Only once.... I went back for my last paycheck.....

I've only been fired once and only quit three other jobs.... I gave notice.... Wouldn't bother to do it again unless they treated me pretty good.

All the times I've been laid off, except once, they gave me about zero notice....

If it bothers you, by all means give at least a week or two notice.

In the states that I have worked you need to give 48 hours notice to receive your last paycheck on your last day.

One caveat . . . If you give longer notice they might be inclined to pay you all the vacation time you have accrued rather than just what you have earned.

I've worked at some shifty places which tends to happen when you work manufacturing and warehousing jobs. People come and go from there like crazy. I've been fired more than a few times, walked off a few jobs as well and gave notice as well. I believe it's more about the place and how they treated you.

Did it done it, never heard anything about it and it hasn't affected my life in any way, but it might not turn out well to do it all the time.

I don't know, just a feeling.

I almost did, on my current job, but I calmed down, and now I'm searching for a new job. I'll give my notice and leave properly.

I remember it so well I got off my shift, and never went back. I didn't say a word, I didn't even put in a 2 weeks notice. The jerks never gave me any days anyway, I called to ask if I was working that weekend and they gave me time every two weeks or less. So that was fun.

Last year I quit my job at GAME (unofficially because just stopped going) but yet the manage called me up a few weeks ago asking me to work over Christmas so now i'm back!

I felt very guilty for not telling anyone so if you do want to I suggest a short phone call or email to your manager at the time

I used to work at a daycare and my boss was a b. She would always call me a b*tch and be like who you think you are if i was 5 minutes late. I understand the importance of being on time working at a daycare but she always gripped at me over every stupid thing. It was like back in school when you did something bad you get called to the principles office. After little over enough i had enough. She was hogging me in her schedule. I never had a set schedule i had to call in everyday or stop by the office everyday to see if i was working the next day and i usually was from 6 to 6 on an average. They were only closed weekends. One day i got called in and had enough so i just didnt go in. She kept calling my cell so i turned it off. I had a new job about 2 months later

If you gave your 2 week notice and its been 2 weeks, whats the problem? Simply tell your boss its been two weeks and your out. There's no shame in that since you literally gave them a notice.

Too often, to be honest. Fortunately, they were all entry level positions that didn't really matter.

Something that may be of interest to you, is that the vast majority of jobs are what is known as "employment-at-will". The principle of "employment-at-will" is that either party can terminate the employment at any time, without cause. Two weeks notice is merely a courtesy. Of course, leaving without notice puts your ex-employer in a tight spot, and is likely to A) result in burning a bridge, and no good reference from that employer.

If you signed a contract to work for a certain period of time, then you don't have the option of leaving at will.

Cuz my last job.. if u quit without notice they dock ur paycheck, so u kno... idk.


Do you live in America? Just wondering because that's actually illegal for an employer to do under Federal Labor Laws. If you're an hourly paid employee they can't dock your pay for the hours you've already worked, they have to pay you for them. If you're a salaried employee who's already been paid for your time, I can see them docking it for the time that you didn't work, but it's illegal to do for the hours worked for hourly pay. What kind of job was it?
