I would explain to them why you’re quitting your job.  Shouldn’t look bad on your part after the explanation.

If you cant get hours changed and you need to quit…Maybe you could consider it ilke a “summer” job on your resume, so it makes sense why you stopped when classes resumed?

Three months isn’t that long to have to explain why you weren’t working

I had to leave a job when I was in school in order to focus on my studies.  I actually did this twice, at two different corporate restaurants.  Once was when I worked at a restaurant all summer, and the second time I had been at the restaurant from March-January but my Spring semester I was taking my last 6 classes and was trying to pull my GPA up before graduation.  Both times, I was unable to get the schedule I needed to be able to focus on school as much as I could, and I “did the right thing” and gave 2 weeks notice.  And with both restaurants, I attempted to come back and work after the semester was over, and they wouldn’t take me back–so much for being a good employee, staying on good terms, and putting in my 2 weeks notice.

Anyways, when I was able to focus on school and not worry about working, I managed to graduate with high honors and my GPA helped me land a really good job.  Trust me, your future career is worth so much more than a cashier job at some place where they won’t even give you the schedule you need.

Honestly, I’d leave it off my resume.  🙂 

Good luck in school!
