    I was wondering if it's a normal thing for a center manager to be at a center for 9 months to a year?
    I been here for 8 years now and every year we have a new center manager? Any thoughts?

    It's not abnormal.

    In my center we've had CMs for 5-6 years and then turn around and have one for a week. You never know.

    I thought 2 years for a Center manager was a normal rotation. Of course some will be shorter and some a bit longer.

    I don't believe so. I think we were going to talk about it over golf but that hasn't had a chance to happen.

    The time a center manager stays in one particular center depends on many factors. In the case where they are wanting to stay in a specific center it mostly depends on how much of a manipulate liar they are willing to be and how they can pull that off without getting caught.

    Or, in smaller centers, their level of incompetence.

    When I was working we had a new one about every 4 to 5 years. Since I've been retired they have had the same one that started about a month after I left. That ones been there going on 15 years now. I never realized I was the one who must have been making all the rest of them go insane.

    1 to 2 years seems to be about the average.

    We have very little center manager turnover in my center; in fact, if the previous one had kept his nose clean he would probably still be here.

    What's after a center manager? Is it district, division and then regional manager? In that order?

    It soooo funny that our center is like a "set up" for center manager's. All the on roads tend feel out what the center manager is like. If he/she doesn't have certain qualities or weak they will act stupid and give a run around.
    How often do you see your center manager do hourly work?
