    Default Quitting interim job

    I have a question that Id like to get some feedback on.

    I plan to quit a job tomorrow where Im an interim coordinator after the positions were left vacant. I did this only to help the company out. I have ended up doing far more than what the original job description was supposed to be. To put it simply, I dont have the time or energy to commit to continue doing it.

    I have my othet regular full time position as a firefighter/medic, and with trainings and family I can no longer do my other job.

    Would you put a two weeks notice in? Im actually leaving for vacation friday and upon my return have no time for my interim job. I plan on leaving tomorrow at 2'oclock seeing as I have other things to do. What would you guys do?

    I've never understood the 2 weeks notice thing. So you want to quit and you must give them notice. But what if they no longer needed your services? They sure don't give YOU two weeks to line up another job.

    Anywho, I would give them two weeks notice. You never know, you may be able to use a reference from one of them some day and if so you want to be able to do that.

    See thats my issue.

    Upon returning from vacation, I literally don't have time to work my interim job. I have a number of trainings and regional meetings at my primary job that won't allow me time at my interim job.

    Two weeks noticei s purely a cultural thing. It is expected but not necessary.

    Well typically you want to give two weeks notice if you want to leave on good terms and want to use some people as references. In a lot of cases they just want the two weeks to be used tying up lose ends and catching someone up to speed.

    Only time I see companies saying do not bother showing up for the two weeks is if there all ready is bad blood between employee and employer
