Hi. I've just accepted a job offer from Greggs, and I've yet to attend the induction. However, I've applied for a job for a Greggs that is much closer to me, in Bradford. Do you think my current manager will be mad at me that I've decided to apply for a Greggs that isn't a 2 hour journey instead? I don't know whether to tell her by phone or in person...
Argh! Can someone help?

You took a job at Greggs that was a 2 hour commute? What would lead to that decision?

It was the nearest job available for me, as I'm under 18 at the moment.

You should speak to your manager about a transfer before applying from scratch.

True, but it's just that I haven't even had my induction yet, so I don't know how she'd take it :\

Do your induction, be brilliant, then say the travel is proving impossible and ask for a transfer. You need to show your value first and then you'll have a far easier conversation.
