This week’s featured employees a firestorm of bad publicity last year. Domino’s pizza employees shocked the world by posting a YouTube video of an employee tainting a delivery order and violating a host of public health codes. The video left Domino’s facing a public relations disaster when it went viral in a matter of hours after being shared on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. The employees were immediately fired and warrants were issued for their arrest. The Domino’s store where the incident occurred had to be shut down and sanitized from top to bottom. In just a few minutes, those employees did major damage to a 50-year old reputation, and Domino’s is still trying to recover today.
