    Are you switching only for the money?

    In writing ...

    Most of the time I have done it in writing, except when the boss was an idiot. I would always let them know how they can improve as a boss without being too critical. The last time I did this it did make a difference in their operation. So at least it made things better for the techs that stayed there.

    Also it gives you a good chance to get everything off your chest that you wanted to say while you were in their employ, but never felt you could.

    The ideal way is through an exit interview, but that rarely happens. I find that a written document that covers all the bases is the next best thing. I always leave without any hard feelings on either side.

    Best of luck to you in your new company.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    whatever they offer do not accept.
    I would do verbal.
    I would have all my stuff out of the truck and make sure nothing is missing. Unless they took a inventory of your van when you hired on there is nothing that can take out of your check. Even if there was an inventory you would have had to sign something that says you were liable for lost or stolen tools.
    I STARTED WITH NOTHING, AND I STILL HAVE MOST OF IT!

    3$ an hour is 120 bucks before taxes. Hope the new place has plenty of work? Last hired first to go in slow times. Try not to burn bridges but expect the worst on Monday and hope for the best. Bosses seem to take an employee leaving personnel. Do verbal exit with written in hand just in case they tell you to go. Let them know that leaving is nothing personnel just trying to make life better for your family. Hope this helps and good luck at your new gig.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!
