Leaving my job today. any advice? - April 26, 2006, 09:05 AM

so im leaving my job today because this is a go no where position in a failing company, and for what im making i could work part time, collect my GI bill, and go to school, which will benifit me far more.

but heres the catch, ive never left a job before on short notice, im not doing my 2 weeks, it would be torture. so how do i explain this to my boss without completely ripping apart whats wrong with this place and leaving a bad impression? im nervous as all hell.

Severence pay is for when you are laid off, not for rolling out on your company.

Took the words out of my mouth... That is the wise choice. Fuck it - let em know what's wrong with the place. Give em a little Half Baked - "Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you're cool, fuck you. I'm OUT!"

Delete everything off of your computer and have all of your belongings out before you say a word. It's unethical to leave on short notice, but if you're going to do it (and maybe they're unethical employers, I don't know, so I'm not passing judgement) be prepared for them to call security and escort you out of the building immediatly. It happened to my friend and evidently they had every right to do this (he consulted a lawyer to no avail). So, get your shit out of the building and be ready to leave that moment. Don't expect a paycheck or anything either - leave on payday. If they owe you money you might get it but it might be delayed severely, I'm not sure what kind of job you're leaving and how that would work at your place of work. It boils down to whether or not you think they'll be vindictive about the whole thing and try to punish you in every way they can. If you think that might be the case, don't leave until you know that you could never hear from them again and be fine (i.e. you've got your stuff, your money, etc.).

Leave a not asking if you can use them as a reference as well. That'll make things even better.

Just tell them that you need to pursue other opportunities, you don't mean to leave them in a lurch but you feel it would be disingenious to stay.

If you want temp work in D.C., call me.

You should always have about two months pay saved before leaving your job. But being that you are normal, you probably don't. I mean, really, who does that?

Leaving a job without giving two weeks is not the most professional thing to do, so just know that if you list this job on your resume, any future employer may contact them to verify employment and salary. While legally, your employer can't say anything negative about you, piss them off enough and they might not care.

When the time comes to leave, just walk away quietly and don't make any fuss.

AJ, you have contributed absolutely nothing to this thread, but atleast it was funny.

ECK - Like Desmo said - leave on a payday, get your crap out to vehicle before you do it, and expect to get escorted out. When you go to talk to them, apologize for putting them in this situation and tell them you wouldn't do it unless you thought it was absolutely necesary.
