It’s my very first job so I wanted to stay professional and put in a 2 week notice. There’s various reasons why I’m leaving, the people are unfriendly, drama crazy, dirty facility, and things were getting worse as the months went on.
I didn’t explain any of this to the manager. I want to leave on a positive note and just told him I’m getting into my dream career etc.
So the next day he told people I was leaving and was being loud about it for everyone to hear. And like I don’t feel appreciated at the job at all, but he ran around telling everyone I put in my 2 weeks. And it effected my anxiety, I don’t like being in the spotlight.
And I also don’t understand because during my 2 years at this job, normally when someone quit you don’t hear about them anymore. They’re just gone and people don’t mention them anymore.
Sometimes they’ll say “Oh yeah So and So quit yesterday.” But that’s mainly it.
And I feel uncomfortable that a lot of people know I’m leaving. Some of the toxic workers wanna put their nose in my business.
But yeah just wondering. I believe this isn’t normal tho. If someone decides to leave in 2 weeks, shouldn’t that information stay between you and the manager and possibly the supervisors only?
I planned on leaving peacefully without everyone knowing and questioning me.
In my opinion, it is common for the boss to tell others, but to not be so "flashy" about it. It sounds like he announced it in a very inappropriate way. To be more professional, if he were going to tell others, it should be in the context of telling other members of the staff that they might be short handed for a bit until the job is filled, etc.
Ok, I was wondering cause he even told people that’s not in my work area. They work in a different department but they all know too
