I work for the same Fortune 500 company that Wolfdog does and I have to say I don't agree with this. I've found them to be a great company to work for. We usually always make our quarterly bonuses... we'll be getting the one from Q3 on Dec. 6th. All the employees in the entire corporation just last week got a raise that averaged over $1/hr company wide. Full time employees have pretty good, affordable healthcare, plenty of sick time, as well as vacation and personal time off. Part time employees even get vacation and personal time off, and an available health plan (although that one sucks). For over a year during the Covid BS, the employees were given a MONTHLY bonus of $300 just for showing up to work. If you need a day off for whatever reason, there is no problem getting it. And personally, I work M-F 6am-3pm (actually either Tue.-Fri or Mon-Thurs. as I'm only working part time right now by choice). I've worked for plenty of mom and pop type businesses over the years, but none have treated me as well as this "giant corporate suckhole" does.


You're lucky then. There are a few good corporate gigs. But for the most part they live up to the bad rep.

Corporate gigs are like any other. They tell you what they need you to do, you agree on the price to do it and at the end of the week, bi-week or month they settle and it starts all over again.

I enjoy the whole “I gave them 20 years of my life” without mentioning they settled the deal every week etc. lol

I have walked mid day when the boss showed his hind end and I have given 2 weeks.

Coming from a construction back ground and having worked for several companies each year I got to where I had no loyalty to any company.

Where Im At now I have been 16 years. If I get the job I'm hoping to get and my start date is after the first of the year I won't give notice. I will take my months vacation and try out the new job before I quit my old job. If I quit I won't be going back and it's a huge company. The sold us I lost my 30 and out retirement and pension multipliers. I'm just a number and know it. As long as it takes for them to hire and post job passions it will be a few months before I'm replaced and my spot will be filled with overtime tell then. This company hired a bunch of people then layed them off 2 weeks later. Many that had good jobs they quit just to be layed off. The company knew they were going to make cuts before they hired them. They didn't even get trained on one job or thought their probation before they were layed off. I feel no obligation to this company.

Now if it were a small company that takes care of its people I would give them all the time I could and as long of notice.

There is nothing wrong with a company telling you it's your last day when you give them a 2 week notice, providing they pay you for the 2 weeks. No one gets hurt in that scenario. Pushing you out the door with no pay when notice is given is asking for no notice from employees that leave in the future.

A lot of people seem to like the euphoria that comes from "sticking it to the man"... typically you just stick it to your coworkers who have to ramp up to fill the gap. Give notice, be professional, help with the transition.

If you have a position handling money or going to the competition you will most likely be sent home with the two weeks of pay.

Give a 2 week notice to your boss IMMEDIATELY AFTER you put a cake and a Sorry For Your Loss card in break room. The cake write something clever something like... The job was good, but cake is better. On the inside of the card write, I'm the loss for this place.

Best of luck to you wolfdog. Have you applied and gotten hired at one of those better paying places yet? Is there any chance you could work part time at the new place for awhile to make sure it's a job you'll like? What type of work are you going to? I think most of us know where you're working now. I'd give the 2 weeks as you'll probably be hired back if you ever want to go back.

There's a reason I'm asking those questions. I've left jobs I wished I hadn't in hindsight. I went to one and it was the worst job I ever had. I worked there a month total and gave my 2 weeks notice at 2 weeks when I found out it wasn't going to get better from the other workers that were there. I fulfilled my 2 week notice and was told by my supervisor I was the only one who ever did. She kept asking me to stay longer but I just hated it. The turnover rate was astronomical to me. I was the 20th person to come and go in a 5 month period so they averaged losing 1 a week.

The advantage you have is you're young. Just get into something eventually you want to do long term.

Pay attention. When you try to quit, hopefully they try to talk you out of it. If not, you will learn that you are replaceable.

I think you answered your own question.

First make dang sure you have another better job than the one you’re leaving.
Once that’s in place tell the new Boss you will put in your two week notice at present job and would like to start on such and such day, BUT if they let you go early, could you start early at the new job.
Once all that’s in place, turn in your tel week notice.
I’ve never had an issue leaving employment and feel pretty confident I could go back to any of them…not that I ever would, but I could, lol.
