Resignation letter sample f&b

A resignation letter sample f&b can be useful if you want to submit a formal resignation as a waiter/waitress, or any other related position when working for a restaurant/hotel.

When leaving your job it is important to write a resignation letter to let your employer know through your manager/boss with at least 2 weeks’ notice, so they can find a suitable replacement.

When possible, make sure to offer assistance in the transition process (i.e. training your replacement) but it can also happen you might need to quit with immediate effect on short notice.

Have a discussion with your manager about this.
