So I passed my pee test and background check and was given my official start date with my new company- the Monday after Thanksgiving. When I called my boss to let him know, he was adamant that I call up my new company and ask for another week to allow more time for my transition.
Ultimately, I'm not going to push back my start date, but at the same time I don't want to burn bridges. I offered whatever time commitment they needed for the transition, but that my start date wouldn't change.
Anybody have interesting job change stories?
