You quit by default when you just decide not to show up. At first, your coworkers and even your manager would worry about what has happened to you, but sooner, that would turn to anger. This is a very unprofessional thing to do, and is unfair to your colleagues and bosses. Quitting your job this way will damage your reputation, and it ruins your chances of being accepted by your employer again.
Obviously, this is like having one last fight with your boss before you call it quits. This may involve loud arguments with your boss — including name calling. Even when you feel like you have every reason to be mad at your boss and disrespect him, it is never reasonable to act like this before you quit your job. This kind of behavior only makes you look immature and unprofessional, and you can trust that your employer will never want to have you back.
There are those cases where an employee talks personally to their manager to say that they are leaving, and that is their last day at work. Although it seems professional of you to let your boss know about it by talking to him or her in person, not giving any notice is just as unprofessional as not saying anything at all. It is professional courtesy to give some kind of notice, generally two weeks before your last day in the company. It would also make you look professional if you offer any help in the transition process.
It is common for employers to give some kind of exit interview to their employees who have expressed their desire to quit their jobs. Such interviews are used by employers to know what causes their people to leave. In your case, you have to be careful when answering their questions. You may talk about the things you didn't like about your work or the company, but you should stay away from mentioning any names. To maintain your professionalism, use this interview to inform your employer of the things they can do to improve their workers' conditions — not to get other people fired.
Quitting a job is not always an easy process, and many of us just don't have the courage to be professional enough to go about it. Remember what really matters — your relationship with people and your reputation. You may consult a personal coach if you need to so you may avoid ruining your professional reputation and burning bridges with your employer.
