    You would have to talk to your boss, let them know you don't want to quit and you want to stay at your job.

    You can quit any time you want. If you're contracted to work the last two weeks of your notice then you have to work them.

    A lot better to do the 2 weeks.

    Not a good idea to burn bridges.

    Do the two weeks. Even if you don't like the job, it's common courtesy

    You don't have to do anything...ask the manager if they really need you for the two weeks, you don't want to screw over the business or your co-workers because you don't like the job. Even if you don't like your manager, remember your co-workers will actually pick up the slack.

    Giving 2 weeks notice IS quitting. You are supposed to give him that notice for finding your replacement. If you don't want to do the 2 weeks that you OWE him, ask him if he wants you to work the last 2 weeks. If he can do without you, he may let you go early. If he needs you, work those 2 last weeks. It won't kill you.

    You can quit on the spot, don't ever plan on getting a reference from them and the story may follow you.

    I would honor your commitment. Giving two weeks notice is a courtesy and showing respect for the employer. It will pay dividends in the future, trust me.

    That's your boss's choice. Unless you have vacation days to make up the two weeks.

      If you have vacation days a month into a job's probation period you would be insane to quit!
