How do I quit my fast food Job?

I am 17 and have been working at subway for a little over a year. They do not pay us enough by any means, the management are really petty, and I'm just sick of the job I general. I should have another job offer via family friend, but I don't know how I should go about quitting. They have write ups about me that I'm afraid they will try to use against me, what should I do?

they cant use any write ups against you if you want to leave. They may refuse to give you a reference, but if you have a job offer from a friend they might not require a reference anyway. If you want to quit, just write a letter or email to your manager stating that you are giving notice to leave and to confirm your final date (you might need to give a weeks notice, depending on what your contract says).

If you want to leave, find out how much notice you have to give (it should be in your contract). Then write and give them a letter, saying that you are giving in your notice and are leaving, you are giving X amount of notice, and your last day will be X day.
The only way they can use write ups about you is in a reference. Anything they write about you in a reference has to be true though (or they leave themselves wide open to trouble). Or they could refuse to give you a reference if a new employer asked for one. If you have a job via a family friend though, then you probably wont need a reference and will be fine.
