Is it common for some firms to ask for more than 2 weeks notice before leaving? I’d like to have at least a week between leaving and starting my new job

Look at your offer for any rules. Outside of that, it’s just up to you to decide when you leave.

Would they give you a greater than 2 week notice if they fired you?

Fair point but I’d like to leave on a good note specifically with one manager since I’d like to have some notable references

2 weeks is a reasonable notice period. If you are asked to stay longer, you can let the manager know you already have the start date set for the Monday after.

In the meantime, actually schedule your start day a week later as you planned and enjoy the week off.

Thanks AVP!
