    You could complain to higher but in the real world a senior management isnt really going to listen to a new employer over one of the managers. All your other coworkers that will act like they will back you up will suddenly fall silent and leave you hanging big time. It isnt working just give notice and move on, most likely they will cut your hours to basically nothing , but that is ok, you gave them two weeks notice, if they fire you or tell you to leave that day, its there problem. You did the right thing. Look at what is best for you in the long run. Telling them off, or quitting and storming off will make you feel good for a few minutes, but they really wont care. And it could bite you in the butt down the road.
    Be professional , short and sweet. I intend to leave in 2 weeks. All you gotta do.

    I agree with Joe on this one, not following the chain of command is a no-no. Going to a higher up to complain about your immediate supervisor makes you look like a tattletale. And most likely the higher is not going to appreciate it either, there is a reason why they have that person(your supervisor) in that position. Best to cut your losses as soon as you find a new job. If your supervisor is bad then eventually the high turnover of employees will send a signal to the higher ups for a possible re-evaluation

    Yes, but think of it as good experience in dealing with very difficult coworkers/bosses. Quitting without notice will hurt YOU in the long run.
    Your manager sounds like a real nutcase. Did she really shove you out of the way? Sounds as if she has no self-control.
    Good luck.

Maybe the management has no idea that their workers are being harassed? Good luck, hope you find something else soon.
    Yes, the owner, who is married to the manager :/

    I just quit my day job here. I walked out and left the hotel un attended. After repeated attempts of trying to get my pay right (hours missing off pay period and oh look at that, that's a whole new pay scale...$4 less an hour) I showed up to work saw my pay check is $250 short... again, I called my boss and said "I am happy to work if you pay me, seeing you don't have an interest in paying me, I'm not willing to work". So now I have a nice employment standards on my side and I hope soon I get the $2000 owed to me back soon.

    Good bosses, I'll give notice. Average bosses I'll give notice. Want to be a complete dick....good luck, I'm not giving notice.

    ^^^ LOL!

    I agree, in the past I have had issues with bosses not paying on time, getting my paycheck a week late.

    If they don't have to remind me to come to work everyday, I shouldn't have to remind them to get my paycheck!

    I agree with the posts that say just to give your written notice, no explanation needed. I'm not sure I would wait until I have another job either. It depends on your financial situation. Staying at a job that is so stressful affects your everyday attitude and can damage your interviews at other jobs. If you must stay until you find a new job, be sure to take the time to breathe deeply before an interview and do not speak negatively about personality and management conflicts at the job you now have. If a prospective employer asks why you are leaving a job you just started, perhaps you could make some indication that it was your first job, you jumped the gun on accepting, and you were not clear enough of the expectations for the shifts and hours or something like that, but that you have learned and are now better prepared to work as part of a shift team from that experience. As well as having a better knowledge of accepting the correct job rather than one out of desperation.

    Dissing mgmt at an interview rarely garners you any points, so you must be careful. I did that exactly once at a job interview, but at that point I didn't care anymore and I wanted my new employer to know exactly what I expected from management. But this was after about 30 years in the workforce; much different situation.

    I will say that most every job is stressful so your next one may be also. Many times when I wanted to quit a job I stuck it out and built a good work reputation. I personnaly would stay at least a year for your resume and then it is proper to give a 2 weeks notice and you don't need to say why or leave on bad terms.

    WOW it's one thing to quit with out a notice but to walk out and leave it unattended seems beyond reasonable and irresponsible.
