Do people actually believe that not giving notice at a pizza job at 19 is going to affect your future ability to find work?

You don't need to use every job you have had as a reference. You can also explain to a future employer why you won't use them as a reference. If you have a legit excuse, most employers are reasonable.

When it comes to a resume for a job you consider a career I only put applicable work history. If it makes you feel better HR usually only calls for confirmation that you worked there on certain dates. Long story short; just don't come back to that job. No one has ever asked me why I quit showing up at a job when I was 18.

so many stupid people on here thinking employers won't look at references or will understand if you dont use them. My employer contacted all my references even ones I couldn't get the contact details for and lucky for me I take every job I have seriously so all had good things to say.

Every situation is different. If there is a legit reason to quit without notice, a new employer will understand. I have been there, done that. So down vote all you like, but every circumstance is different. I have written on applications that the may not contact a previous employer and have still gotten the job. Yes, it can affect future jobs, but not always.

The last job I worked at did NOT check. The manager hired me before I even completely filled out my application. But I've walked out of quite a few jobs without notice due to being treated poorly. If you don't respect me, I'm not going to respect you. I don't recommend it, surely, but it won't ruin your whole life, either.

#33 everyone checks. I don't hire anyone without checking every professional and personal reference in their application. You have zero idea what you're talking about and should never give advice again.

i beg to differ if someone is sexually harassed or threatened or in anyway feels unsafe they should leave without notice and report the business

Looks like you're in one saucy situation

This is such a great idea. I know I stress under situations like these, not just at work but even with family or when I was in school. Writing it out and going over what you want to say, even if it takes a dozen times before you start to feel comfortable, is the best way to approach the situation. And if you can't reach that point, like 6 said, you can walk in and just hand your boss the notice.

The best way to resign from a job is with is written notice, given to your manager, and HR, and an email sent as well. This way no one can dispute it.
