pp_default1

An Argos worker has been given the boot following public criticism of his bosses on social networking site, Facebook.

Reported by the Sun, Tom Beech, 20 supposedly set up I Work At Argos And Can’t Wait To Leave Because It’s Sh** on the site.

Beech was duly sacked for gross misconduct from his £6.55 an hour job in Wokingham, Berks, following a disciplinary hearing.

The sacked employee told the paper: “I’m stunned they’ve fired me for this. I had a really bad day and was feeling overworked and under-paid. My mistake was to sound off on Facebook. I wish I’d moaned at a mate.”

Last week, HR Zone, reported a warning by an employee screening company which said that career hungry candidates should stay clear of social networking sites like Facebook to safeguard their career prospects.
