Ok, so I needed a 2nd job. Money’s tight, and I’m about to start college (No problem as soon as I get my scholarship check… about 17xx dollars after everything’s paid for. Need money now. Ok, so I go down to Burger King, thinking that I’ll apply, get hired due to my great McExperience. Whaddya know, in less than 24 hours, I’m hired. I started today. Now, the store manager tells me that I’ve been probably the best new hire she’s ever had. I had the registers down in less than 10 minutes, without a single mistake my whole shift. When I didn’t have orders, I was able to seamlessly glide over to the drive through and bag up stuff, etc. All normal stuff.
Now I have to quit in 2 weeks. Moving to college, etc. In my own defense, they didn’t ask me where I was going to college. Only cared that I had my HS diploma. The problem is that I get along with everyone really well already (Even the store manager! Success!) and I don’t know how to tell them I’m leaving in 11 days.
I still will have to give them my uniform, and there’ll be a check waiting for me after I leave (Mom’s gonna deposit it for me so I can take it out with an atm card)
Should I tell them now and risk them being mad at me and cutting my hours until then?
Or should I quit with no notice when I leave, thus making them mad at me for leaving and being a good employee, etc., when I hope to (maybe) come back for the breaks (summer and winter)? And if so, what should my excuse be and when should I give them my uniform? (I’m thinking the Friday before I leave, and saying that I couldn’t handle 2 jobs at once, without ever mentioning college)
