Employee asks if they were wrong to quit on the spot after getting a bad evaluation.


Workplace evaluations can be torture, but receiving a full performance review when you haven't even completed training yet is a serious red flag...

So, when a disgruntled former employee decided to consult the moral compass otherwise known as Reddit's 'Am I the As*hole' about rage-quitting, the jury of internet strangers was eager to weigh in on the gossip.

'AITA (Am I the As*hole) for quitting a job on the spot when they gave me a bad evaluation after only working 15 hours?'

I was talking about this with my sister the other day and she thinks it was a bit of an a*#$ole/drama move on my part. When I was 23, I started working at a clothing store in the mall for some extra money.

I was there for about a week, though I only worked some short training shifts. I worked a total of 15 hours.

The managers pulled me aside and said they gave me an evaluation. It would have been fine, I am open to criticism and improving. However, they gave me a really low score (5 out of 45) saying I was not 'living up to expectations' and it was going to go in my file. They promised it would be amended when I improved.

I pointed out that this was unfair, as I had not been trained on 3/4ths of the things on that list. So why was I getting a low permanent score before my training period was up? I asked for the paper and they said I could not have it, but they would give me a copy.

I told them never mind, this was not a job I saw myself thriving at, and they should find someone else to finish my shift. It was my first long shift. I was supposed to work 7 am to 5 pm but said I didn't care if they had to stay late and left.

They tried to get me to not leave, by saying they would give me a copy of the paper. But I said I wasn't gonna work here any longer and went home. I found a new job babysitting until I finished my degree. I have never been into that store again. AITA?

Here's what people had to say:

Lol NTA (Not the As*hole), they throwing so many red flags here it looks like there's a rip tide at the beach today.

NTA. Sounds less like a clothing store and more like a red flag factory.

NTA. That store would have been a nightmare. I've worked a lot of retail and never heard of that kind of nonsense. Something was going on and you were right to step away.

NTA. 15 hours into a job is definitely not enough time to give an employee evaluation. It's not even enough time for an employee to get used to the work. Leaving was absolutely the right move.

NTA. I bet they didn’t try THAT with the next new hire!

NTA. I'm a manager and I would never give someone an evaluation based on such a short amount of time. I honestly don't know what those people were thinking.

So, there you have it...

Everyone agreed unanimously here that this employee wasn't at all wrong to quit on the spot as this whole work environment seems utterly toxic. When in doubt, rage-quit without a two weeks notice, everyone!
