I've worked multiple part-time jobs for family owned businesses that had a strict rule against hiring you if you worked or planned to work another job (I don't even know if these questions are legal for them to ask). I've always liked working two part time jobs over one full time job. I never had to worry about getting fired or one of the businesses closing because I would still have another income. Plus, if I needed I could just ask the other job for full-time hours.

I've always been a good worker and never call in, and always pick up sick co-workers shifts. I've never been fired from a job either, but I still don't like the feeling of having my entire livelihood and income tied to one person. It's also way more stressful to have to find a new job if you only had one to start. Working two jobs also let's you take a longer time to hunt for a new second job instead of feeling pressured to take the first offer you get.

I know people who hate working two jobs and would rather work one job and get full-time benefits, but I also think working two jobs shouldn't always be thought of as a bad thing.

You don't have to worry about finding a cop. If you're in one of the 49 out of 50 US states that have at-will employment laws, you're free to just get up and walk out of your job any time you want.

Your employer could try calling the police to stop you, but they'd get laughed at and then ignored.

The expectation of two weeks notice to quit your job is simply a standard courtesy, and you have no obligation to provide it if you're not planning on asking them for anything in the future.

1573594268 t1_j09zy0a wrote

Yeah, I've had people quit without notice.

I'm just like "Okay, that didn't work out. Moving on ..."

If someone doesn't want to work for me then it's better for both of us to just move on.

Only once did another business call me about a former employee that I had a negative experience with. Said employee was fired for theft.

No idea why they listed us as a reference or how the new employer found out about the work history, but I just confirmed "Yes, XYZ worked for us."

AFAIK as an employer I can actually risk trouble if I say too much about a former employee, so I just follow the "If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything" rule.

The other employers get it. "No comment" means "don't hire". No specifics necessary...

No good business is petty enough to bother with such nonsense.

I'm sure some businesses are petty enough to go out of their way to harass former employees, but workers should endeavor to refrain from applying to said businesses whenever possible.

(Easier said than done, I know)

Sucks that you can't always tell at first if it's a shifty business or not when applying.

In Canada you are obligated b contract at most jobs to give 2 weeks notice, if you do not they can sue you for damages.

I'm not sure what the circumstances of that person are because I'm not OP. But if you are below 18, your employer can fire you for working another job. This is because there are laws restricting the hours an underage person can work (it varies from state to state). And since the employer is not going to coordinate the number of hours you work with your other employer, if they find out you have another job they'll just fire you instead.

I personally know many officers who work lucrative contracts with security companies are reserve officers in either one of those two cities, the assumption is that chief isn’t paying them and doesn’t have to worry about his payroll of city approval of his new police reserve staff, many suspect there is cash exchange for those favors between all those reserve officers and Police chiefs who hire them.
