What is the best way to quit a job?

I've been working at ShopRite for mostly 3 months now, and I found a new job for being a counselor for a summer camp. But I'm trying to figure out how to quit my ShopRite job. I mean I should at least finish the hours left of this week. Any advice?

Speak to your manager. Let him know you have landed another opportunity, and that you will be leaving ShopRite. Ask him if he'd like you to work out a week or two weeks' notice. Good luck. - Stuart

either go in and then pull no-shows, but if u want to use them as ref's in the future, just tell them when your last day is and put int as many horus as you can before you have to quit.

With a lot of jobs, you have to give at least two weeks notice. Conditions of leaving should be set out in your contract. Write up a really quick letter letting them know that you no longer want the job, thank them for the opportunity and give it to your manager. They should advise you on when your final day is.

Providing two weeks' notice is standard practice. I would talk to your supervisor and ask if they would like a written resignation letter, and if they would like two weeks' notice. Let them tell you what they'd like... and be prepared to tell them what you would like (simply to complete this week's schedule, work for... More

Poop on the floor and spell out the words "I Quit" Or you could establish a booth outside of the store that says "ShopRiter"

You should be open about what you are going to do. Almost every employer appreciates honesty, so you should tell him you are planning to quit, otherwise he may not have enough time to fill your position.

Always give a notice, and always leave on a good note. You never know if the next job will work, out and its always nice to know you can come back, if you had to.

Walk right out the door, then call and say you had overwhelming anxiety about quitting.

Give 2 weeks notice so you can have a good reference later.

Tell your manager a lame excuse like "These hours aren't working for me anymore." Or simply, I quit.

Finish and leave with honor, so that you can use it for a reference for a future job

I haven't even heard of that company. In that case, take off all your clothes, throw a bag on your head, and run around with a tennis racket screaming "I'm a goofy goober yeah!"

I just said "I won't be working anymore, I quit" and walked away from job after 14 months. Don't sweat it, tell them what you think and leave, you don't owe them anything.

You should give 2 weeks notice but ask them if 1 week notice is okay. But when I quit my job I said "I need to give my two weeks notice" and then they just kinda let me off the hook. But if you just up and quit, you lose a good reference. It's good to leave a job with people happy... More

After you secure another position somewhere else then give a two week notice. If a two week notice cannot be given, give as much as you can.

I reccommend giving a 2 weeks notice. In other words, talk with the manager and explain to them you no longer would like to work for them and that your last day will be 2 weeks from that very day. It is rude to up and quit a job without at least 2 weeks notice. Good luck.

Then who will you be working for come fall and winter? Think man, think. Do you really want to quit this job. It could be a stepping stone to a management position,LOL
Answered By: scott9292003 - 6/16/2008
 
You must be honest with your job at every moment, so I would say just finish some work and then the next day you must quit by saying "Sir, I found a new job for being a counselor for summer camp. I would like to quit" to your boss (if he's rude then you could just quit without asking) Hope it helps.

Put in your two weeks notice and leave on good terms. That way, if you want to go back to that job after your summer camp job, they would at least consider rehiring you. If you just quit, they have to rearrange schedules to fill the spot you vacated, try to rehire quickly as not to put out any of the other employees... More

you should always give at least 2 weeks notice, and definitely finish working the hours they already have you scheduled for, so they don't have to worry about finding coverage for you. if you want to be very professional about it, you can give a letter of resignation, or just the letter of 2 weeks notice. if not, find...

Tell them now. Ideally, you should be able to give a two weeks notice when you quit any job and put it in writing. But tell them immediately and tell them what your last day of work will be. It will be better than just leaving them hanging.
