@ToTheRiot:  If you feel you can do so without being rude, I would write an email explaining your decision. I know my family members who run a business would love to have the feedback.

@ToTheRiot:  WOAH! That really sounds like a terrible place to work in! I am glad you didn’t have to stay. 
I don’t think I would be brave enough to call or face them to say good-bye, but I do think it is the right thing to do 🙁

Even though, e-mail sounds OK, specially if you don’t want anything to do with them ever again LOL.

@ToTheRiot:  I would totally email them about why. Tell them exactly what causes you to not come back, politely – they probably will roll their eyes, but might treat someone else a little better, who knows.

Don’t feel bad about vanishing. My husband had a job working for people so horrible he felt nauseous every morning for the THREE days he worked there before he quit – and the best part was they tried to fire him while he was quitting as soon as they realized what he was saying… freaking people.

Wow, you don’t happen to be in Washington do you?  Because you basically just described the worst job I ever had.  I am so sorry you’re going through that.  Definitely get out now…I guarantee you it won’t get better.

Good luck!

Awww man, I remember your post about your interview! I’m sorry it ended up being such a shitty place.  At least you found out soon enough to escape relatively unscathed!

I wouldn’t go back either! Get out now before you’re sucked in. At least now you won’t have to put it on your resume or anything since it was one day, and they won’t be able to fire you since that would look bad on your part. Now you can just act like it never even happened!

@ToTheRiot:  I would take the day without pay as you basically paying for that experience of the company you don’t want to work for. I’ve never left a job after one day, but I did after about six weeks once. It was the worst job ever, under the table and everything, so I didn’t feel bad for not coming in for my sixth day of work in a row at 6 AM to work until 9 PM even though I was a minor still in high school. It’s actually kind of funny because my SO got a job at the same place years before we even met, and he actually did leave after one day! LOL They still remembered him three years later and couldn’t understand why he didn’t return.

@ToTheRiot:  Sorry about the sucky job! However kudos to you for knowing right away that this job wasn’t a good one. 

I get WHY you’d write an email, I actually think it’s more professional than a phone call. If I were you, I’d mention “this job doesn’t seem like a good fit for me and I’d be doing a disservice to both the company and myself if I continued my employment.” 

Best wishes for a kick a$$ job!
