Walmart employee quits job through intercom announcement

BEHOLD The Ballsy Teen Who Quit His Job The Way You Always Dreamed

It's hard to imagine a more spectacular way of quitting your job - especially if you broadcast it over an entire megastore.

A resignation letter wasn't enough for 17-year-old Jackson Racicot, a (now former) employee at the Grande Prairie store in Alberta, Canada.

As of time of writing, the video posted on Facebook has notched almost 200,000 views, 2000 shares and a whole heap of comments.

"I'm sick of all the bull****, bogus writeups, and my job", said Racicot in the video, which ended with a profanity-laced rant that made clear his displeasure with the big box retailer.

"F**k management, f**k this job and f**k Walmart", he said before slamming down the phone.

He has received an outpouring of support from strangers around the world.

He goes on to call out his own manager, the Walmart policies to care about their employees that are never put into practice, cutting down of hours for full-time employees, and a bunch of other stuff that frankly sounds completely fair to be steamed over. You show a strong sense of ethics.

"They tell me how shitty it is at their fucking Walmart, " he said, "It's not just our fucking Walmart".

At the end, you can hear people clapping. "And then you posted it online so your next prospective boss can find it and decide whether he wants to hire someone that would do something like that". Racicot explained to Star Edmonton that a lot of other Walmart employees have since reached out to agree with his sentiments. "Don't think to throw them around".

He said he had since been contacted by a swarm of other past and present Walmart employees who shared similar stories.

"Attention all Walmart associates", he posted on December 12.

Racicot told the Edmonton Journal that he had another job lined up before announcing to everyone in the store that he was quitting. In a statement obtained by the Edmonton Journal, the company said they were looking into the incident and would address it internally.

"I have a plan but I need your help to go thru with it", he wrote. "Respect for all individuals including our associates and customers is a core value at Walmart", the statement read.
