- Wedding: June 2011
Hey Bees! This is such a weird thing for me. I’ve never had to quit a job, so I don’t know how to best go about resigning.
I started working at a bridal salon in December. I *love* my job, and other than a few issues with corporate and the way we run things, I have very little complaints overall. I like my co-workers and I love working with my brides to help them find what they need.
However, the job is part-time only, and there is no way they’ll ever move any of us up to full time. It just won’t happen. And even if they would, I don’t know if I could handle it long term- it’s a physically demanding job! I’m currently working about 30-35 hours a week and I’m always exhausted.
The job I applied for should be for full time, with benefits, paid sick/vacation days… all the good stuff. It’s also over double what I’m making now, and I would be working for the jewelry store where I purchased my own wedding set and my husband’s ring- so I can say I’m a customer and stand behind their product, company, and policies.
I’ll know for sure early next week if I got it, but at the end of my second interview the manager told me they are planning to make me an offer so long as my background check and references come back ok. (which they will)
So, here’s the dilemma: I know I need to put in my two weeks and write a resignation letter. But, how much information do I give my current boss?
Everything I’m reading says to give as little information as possible, basically. In this situation, wouldn’t it be better to give a good justification for leaving so soon? I mean, I’ve only been there 3 months.
We also don’t have an HR department. I would be giving a resignation directly to my store manager- who I see all week and talk to all the time. And who will probably ask questions.
So, I could use some advice on how to go about it. Any stories on how you resigned would be helpful.
