Virginia Floyd Fuller is 78 years old. What makes her so unique? She’s a full-time employee at Burger King.
Fuller works six days a week. She’s only off Wednesdays, works every weekend and every holiday, all at her request. She does whatever is requested of her — cleaning the bathrooms, picking up parking lot litter, taking the trash out, and more.
Josh Bell, manager at Burger King is highly impressed with Fuller. “She has been working for me and my family since 1997. She’s a hard worker, but I believe her work ethic could be inspiring to our youth or anyone,” said Bell
Fuller began working at Burger King when she was 58. “My husband passed away, and I realized I needed money. I went to the manager of BK and asked for a job. The manager was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to do the jobs required, but I promised to work my **** off,” said Fuller. She laughed and said, “Yes, I was told I wouldn’t last five years. Here I am 22 years later!”
Bell stated, “I wish I had more employees like her. A 78-year-old woman who has been working at Burger King for 22 years is an inspiration, and this woman works hard, especially at her age,” added Bell.
