I just started working as a server at a restaurant the 1st week of December. This job has a 90-day probation period for all new employees. I’m realizing that this job isn’t a fit for me and that I’d be so much happier if I left. I made up my mind and decided that I’m resigning today. I don’t need to wait until I find another job because I was only working there to have something to do during my day.
If I’m still under this 90-day probation period do I still need to give a 2-week notice? I was just planning on telling them that I’m finishing up this week that I’m scheduled. I’m extremely nervous and would love some advice!

Always give notice but be prepared for them to tell you that they no longer require you to work for them effective immediately. Giving notice is professional and should always be done unless you are leaving a job because of something abusive they are doing to you.

I would just give two weeks notice because it’s standard procedure, and you aren’t in a rush to leave. The difference is only 1 week, anyway.

I recommend you do give two weeks notice, but as a pp has said they may ask you to not to come back after today’s shift.
Even though you are just in this job for something to do during the day you should always be professional when ending any employment relationship. You never know when your situation will change and you may need a good reference.

Can you give one weeks notice? I know here, two weeks is only standard if it’s over 2 years of employment. One week is normal under that.
Definitely be prepared for them to say you can leave now.
