I dont think you have anything to worry about. If you let HR know ahead of time then it should be find, your new manager may just be verifying that information with them.  Best of luck!

sweetpea8181:  Make sure you get it in writing from HR that those dates are approved leave ASAP.  You want it in writing so management doesn’t “forget” and then not let you take the time off.  Most companies are aware of these types of agreements so it’s usually not a problem but you want it in writing so you can take the time off and not worry about getting fired for taking unapproved leave.  I would call your HR contact and verify everything is okay.

sweetpea8181:  I would give your new manager 2 weeks from the date you sent the email before following up. She could be out of town or on vacation. If you don’t hear back in 2 weeks, then send a follow-up.

You did the right thing by clearing it with HR and emailing your manager. Two days may seem like a lot to you because you’re worried about it, but I’m sure your new manager just busy/away and will get back to you soon!

One week is a very reasonable amout of time to take off for your wedding 🙂

Don’t call yet. It’s only been 2 days. You said you got the offer letter, did you send the offer letter back yet signed? If not…don’t yet. Wait to hear back from HR if they are the ones that sent the letter. Keep your contact with one person, the one who sent it to you. I would wait now until they respond. It can be a few weeks.   Go ahead and listen to what the other company has to say and offer in the meantime. Offer letters are not guarantees. They can still rescind it. I just did the same thing and have them put it in writing as part of it.
