Ah, that moment you get to quit a job you hate!

What do I write in my resignation letter to them? And how long is the notice period?

Thanks

Simply state that you appreciate the time you spent working there, but that you are unable to continue working due to... (other committments, job etc)
I have no idea what the notice period would be, two weeks maybe?

Keep it respectful. Even though you may have hated it, if you ***** about them or act like a tit in your letter they won't like it and they wont' give you a reference in your future. Remember, don't burn your bridges.

Thank them for the employment and for the experience and perhaps speak briefly on what you may have learnt during your time there.

Then just wrap it up by saying that you wish them all well and that you are now looking to move on yadda yadda.

[Your address]
[Date]

Dear [Manager],

I am writing to inform you that I will be leaving my job as a [job title] at McDonalds [branch] on [date], due to [reason e.g. increasing academic commitments - you don't have to say why though].

I would like to thank you for the opportunity of working at McDonalds.

Yours sincerely,
[Name]

With regards to how long the notice period is, check your contract (the info may also be in any employee handbook you've been given). Make sure you check though, as notice periods can change depending on your job role and length of service.

Well it was very easy when I got the job, but that was almost 2 years ago.

Not hard! The only question they ask at the interview is "why do you want to work here?" and it's super easy to get an interview. It seems like a okay place to work.

Less than four weeks - Nil
Four weeks or more, but less than two years - Two weeks
Two years or more, but less than 12 years - One week for each year of continuous service
12 years and over - 12 weeks

From employee handbook.

Some staff are genuinally required to give 3 months notice to leave a Customer Assistant job?!? That's insane! That's a long notice period for a management position, which of course would include recruitment of a new manager and training, but for a job like this? Ridiculous!

Actually not necessarily. The people who've been in their job for 12/13 years are generally the most experienced and they need that twelve weeks to try and 'fill the hole' that's going to be left behind.

Generally, if someone's been in the company that long then they are going to be in a higher up position that's going to need filled. They're going to have to find someone new for that position, and quite often that person will need to go through a bit of training which takes time. For example, the shift running course lasts 10 weeks, and there's 3 in-store positions higher up than that. So no, not really unreasonable to expect someone who's been in the company for that amount of time to give 3 months notice, even if it is only in a place like McDonald's :rolleyes:
