I work in a very depressing, hostile environment where no one takes resposibilty for what they do......?
I would like to leave my current job as an Brokerage account payable clerk. I would like to resign ( I am currently in search of another position). THis job is very depressing. It is hostile and no one at this job is happy! They have been through six receptionists since i've worked there and I have seen five people hired into this office and three people fired! (remember I have only been here six months). Everyone who makes a mistake gets yelled at by a member of mgmt in front of everyone! They do not hesitate to yell at anyone. This is not how mgmt is supposed to be. My boss is depressed and she always takes here frustrations out on me. I will not accept that this is how the workplace is supposed to be. Everyone I talk to says that their job is not like this.....I would like to resign. But before I do, I've only worked with this company for six months. So my two questions are 1) What would my reason be for leaving this company and I only been here for six months when I interview for another position and 2) Should I resign with a nast letter(I really want to tell them how I feel) or a professional letter?

I would line more job interviews and call in sick to go on these interviews. Then when I had another job lined up, I give them the professional letter.

Leave for a new opportunity. Never burn bridges. Realize you learned something, even if it was what not to do.

Definitely don't, leave, get fired. you have been there for 6 months so you will get unemployment. Also with this economy right now, just try to make it through the week until you get fired or find another job.

Life is to short to put up with that BS. But do quit with a two week notice. And do not tell anyone off. They are not worth the effort. That way you can use the company as a reference for future work. We all deserve a good working environment and for your own health and happiness its time to go.

Don't write a 'nasty' resignation letter, just tell the facts. Let them know how you feel. What to tell you prospective employer during your interview? Tell the truth! Tell them, in a non-complaining manner, what the environment was like. Good luck.
