Default 2 weeks notice?

I got a job offer while on vacation... Id like to give my notice when I get back which is a week away still ... but it sounds like the new company may want me to put my 2 weeks notice in monday..... Its good money, seems like the job Ive been looking for... plus Im am ready to move on.. but I dont want to burn bridges .. and Id still support them if they needed it...

I am ready to move on....

2 weeks of working time. I would let them know now, so they have the choice to accept it as 2 weeks or 3... Gives them a choice. Employeers like that shit. IMO

I've changed jobs enough to know that even when you give notice they still have an attitude towards you leaving... like you betrayed them... so fug 'em. Give only the time you need and move on.

Fantastic idea.

Get it in writing before you give notice to your employer, if they want you badly enough they'll wait for your current job to end.

I agree. Ever see an employer give two weeks notice before they fire anyone. Hell no so why give them 2 weeks before leaving.

When you get the info I would offer up the two week notice, chances are they probably will say today is your last day but why burn bridges.

I have heard of many people being told that they are done when they put their two weeks in, but I still think that is a respectful to put notice in. Where I work, if you bid into another department, you put your two weeks in but your boss reserves the right to hold you for up to 60 days in order to replace you.

The day you get the offer in writing, submit your two week notice in writing for 2 weeks out.... The ball is in your court now!

Always give the 2 day notice. I quit. Today.

Seriously though. If possible do the respectable thing. And yes they do not give notices when they fire/lay you off. Normally because there is a reason........

2 weeks is the right thing to do, but if you're going to get that money back it's tough decision.

I gave 1 day & 1/2 notice. I even interviewed my own replacement during the last day there.

I did find something interesting while on a website for HR representatives. Michigan is a "must pay" state - if you are eligible for vacation time as part of your compensation package you are entitled to be paid for accrued vacation pay upon your departure. I had 18 days that I didn't use when I left. I (and my new boss) thought I should see if I can collect on that.
Anyone out there actually get their vacation pay when leaving? I thought about putting in for 2-3 weeks of vacation time and start working for my new employer while "on vacation" and I think it would have worked since they kept telling me to take time off to "get myself healthy" since I had a back injury that was causing a lot of pain.
