Burger Kings entire staff resign, leaving sign outside saying We all quit

The entire staff of a Burger King restaurant handed in their resignations on the same day due to poor working conditions.

As they left, two of the employees at the burger joint in Lincoln, Nebraska, left a sign outside the restaurant that read: "We all quit. Sorry for the inconvenience."

The former employees say that a broken air conditioning unit had pushed temperatures in the kitchen to over 90F (32C) and franchise owners had failed to fix the problem.

Manager Rachael Flores told local news station KKTV11 that at one point she needed hospital treatment because she was suffering from dehydration.

After returning to work, Rachael handed in her notice. Eight of her staff resigned on the same day.

Once their two weeks’ notice was up they left their cheeky message to management on the restaurant’s sign.

"We wanted a big laugh to them, so the whole 'we all quit' was mainly to them," Rachael said. She added that they took turns updating the sign because "it’s actually kind of tiring putting the letters up there".

The sign was changed as Rachael and her colleagues started their final day’s shift at around 6am. Within a few hours, she got a call from the restaurant's boss ordering her to take it down.

"I told him I couldn’t do that because we were short-staffed and lunch was just starting," she said.

Shortly after that, a management representative appeared and demanded Rachael’s keys and security pass.

A few hours later the "We all quit" sign was replaced with one that read: "Now hiring. Flexible schedules."

Burger King later released a statement stressing that the problems countered by Rachael and her colleagues were not representative of the business as a whole.

"The work experience described at this location is not in line with our brand values," the statement read.

"Our franchisee is looking into this situation to ensure this doesn’t happen in the future."
