GRANDE PRAIRIE, Canada (CIRCA via STORYFUL) – This fine Canadian gentleman quit his job in the most legendary fashion when he announced his departure over the store’s speaker system.
Jackson Racicot shared a video of his Dec. 6 rant on Facebook in which he is seen alerting the store to how badly he says he's been treated by management.
“I also ran out a fire door,” he added to his post.
Racicot claims his benefits were that of a part-time employee despite doing full-time work and his manager called him “a waste of time.”
According to the Edmonton Journal, Racicot had already lined up a new job before launching into his rant.
When Racicot finished giving his notice, cheers could be heard in the store. As of writing, the post has over 1,500 shares and over 140,000 views on Facebook.
Walmart responded to the rant in a release last week, saying: “We are aware of the video circulating online and are disappointed by this incident. Respect for all individuals including our associates and customers is a core value at Walmart. We are looking into this matter and will address it internally as required.”
Someone once said any publicity is good, but they may be wrong. Can you imagine what shoppers were thinking as this came over the store's system. See it all go down in the video. Plus I linked the perfect song for this story. Enjoy!
