You might think that it is perfectly alright to up and leave from waitress job, without providing notice but it is the most unprofessional thing that you can do. If you have worked for a hospitality organization for some time (well, even for a day), it is only courteous 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; you develop an 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 are actually doing your “soon to be ex-employer” a favor. You are giving him or her a chance to look for someone in your place and train him for her. If you leave without notice, you are not being too nice!

So what can you write in a resignation letter? The truth of course! You cannot really turn situations around to suit you when writing resignation letters. Everything you write in a letter of this type has to be truthful. A resignation letter has to have the following components:

• 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 the position of a waitress at Captain Cook’s. I have taken this decision after much thought – while not an easy decision, I am afraid I had no choice. Please note that September 23 will be my last working day.

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

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 me for which I am eternally grateful.

I would appreciate it if you would expedite my leaving documents and any accumulated dues to make this transition easy. Thank you for providing me with this amazing opportunity. I wish you and your staff members best of luck for all future endeavors.
