Resignation, why the please accept my resignation?...
« on: September 19, 2019, 08:11:16 PM »
Ok. So today, I had it with my work place. I have spent 11 years of my life working for the company, has always been considerate of the company and my coworkers well being knowing my actions can affect them, and even work my butt off filling multiple roles just to keep the damn company alive. Today, the manager actually had the gals to threaten me with a write up because I refused to obey his wrong instructions after talking back at him and contradicting him. At this moment, I don't feel like I can work with this incoherent bastard. All the people he hires usually has some kind of problems, usually never shows on time, or calls in w/no show, and sits around watching youtube. They don't show, he has to pick up the slacks and deals with angry callers. I understand he's got lots of stress and just got divorced not long ago too but to threaten me and claims he knows it all just pushed the wrong button. I'd put up with him long enough.

As of right now, I'm writing my resignation letter. My question is, why do I need to include this line, "Please accept my resignation..." in all likelihood that my employer will refuse to acknowledge it? Has this ever happened before where the employer refuses to accept an employee's resignation letter? If that happens what can I expect to do? I'd worked long enough to know that if my employer had someone just as capable, my employer would have replaced me long ago. But because they can't fill my shoes, they left me alone and don't even dare to fire me; Except for the manager. With my conflict with the manager, I believe it's best to avoid the bastard by handing my letter to some else up in the chain don't you folks think so?

I just gave notice too.  They gave me a new boss and a new role.  I got tired of it and I left.  Essentially, they were managing me out because the company lost 30% of their revenue.  So I did both of us a favor.  After my stocks vest, I may file for unemployment because I have a good cause.

How you word your statement is up to you. There's no standard, so long as you give the meaning that you are quitting.

You don't have to include "Please accept..."  You can just tell them you are resigning and will be leaving by such and such a date. Best if you give them two weeks to one month. Also, "Please accept..." further means they have to take it, regardless of whether they want to or not.

Employers have no choice if you are leaving. If they want to keep you, they'll offer a better deal to induce you to stay. But that's still up to you if you want to consider their deal or not. Otherwise, they'll just let you go.

cot dayam they updated my computer and all my older emails were lost.  My other coworker went out with a bang.  She wrote a manifesto that drills out her superiors.  She CC it to all and I mean all, global chains and branches of my company. 

Was gonna hook you up with her template and you'll be golden. 

She did it for the rest of us.  Now we are just chilling until retirement.  EZ money

Maybe you can use your knowledge for extra gains. Iíve done this a few times and gotten raises and promotions just because certain positions are vital to everyday success.  Iíve even volunteered to be laid off when they were looking for volunteers to be laid off and was denied. Not a better sign than that.  Guess I need to retire or quit lol

There isn't really a right or wrong way to state your resignation.

Just be mindful of burning any bridges. Especially if you're looking to use your previous employer as reference.

Otherwise give a date 2 weeks from your last date of employment.

Thanks guys. It isn't a difficult decision to make since I'd put up with the company long enough. I just hope that they'll honor my leaving and do not bother me once I'd left. I've seem them calling back former coworkers to comeback and explain their work to new comers. I find that ridiculous!

The link's advice is wrong. You don't have to include this third part: "and your best wishes for a smooth transition."

Include only what makes sense. That statement doesn't make sense. How will they operate on such wishes?

Overall, very good advice.  Negative feedback (telling the whole truth) is not something you should normally give.  The company had plenty of opportunities to obtain those gold nuggets and when you are leaving is not the right time.  Unless you absolutely care about your colleagues and you think your feedback is going to help the company move forward, don't  bother.  Most of the time, the company will take any negative feedback as sour grape.

this is interesting... the other day I was working and fixing something in a small storage room. in the next room was the office of a hr personnel and she was interviewing someone with a rather loud voice..haha he sounded very articulate and used a lot of big words..lols

and then i heard, something like ' i would like to leave my current job because i feel i have overstayed my welcome and have outgrowned the company"

I was thinking..whow ....i never thought of it that way...i mean I probably did, subconsciously, because i had always been a job hopper...hahah to me i have never really thought of staying put with one employer for more than 2-3 years..i don't think i would even be consider a job hopper, but i would think that most employers wants people who will stay for the long haul...and to think I actually feel bad every time i leave a job after only 2-3 years...lols maybe they were glad i left...lols

apparently, now i think of it...perhaps some employers actually only want to hire you for 2-3 years, and if you're not a core employee, or they just don't like you all that much...that's when they start sending you to the subtle signs that you have overstay your employment with them...it can get worse and hostile in some cases...lols

it's a sad world we lived in folks...this is why if your job is important to you, if you want to stay for the long haul...you're going have to kiss ass so hard to where your nose is all smash in, lols, or you climb the ladder and become one of the big guys...but of course, we have to understand, it's still a very white man's world.....

jobs are just like relaitonships. ..it can start off well, but go sour eventually..ju st keep looking until you find one you're truly happy with...

I will probably leave my current job in a few months as well...i know that eventually they will sense that i'm not fully committed and loyal, besides i don't ever kiss ass, and i know that's when things will start to go sour...so i'll leave before it gets to that point...haha
