‘What’s the fastest you’ve seen a new co-worker get fired?’ – 21 jaw-dropping dismissals


‘I hired a guy to work for me as quality inspector for merchandise headed to Walmart & Target. He bragged about everything he stole from his last job during training and how they paid him more than I did. Well, I’m not holding him back from all that money so I had some big guys escort him off the property.’


‘Guy had been working a few days at a barn. Decided to smoke right by bales of hay. Manager saw him and fired him right on the spot. At farms, you don’t fuck around with fire.’


‘During their onboarding training, they stole my bosses wallet on camera … 1 hour in.’


‘This is the opposite route here but I found it amusing. My boss was out of town and I managed a tea shop near a Starbucks years ago. This kid came in (foreign) and said he was supposed to start today.

‘We were hiring and I trained him etc. My boss came back two days later and had no idea. The kid was in the wrong place but he stayed with us. Hired on the spot without even applying.’


‘New guy drove a forklift into a fire hydrant, in front of a safety rep for the company. His supervisor was called over, and he immediately tells the supervisor that he won’t pass a piss test, as he used his only bottle of clean piss earlier that day when he hired in.

‘Everybody standing there immediately burst into laughter, which continued as security (also laughing) escorted him off site. Even the supervisor was all smiles…just gave him a pat on the back and wished him the best of luck. It was wild.’


‘I was fired on my second day as a line cook at a Mitzels Restaurant in Washington State back in the ’90s. Turns out I was hired just to threaten the job security of a long-time line cook with an attitude problem; to keep him in line.

‘He got the message and apologized to the manager, and I was fired for “breaking a yolk when flipping fried eggs” one time. I’d been a line cook for a few years by then and thought I was doing pretty good. I was taken out the back door and terminated on day 2.’


‘Guy got hired, while going through orientation realized that his ex gf worked there too, turned around and walked right out the front door.’


‘New guy started on Monday and was gone by Friday. The guy hit some racking in the warehouse with the forklift, boss saw him do it, and the guy decided to lie about it when asked if he knew what happened.’


‘New director starts, at lunchtime goes to cafeteria, pays for the first salad plate (by weight), then goes back twice for refills without paying. Cafeteria has cameras, cafeteria manager talks to the Partner in charge. New director fired before the end of day.’


‘A man was hired to do stock at a tea store that sold lots of delicate China. Manager walked into the back on his like third day and saw him just throwing boxes of tea cups and teapots. Instantly fired.’


‘Didn’t like the boss and on the first day took a piss in the gas tank of his jeep. Bragged about it and It was recorded too.’


‘During their onboarding training, they stole my bosses wallet on camera … 1 hour in.’


‘A 19 year old kid got hired to work the seafood counter. See him twice and then never again. Asked a coworker what happened.

‘He had closed seafood one night and was walking out of the store and the 5 pounds of crab legs he’d stuffed down the back of his pants fell out in front of the closing manager.
