Give notice, it is the professional thing to do. If there is truely only a couple hours of work for you to do each day maybe they would offer to have you been done sooner. Sorry, but I think you need to suck it up.

You should give notice, never burn the bridge behind you just in case. You might get lucky and they might tell you no need to work the two weeks, that’s what we usually do with anyone who gives notice.

I would still give notice. All you need to say is that you’re giving your two weeks notice, that you’ve accepted a new position. There is no need to go into details about whyyou’re leaving. If they don’t want you there for 2 weeks, then they canTelly you just not to come back the next day. I’d stay for the two weeks to have a little extra $$. My philosophy is never to burn bridges. You never know when you might run into someone again! The manager you have now might interview you in 7 years at a different company… You just neve knowthese things!

Give notice. Just say “I have found an opprotunity that better suits my career goals” in a short but sweet resignation letter 🙂

Give notice! Your future employers will probably want to know all about what happened with your last jobs. Plus want to makes sure they have time to have someone fill your place 🙂

@SummerGirl21:  Aw I’m sorry, that’s a tough situation.  I once that a job that I hated for about 4 months.  I was too scared to give notice in person so I sent an email to my boss.  I also quit with no notice once, and I felt like a jerk.

Since then, I’ve had a lot of jobs, both good and bad, and I’ve given notice in person every time.  It gets easier with practice.  I think you will feel better about yourself if you tell them.  

You’re right, they might not want you to work the last 2 weeks.  Some employers will “walk you out” due to company policy.  I would see if your new employer can be flexible with your start date.

Good luck!

I would give notice. The only job I’ve left without notice is a place I worked for a week.

I second what someone else said about a short note saying you’ve found another place of employment that better suits your career goals and put your last date of employment.

Give notice – 100%.  I hated my last job that I was at for 2.5 years.  You still never want to burn bridges.

You never know when/where you may run in to these people in the future (possibly at a future company you’re pursuing).  People also talk so while you may not see them directly, you may interview with someone in the future who has heard from one of them that you quit without notice.
