‘Tired of upper management’: Staff at this Burger King resigned all at once

Lincoln, July 14

A Burger King outlet in Lincoln, Nebraska, is going viral, but for all the wrong reasons. The outlet became a topic of discussion among locals and internet users after the staff of the fast-food eatery said that they were “all” quitting. And the staff made sure that the news of them stepping down from their positions spread far and wide by announcing it on the giant store sign. A large signage outside the store read, “We all quit”, followed by, “Sorry for the inconvenience”. The image of the same soon went viral on social media with users sharing their two cents on what could have prompted such a move from the employees.

One of the photos of the store sign was shared on Facebook by Rachael Flores, who was one of the employees at the Burger King outlet. Sharing the image, she attributed the move to lack of effective measures by the “upper management”. Along with the image, Flores wrote, “One of the original photos. We quit cause upper management was a joke and had no care for me or my employees. I put in my 2 weeks and so did MANY other people. “

Flores spoke to news outlet ‘TODAY’ on the issue and said that as many as six employees had quit the outlet following months of “short staffing, managerial turnover and hectic work conditions”. Flores, who formerly worked as the general manager at the outlet was quoted as saying, “We had just got really tired of upper management and them not coming to help and not caring about the employees.”

From an argumentative boss to poor working conditions, the problems were many, she said. Sharing details, Flores explained, “It was pretty hectic. They were already short-staffed and the general manager was pretty loud and crazy, very argumentative.”

She further added, “In the beginning of the summer when it was extremely hot, it would be extremely hot in the kitchen because the AC wasn’t working and temperatures were reaching the mid-90s most days.”
