    Hey I got an xmas temp job at argos I've been there now about 8weeks, however I'm thinking of leaving, I work on deliveryies and we don't find out what time were in till the day before, and we don't know what time we will finnish it just depends on how big the delievery is. Which no-one knows till the van turns up. I want to ask if its ok to leave an xmas job before xmas as were contracted till the 31st of septembeer. I no some people might say stick it out for the money but I have a fair bit saved up from previous employment. Thanks for any in-put.

    Yeh dude, you can leave whenever you want. You might not get a reference if you don't work your notice but there's nothing legally stopping you from leaving if you want to.

    As long as you stick to the terms of your contract, you can leave whenever. I left a Christmas temp job a few years back and just worked the 1 week notice I had to in my contract. No problems or ill-feeling. Not least because I lasted a lot longer than some of the others taken on at the same time. One guy did one shift and never came back lol!

    It depends on your contract. Some jobs only require a week, others two, a month or more.

    My Christmas temp job just required 1 week. Yours may require more/less.

    Retail positions often have a high turnover, so I don't think they will be particularly surprised if people resign after only a few months.
