A McDonald’s worker recently hosted a questionaire on Reddit about his experience working for the chain and he warns against ordering the grilled chicken sandwich.
If you’re expecting him to rip apart the company, think again — user GamesMisconduct63 actually likes his job a lot, crediting the great employees that he works with. But he was still able to share a lot of interesting tidbits about the biggest restaurant chain in the country.
At the job, he has gotten ice cream thrown at him, cursed at and been told that someone would kill him. Someone has also attempted to pay in board game money, according to the Huffington Post.
While he can only speak for his location in Ohio, he sets the record straight about tampering with food. “Contrary to popular belief, NOBODY (at our location, at least) would ever, ever mess with the food that is going to a customer. That’s like the biggest [expletive] move ever.”
If burgers are already made, this particular franchise lets burgers sit in the steamer for 10 minutes maximum. He claims it takes about an hour before the burgers lose their “structural integrity.”
The McDonald’s where he works also cleans the tables and floors in the lobby every 10 minutes.
The worst items to prepare? Happy Meals. The employees need to know the type, the drink, fries or apple dippers, sauce if nuggets and the correct toy for a boy or girl. After that, oatmeal and iced coffee are the most time consuming.
GamesMisconduct63 is certainly a happy worker despite what he puts up with. “The management and my fellow workers are what has made it an amazing experience, and has made me look forward to going to work nearly every day. Every day is a new experience, always full of funny stories, controversies, etc. Wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
And about that grilled chicken sandwich? Well, he says it doesn’t sell too well, so they can sit in the steamer for a while. If you enjoy the McDonald’s ice tea, then you should know that the restaurant chain adds a 4 pound bag of sugar per every 3.5 gallons.
