If you have worked for an organization for some time (well, even for a day), it is essential to write a resignation letter before time to inform your employer about your intent to leave.

We agree that writing waitress resignation letters is not easy because you might have developed affinity with the place that you are working for and the prospect of leaving can make the situation quite sad. However, by writing a resignation letter, you give your employer a chance to look for someone in your place. If you leave without notice, you might loose the chance of re-employment or a good recommendation letter.


A waitress resignation letter contains the following information:

• Mentioning that the employee is leaving
• Providing a notice period, preferably according to the signed employee contract
• Offering to train replacement
• Asking for dues and job leaving documents to ensure smooth transition

Mr. Rupert Josh
Restaurant Manager
Captain Cook’s
651 First Street
Romney, WV 18362


Dear Mr. Josh:

Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from my position as Waitress for Captain Cook’s. Please note that March 25 will be my last working day.

By the end of April, I need to relocate to Ontario where my husband has been offered a new job that he cannot refuse and I must move with him.

During the previous 7 years that I have worked here, I have not only gained experience working in a restaurant environment but have also been given an opportunity to extend my friendship bank. All the people – that I have worked with – have been a great positive influence on my professional life for which I am eternally grateful.

Before I leave, I would like to train my replacement so that they customer flow at Captain Cook’s in not disturbed in any way. Please let me know if you have anyone in mind whom you would like me to train.

I would appreciate if you expedite my leaving documents and any accumulated dues to make this transition smooth. Thank you for providing me with this amazing opportunity.
