A young employee of Little Caesar’s pizza in Atlanta learned a hard lesson recently after being fired for something posted on online.
The youngster felt compelled to post an image of a disgruntled customer on Instagram, and when the customer returned moments later to complain to management… that was all she wrote!
“I’m looking and like wait a minute. I’m on Instagram,” Duncan said after seeing the picture of herself in a Little Caesars pizza store Saturday.
“I’m looking, and I say, ‘I just left this place.'”
Duncan told Channel 2 Action News that it was an employee who took the photo and posted it on Instagram with vulgar comments about her.
We tried to give her a pizza that was already ready, and she talking about, ‘I want a fresh one.’
Duncan says she went to the location in Riverdale, Georgia and was forced to wait almost 30 minutes for her oder. When she complained, the store tried to give her a pizza someone had took out and brought back in. She explains:
“I told them I don’t want the pizza, and they say, ‘Well you [going to] be waiting even longer, I’m trying to hook you up.'”
She subsequently got a fresh pizza and went home. Her daughter later showed her the offensive post and she returned to the store to confront the manager.
So I came back here to figure out why would somebody post me on Instagram.
Duncan says the manager was rude when she complained about the post so she took it a step further and spoke with Channel 2 Action News. When Duncan and the reporter went to the store, another manager (who was not involved) apologized for the incident and said the employee AND the manager involved in the incident have been fired.
An upper level manager at Little Caesars told WSB-TV that the employee who posted the comment on social media is 16, and the manager was terminated because he should have been aware she was on her phone and posting pictures, which violates policy.
Meanwhile, the store is giving Duncan 10 free pizzas for her troubles.
