Anonymous asked: Hey, I know you don't work for Starbucks anymore, but I could really use some advice. I'm a cafe lead at a Barnes and Noble, and I absolutely despise my job. My manager is the biggest cunt in the universe, I'm overworked and underpaid, and I'm basically treated like a dog. I really want to step down and go back to part time. Cause part timers can also work in the bookstore. Honestly the money isn't worth it and I have something else going on the side. What would you do?
Sounds to me like you’ve made up your mind already and are just looking for confirmation that you’ve made a good decision.
Go for it. If the loss of income isn’t important, just tell them that you’ve got a side project that needs some focus and while you still want to work there, you can no longer devote the energy to being a keyholder.
Understand that they may just fire you, so approach it accordingly. Best of luck.
