    catering doesnt suck in general. but like any other job there are good companies that have their sh!t together and others that dont. FWIW i once had a job for over 3 years and the day i decided to put my notice in they literally told me to GTFO that day. good luck with your job hunt.

    Still, never burn bridges in this revolving door industry. It's the same people at different places later on in life. Today's dishwasher is tomorrow's Executive Chef.

    I'm facing a difficult dilemma myself. Good luck Chris, I hope you find something you enjoy.

    i completely agree.. its why he's done such a great thing to cater to them (no pun intended).. they might be calling him back soon, to which he can kindly decline, and still have a good relationship/reference

    Most employers don't want people who give notice of termination "hanging around" when their heart's not into it and their mind is elsewhere.Hopefully it's a business decision and not personal.

    I also think most employees are ready to leave the same day(or week) they give notice.They do it out of professional courtesy..or not wanting to burn any bridges,which is the right thing to do.
