I got in an argument over something stupid and I quit. It really was stupid too.

Quitting in a RAGE

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!

That's awesome! I wonder if someone recorded it and put it on YouTube. After that I would look for another career. One that doesn't involve the public. Hell, if I had a job to offer, I would hire him!

All he did was validate that job stress leads to career burn out. Any people oriented job like police, teacher, cashier, food service worker is going to catch up with you during thoes 20+ yrs. He'll get another job, but I think that it's not going to be dealing with the public.

Tricked Out of My PTO!!

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?

Companies have to pay you for that because you earned it. Go to your local unemployment office and let them file a claim against this company for lost wages. This is their job, it's what they do. Take your last check stub and the one before that. They can also pull your wages you have earned from this company by your social security number. The check stub would show how many sick days and PTO days were left. Also that they didn't pay you for them. The sooner the better.

Hello Samuel, to be honest I never heard of anyone getting paid for sick days... only annual leave....But then again you can make another world out of what I don't know... Good luck wish you well

I Quit!!!

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?

Can you do COBRA? I believe that if you pay for benefits, you are also allowed to keep them under COBRA, but you may be paying a bit more. I would look into it right away, and then make sure you give the two weeks with a proper letter of resignation. People are right, you don't want to burn your bridges, regardless of not wanting to lose benefits. That can be very detrimental in the long run.

Resign or Stay

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.

It really depends on what your job is, and whether you are unhappy at this job. Look at things such as does the job challenge you to become more? Does it give you a chance to move ahead and create an impassioned feeling that you are reaching for the stars? You don't want to get stuck in a mud hole, but you don't have a lot of choices when most companies are hiring as many young, 18- 21 years old, so they don't get stuck with workers who are in the middle of their careers. Young people are not, for the most part, wanting to settle down. I, personally have 8 yrs. in a college background, but with the new generation, I haven't much of a chance to find a job worthy of my skills. And with most of my managers being half my age, below 25, be sure the job you leave doesn't leave you cleaning cattle stalls.

Daura, Take the reference and start looking for something better. Remember that trying to find a new job when you already have a job is better. Get motivated and make time to get out of there ASAP!

Two weeks notice

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.

Accident at #HydroLogic

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.
