A coworker there put his hands on me and the company did not do anything about it so I quit
I got in an argument over something stupid and I quit. It really was stupid too.
I just read a story about a flight attendant who quit his job after 20 years with JetBlue. He asked a man to sit down during landing and the guy told him to “F-off.” I guess that was the straw that broke the camel’s back, because he went to the intercom, cussed out the passenger, and quit. He ripped off his tie, took a beer, and hit the emergency exit button - and slid down the emergency slide!
I’m not sure it was wise, but what a way to go!
Actually leaving the company and the people i serviced
I resigned from my job with 3 sick and 1 personal holiday unused. That’s a total of 32 hours I was expecting to collect on my last paycheck according to my original manager but when I brought it up to HR they told me that has never been a separation of employment policy. I was counting on that money to pay bills until I could find another job. I would have taken that time off if I knew I wasn't going to get paid for it. Is there anything I can do to get paid for time that I’ve already earned?
I got my dream job offer. The only catch is it doesn't start until the beginning of April. The other issue is that my company is known for immediately cutting the benefits of anyone who says that they're leaving. I love my manager and want to give him as much time as possible to find replacement, but I also can't afford to lose benefits for the next month and a half. Is there any compromise?
I've been on my current job for less than two years. I am facing safety issues, hostile environments, harassment by employees, no professional boundaries, tons of work (up to 10 hours a day), and very low compensation. I have a Masters degree and over 5 years of experience. I spoke with my supervisor about the issues and her response was " this is the culture of the business". I informed her that I was looking for another job. She informed me that she will give me a reference. Should I resign or stay.
Two weeks notice is the norm, especially if do not wont burn a bridge. I seen it more often the employer will cut you loose after a week of your notice or maybe even the same day as you gave your notice. You need to do what's best for you and family. Bottom-line.
The company promised health insurance coverage. This was in consideration that I handled some chemicals that are known as hazardous to health. If the person doing the test is in frequent contact with those chemicals, they may cause injurious harm, physically and mentally. That health insurance coverage that management promised did not happened. So, I resigned.
