Guy Goes Scorched Earth On His Bosses By Emailing His Exit Interview To The Entire Company On His Way Out

by 1 year ago


Who among us hasn’t had a boss at one point in time that when we quit our job we didn’t want to just go off on him? Most of us don’t do it because of that whole burning bridges, might need a reference thing, but not this guy.

After 35 years working for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, the hero of this story, Michael Stuban, decided, “Fuck it.”

In his final moments working for the company, Stuben made a decision that few would. He decided rather than send his exit interview, in which he blasted his bosses, just to human resources as required, he would just send it out to all 2,000 employees.

When asked what the most upsetting part of the job was in the questionnaire, Stuben replied

“The phoneyness. Giving us classes where we are being told we are not political. That’s Butt Shit. Jobs/Promotions are filled by the politicians, it’s who you know, not what you know. Positions created for people who are not qualified. Hiring people off the street when we have qualified [personnel] in our ranks.”

He also said that employees there “have no morale” and that executive-level management is “out of touch with the average employees” and “only looking out for themselves.”

“Everything is a state secret, no input is asked from the until after decisions are made. Employees are kept in the dark,” he added.

Sean Logan, chairman of the Turnpike Commission and one of the people who received the email, also decided to reply-all…

“Mr. Stuban… I don’t believe we ever met, and after reading your Exit Questionnaire, I am grateful that we didn’t.” He then added that the company “couldn’t be to [sic] bad of a place considering you stayed for 35 years. Best of luck in your retirement.”

Later, Stuben caught wind of Logan’s reply from his former employees and had this to say to the Philadelphia Daily News, “He did miss the point. If it was an effective company and someone told you there are problems and no morale, you don’t have to believe me, but maybe someone should check into it.”

“They hire a lot of people that are dumb as rocks,” he added.

Below is how I imagine a live look at his fellow employees…
