Alright, so I graduated with a bachelors degree in accounting last May. Ive been working at a small bookkeeping firm as an "intern" for the past year and two months. I'm also still taking classes in order to pursue the CPA (I need 150 credits for the certification). I mostly work part time, but working nearly full time right now due to the holiday break from school. I've been looking for a new job for about 6 months now in public accounting and just received an offer from a small CPA firm. The job starts in two weeks (Jan 9th), but on Tuesday I'm telling my current job that Friday is going to be my last day. I'm taking a week off and hanging out before I start in the public firm. Now here's where it gets weird / I dunno what to do. First, let me preface this by saying I only make $9 an hour and will now be making near 45K salary at my new job. I also work with all females, 15 in total. The owner is also female and has a history of going crazy when people give their two week notice. Ive heard from other employees who left that the owner and office manager take it personally and belittle them when they give their two week notice. Another intern was promoted to receptionist, she had a masters in accounting. After she realized the job sucked she asked for more challenging work she told me the owner told her that her degree doesn't mean shit here. Shits not rocket science, it's bookkeeping right? Anyways she left and got escorted out. I've seen 5 people give their two weeks and they always get hassled and end up getting let go anyways. What I'm basically asking is A. Is this normal? This is my first white collar job and I'd think it wouldn't be this weird when a part time intern leaves. B. Am I an asshole for only giving 4 days notice? After seeing all this weird shit I don't really feel like giving two weeks really matters. I'm thinking about recording this convo for laughs via my phone recorder when it happens.
