhere, if you ask.

Right, that's what happened in my case. The key is to ensure the new people get adequate training, and the transition is smooth. Mine only gave a week notice and seems to have left these little land mines everywhere.

I once was getting lunch at a McDonald's and the manager got mad and walked out on all the employees leaving them all with no manager. The employees were unsure of what to do next.
