Management often gets a bad rap. It’s easy to point the finger at the person in charge and blame them for everything that is wrong. Unfortunately, this is often the case because the person at the head of a business or a government is the one calling a lot of the shots and distributing privilege, opportunity, and compensation in the way they see fit.
But this strategy only works for so long because eventually the oppressed people unify and rise up and overthrow those in charge, as was the case at a Circleville Sonic drive-through restaurant.
The restaurant location on 1415 South Court Street was abandoned after new management failed to respect the workers. The workers locked the doors and turned off the lights and left the location with only a hand-written message taped to the door.
The note is simple. It has the word “Warning” boldly written across the top.
Then it reads:
“Due to terrible management the whole store has quit. The company has been sold to people that don’t give a f*** about anyone but themselves. Sorry for the inconvenience, but our team refuses to work for a company that treats their employees like they are s*** when they have put everything into this store. We have worked too hard for too long. We are all off to better things. So to the new owners, f*** you!”
The message is signed: “Sincerely, Ex-Sonic Crew.”
Since the message was posted on the door, the Scioto Post has been working very hard to get a comment from the new owners. However, the new owners are seemingly embarrassed because they are not answering the news source’s questions or commenting at all.
Since the workers at the Circleville store quit all at once, another store in Lancaster experienced the same thing. This location posted a note to the restaurant with their thoughts about why they would no longer be working for them.
“We would just like to tell you cause you are the most trashiest company we have ever seen. To hide such information from your ‘team’ is unbelievably selfish and inconsiderate to the ‘people you care about.’ You guys pushed someone who has 11 years of Sonic under their belt for someone who has only been in the company for six months. She was loyal and would/did anything you (LANCE) asked of her. She gave 11 years of her blood, sweat, and tears into this company only to get nothing.”
The letter continues, “Why do you have 8 workers on the same shift, but only four people on your clock. You manipulate and try to come off to be this wonderful guy, but the more I get to know you, the more shady you appear to be. You knew the entire time that the company was getting sold, by the way, GMs, you’ll find this out tomorrow, threw Sherri under the bus to save your sass and practically lost her position. This is a joke. You’re a joke.”
What do you think about these employees bailing at their jobs at Sonic restaurants?
