Would you quit your job ASAP for a better one ?

Hi Guys,

If you have a job offer which pays you well from your current one with bonuses, has a great work environment would you quit ASAP ? or wait to get settled down in new one and then hand your resignation

Very selfish and childish way to quit. You will end up burning bridges and won't get a good reference from them.

Work hard while young so you can "enjoy your time" in early retirement.
NEVER burn a good bridge as they can be very useful later because in real life stuff happens and the best of plans sometimes don't go as. jmo.

Can you explain your situation in more detail? It is unclear.

From what I understood, you work somewhere that you like which has good benefits and you have a job offer for a higher pay. Why would you be working 2 jobs and what do vacations have to do with it?

If I were you, I would talk to the hr for the new job and simply find out what carries over/gets matched from your current job. Then hand in a 2 week notice and finish out those two weeks. You never know how things might play out in the future. You might come back to this current job or need a good reference.

I work at Canadian Tire as a Sales Associate and get paid minimum wage. There are no perks and as a 22 year old I personally hate it. I took a job offer at some other place which pays me $12/per hour small but great environment. So the question is obvious should I hand my resignation asap or wait till i get settled down and then hand my resignation

Oh ok, got it. If you hate it and have another offer on a table then why stay? Hand in your resignation asap.

I get what you're trying to do with vacations and all now. Take all the sick days/vacation and then start the new job. It's a risky move but you basically get double pay. I still wouldn't do it though.
