(Original post by heyAmy)
I work as a waitress at a fine dining restaurant and hate it.
No other reason, I just really dislike my job. The average hours I get in a week can range up to around 20 hours which is far too much for me I feel (I'm 16). It is very high pressure and I have been working there for two months and I just don't think the job suits me and I feel miserable about it. Also, shifts can go on to 3/4am at weekends and we work without breaks or food for what can go up to 10 hours which I'm pretty sure is illegal.
So, basically, yeah, I just want to quit.
My question is however, how?
How do I tell them? There was no notice written on any of the forms I signed so can I just leave them in the lurch? Ring them up and never go back?
Also, what is a reference? I hope to get another job not related to food or waitressing when I start college so will I desperately need it?
Answers to any of these questions would be helpful. Thanks!
