Music city record distributors - severence

managers expecting severence when your store closes; don't expect much. i worked managing stores for this company for 4.5 years. there were good times and at the end we had some very hard times. i worked hard averaging over 50 hours a week at the store. some weeks i put in over 60, and at least once i put in over 80 hours in one week. when i wasn't at the store i spent hours at home researching, worrying, and trying to think of ways to save the store. i didn't sleep much. my social life was nil. i was living to work, and working to live with the company. despite my efforts several outside forces chipped away at the sales and profitability of my location. the writing was on the wall. i knew the store couldn't survive much longer. i kept it going as long as i could. the store closed. bruce carlock, president, told me severance for managers was typically in the 2-4 week salary range. i was told by a former long time high level person with the company i would be lucky to get 4 weeks salary. there's several rules of thumb for calculating severence. the most conservative i saw online was 1 week salary for every year of service. i felt bruce was typically cheap, but fair. i expected to get that most conservative amount. ultimately i got half that. yes after pretty much giving over my life to this company for 4 1/2 years, mr. carlock deemed my severence should only be 2 weeks + 2 days salary. yeah, i guess i'm glad i at least got that much, but it still feels like a slap in the face. the company was good to me in some ways, but they always got the better end of the deal. i guess that's the way it goes. i just didn't think it had to end the way it did. i was respectful and professional. in return i feel like i got a big f.u. word to the wise......
