How long should I wait before quitting my job?
I'm a college student with a long and busy schedule, but also have no money for anything. I'm planning on getting a job but I'm worried I won't have enough time to devote for it. It's a simple cashier job but I'm still worried that I won't be able to balance all my school work with a job. Would it be inappropriate to quit a job after about two weeks if I know it is not working out?

No it wouldn't. One or two weeks would be the perfect time to quit if you know it's not working out. Just explain the situationto your boss and I'm sure he'll understand. Whatever you do, do not mention the fact that you might quit within the first few weeks at your interview if you want to get the job.

Nope, just do it right, write a formal letter explaining that you cannot keep the job and always thank the company for the opportunity.

Maybe ur boss can work out a schedule so u could do both.

In all my years I've always found a week notice was appropriate for quitting a job. Unless you have a better job lined up and the person hiring you understands you wish to give a weeks notice unless it makes a difference in your getting the job or not. Most supervisors respect the weeks notice on both ends.
