Quote from sweet sunshine
for me it was 3 days. It was an extra job and I realized I didn't need the stress of working
in a more stressful environment than my
main job so I never picked up shifts there.
The shortest time I stayed at a job was six months. It was a nurse leadership role. Communication among leadership lacked respect for most of my six months. It was a toxic environment, which I tried unsuccessfully to improve for five months. When I moved onto the next job, I read a name on the employee list which reminds of your situation. I asked the scheduler about the nurse, hoping maybe her behavior was just a fluke, only to find out she was unprofessional with this company as well.
Sorry to hear the extra job you were hired for was more stressful than your current. Why did you take on the extra job? I would advise against not being responsive, even if you no longer plan to work at a company. I say this because when I left the job I was in only for six months and started a new job, I was part of the hiring process and the above story. Nursing is a small world. Let's say you applied for another side job. A hiring manager mentioned your name over dinner with a nurse friend who worked for the company you left, and the friend told the hiring manager all about how you started, quit after 3 days, and didn't pick up shifts. It would be seen as unprofessional and even with a fantastic resume, you won't get the job. Trust me, I've had to make that decision on several occasions for the safety of patients.
