In today’s Episode… it’s all about quitting.


Even in the best job, there will come a time when it makes sense to move on. Whether you’re leaving the worst job ever or the best one you’ve ever had, make sure you’re doing it right!


I know we say this a lot, but it’s worth repeating: hospitality is a small world and your reputation will absolutely get around. If you storm out in the middle of a shift, people will know and be less excited to hire you in the future. There’s nothing wrong with quitting – but do it right!

  • First of all, if there’s something your manager could fix that would prevent you from quitting, have a conversation with them! It could turn your bummer job into an awesome one.
  • Pay attention to the experiences of other coworkers who quit. How are they treated? Are they booted out the same day they quit? Plan accordingly!
  • If at all possible, give two weeks notice. If not possible, consider offering to work a few limited shifts over the next few weeks to lighten the load as they try to replace you.
  • Do it in person, but back it up with an email or written letter so it’s fully documented.
