    So im quitting a crappy part time job i've been working. Simple mindless work for low pay. I'm giving them two weeks. Do i need to write a letter of resignation for a job like this?

    Two weeks notice is good enough.

    Not really. You can, but if it's a shitty part time job, you're just dressing it up.

    Offer your two weeks notice, and if they want a letter of resignation, they'll ask for it.

    I wouldn't even give your two weeks. I know you're trying to do the right thing but many times for part time jobs they will cut your hours back (if not all of them)

    I would, but that's just a matter of me considering it to be a job, not withstanding the position. I resigned from a position not too long ago and was probably the first person to ever actually give them a letter of resignation. They also kept me on staff for those two weeks whereas they normally cut people loose when they give notice.

    Writing a letter could help you end on good terms as they will be pleasantly surprised by it, which may help if you want a reference from them in the future.

    This is a good point.

    But in general, just being respectful and grateful for the opportunity to work there is all it takes. If you give your two weeks, don't be a dick about it. Go to your manager and thank him for having you, and let him know you'll be moving on. Don't burn the bridge. On two separate occasions when I was out of work, I was about to go back working at a local pizza shop because I was on good standing with the owners. If your back is against the wall, and you leave that bridge open, you may be able to avoid some hardships in the future.

    Do you have another job lined up? Either way, if you're going to leave, don't leave on a sour note... Never burn your bridges, because you never know....

    I would, you're tying up loose ends of last date of employment officially then so there's no confusion when you get your final pay.

    It is with sadness in my heart that I must leave the position of fry cook.

    But I leave knowing that the fries are in better shape now than they were 4 years ago. Not too salty, and never burnt.

    Godless BK!!

    I'm not so sure a LoR is necessary but at least be gracious when giving your notice. Could always use the reference.

    Don't burn the resume.

    Give them two weeks.

    It's what, 6 more shifts maybe?

    Yeah I'm definitely not leaving on bad terms. It was a shitty job but I really didn't mind it too much and really like all my co-workers.
