Giving a notice sitiation...New job?



Here is my situation. I received a call from a potential new employer HR dept. They offered me a conditional offer for employment, and the official offer will come after the background/reference check and drug test comes back complete. She sent me the e-mail with the link to electronically authorize the reference/background check, and scheduled a drug test date (im doing it tuesday morning, due to monday is labor day).

She said that new orientation training will begin on Sept 23rd.

I've never given a notice to current employers until i receive and official offer and sign papers from the new company.

I know sometimes background/reference checks take time to complete, but if it does take a lil more time than expected, will this be a situation where I could give a 1 week notice instead of 2?

I want to give my current job a 2 weeks notice, b/c I have no personal issues with any of my co-workers and my supervisor. Morally, I dont want to leave them high and dry.

If i can, i will give them a 2 weeks notice. But for any reason I cant, will a 1 week notice be justifiable?

Since you don't have a confirmed offer of employment (pending checks), no reason you shouldn't wait to quit or give notice. Have you agreed to a start date with the new employer?

Don't give notice until you are cleared to start....

If you truly have an issue and need the 2 weeks, speak with their HR and let them know that you'd like your start date to be 2 weeks after you are cleared.

Any respectable employer will afford you that

This is good advice.

When you give your notice, your current employer may tell you to hit the road that day. But you should still plan for two weeks.
