How do I quit my retail/foods job?

Im working in foods and started working in January, but for 2 days out of the whole month plus a training day but that doesnt count as a work day. For this month i have also worked a total of 2 days only out of the whole month and this month is ending tomorrow. Im thinking this is a pattern of only for for 2 days every month and this is my first job and im in my first year in college. I just cant sit and wait for them to call me and work even though i signed up for as part-time. The store isn't as busy because business is VERY SLOW and they only need around 1 or 2 workers to work the front. I am thinking of quiting even though i've worked for only 4 days for 2 months, i just cant wait anymore and college doesnt come cheap so i need to work to support my family and I. So how do i quit? Should I do a 2 weeks notice? What is that anyways? And how do i do that?This whole working thing is kind of new to me so i wouldnt know how to quit. And also should I look for another job before i quit? My bosses/Owners are really nice. This store is a family own and the wife is the one who takes charge in everything and the husband just does what his wife tells him to do and what not. They even promised me that they would give me more hours and even recommended me to find another job but business is still very slow so the only times they call me is when they really need me. They are really nice people and I dont want to quit in a mean/bad manner.

It's customary to give a few weeks' notice but in your situation I don't see the need. You seem to be employed in name only. Give the store a call and ask to speak to the manager; tell him/her that you need a job with more regular hours and you'll be quitting immediately. The manager can tell you if there's any... More

if you only work 2 days a month, go ahead and start looking for another job, or you can tell your boss that unless you get more hours (have an idea how many you need) you'll find another job. You may get fired, but you'll be fine, there's more food industry jobs that you can shake a stick at. If you don't want to get... More

At 2 days per month, why can't you keep this job and get another? That is a serious question. I wouldn't cut this loose until I had something else going that will be enough. Mandatory training time is payable time, by the way.
