Would you put your two weeks notice in for a retail job where you barely get 8 hours of work a week? I just got offered a much better job with more hours yesterday and I'm going to fill out paperwork this morning. Then, I'm going to work a shift at the store and let my boss know I'm taking another job and quitting this one. How should I go about it?

I would still put in two weeks notice and still let your boss know, just because I like to leave on good terms with anyone

Agreed ^ It depends how long you've been there though, usually if you've been at a job for less than 3 months you don't need to give them notice

It's also nice to leave and be able to use them as a reference. Which you can't really do if you don't give a proper 2 week notice. And if you don't give a 2 week notice you'd be screwing over your co-workers more than your boss, because they'll be the ones having to cancel plans and pick up hours.

I would always put 2 weeks notice in. It's the respectful thing to do and if you want to use them as a reference it's a good idea. Taking a few minutes to do it isn't hard and I think it makes a big difference.

It's better to leave on good terms and put the two week notice in just incase you need your boss as a reference one day!

I would not mentioned anything until I got the other job for sure! I'm not a risk taker lol
