So I got a job in November and I loved it... But the girl who sort of runs the show makes no secret of hating me and for whatever reason manage to convince the boss that if hours need docking, mine are the ones to dock. So basically last pay week I got no pay. This coming pay week I worked a whole 7.5 hours rather than my usual 28 while this girl has actually taken on extra shifts (mine!).
Anyway, I had a job interview and trade test today and half hour afterwards they rang to offer me a full time job! It's closer to home and I will only ever have to work one late night... Rather than at least 2 that I'm currently doing.
Anyway I'm so happy... But how do I quit my current job? I've always had a reason other than, "I was sick of getting messed around."
Do you think I should explain the other reasons for leaving or just mention the fact that this other job is full time and closer to home.
And what do I actually even say?
The owner is lovely but not really involved in the running of the place as she doesn't work in our industry. And she adores this other girl.
Anyway I need to do this... So what do I do? I will have to email as I won't see her anytime soon.

How to quit...?

I'm one to avoid conflict so I would just say that the job suits you better because it's full time and closer to home. Congrats on the new job

I would say due to the unreliable nature of your hours you needed to look for stability so you could support your family.
Short and sweet...try not to get dragged into any politics (even though this other girl sounds like a biatch)

You don't have to say the reason why you are leaving, but if you feel the need to you can say;
- The other position is closer to home.
- You need more secure hours and you need to be working more than one shift a week.
- Or you can say that you have been offered another job in a workplace that offers more opportunities for promotion.
Thank goodness you won't have to work with a mean girl anymore!!

Yeah I'd just keep it to the above reasons. As tempting as it is to list some of the other reasons I'd avoid burning any bridges
Congrats on the new job!

You dont even need to mention the other job. Just remember to say thanks for the opportunities they have provided you over the last 5 months and that you have enjoyed working there. Leave on good terms, dont mention anything about the other workers and when you leave you can hold your head high.

I would just say you have a family and you needed more hours. I agree with London, leave on good terms.

Whenever I've quit a job, I google resignation letter and pick one that sounds good lol it's easy to change a few details etc. then I just hand the letter to my manager, easy as!
Congrats on the new job!!

Sorry you've had to go through this - Ive had a similar work nightmare situation where I've been totally excluded by one girl in particular (thread with all my whinging on this forum!) and it's stressful, awful.
It's great you have found another suitable job. I agree with the others though, just stick to the generic 'I've been offered a permanent role close to home'
Good luck with it!

I quit my job a few years back due to a b*tch. On my resignation letter I didn't give a reason, and when asked by fellow co workers I said that I wanted a job closer to home.
on my last day the big boss sat me down and asked if there were other reasons, anything I said would be confidential and that he was really happy with my work so no matter what I said, I would get a glowing reference. Told him how horrid the office manager was, think he must have had an idea!
i wouldn't say anything other then thank you for the opportunity but you have found another job that better suits you and your family. No need to burn bridges
