13 Secrets McDonald’s Employees Probably Won’t Tell You

Daniel Kim Views  

A few years ago, Buzzfeed released an article titled “21 Secrets McDonald’s Employees Won’t Tell You.” Keep in mind that menu items and service may vary by country, so there might be differences from the McDonald’s services you’re familiar with locally.

1. Ordering Fries Without Salt

Although it seems like a simple request, it requires more effort than you might think. They need to clear out the pre-made fries and make a fresh batch from scratch.

2. How to Get Fresh and Hot Fries

If you order fries without salt, you’ll get the freshest, crispiest fries because they have to be made fresh.

3. Most Annoying Order: Happy Meals

Making a Happy Meal isn’t hard, but the variety of choices makes it a hassle. “Would you like a cheeseburger, hamburger, or nuggets?” “Which sauce would you like with your nuggets?” “Would you prefer fries or apple slices?” “Milk, juice, or soda?” “Would you like a toy for a girl or a boy?”

4. Drive-Thru Always Comes First

When orders come in simultaneously from the drive-thru and inside the store, the drive-thru customers always get served first.

5. Custom Orders Take Longer

McDonald’s employees are like burger-making machines, expertly crafting and packaging each menu item in a highly systematic way. But when you change the recipe to suit your tastes, it disrupts their process, delaying not just your order but those that follow.

6. Decide What to Order Before You Reach the Counter

Employees have shared that customers who reach the counter without knowing what to order are the worst. That is why it is recommended that you have your decision ready to avoid holding up the line.

7. Employees Hope You Don’t Come to Their Register

When customers approach, every cashier secretly hopes you won’t come to their register.

8. Cleaning Duty is the Best

Cleaning tables, sweeping the floor, and organizing trays are considered the best jobs at McDonald’s because you don’t have to directly interact with customers and can take brief breaks when it’s quiet.

9. The Area Behind the Counter is Always Clean

When there are no customers, employees are required to clean and organize, ensuring that the area remains spotless.

10. Employees Can Take Leftover Food Home

If you’re the last customer before closing, you might get free leftover food. It’s one of the perks for employees.

11. Secret Menu Creations

When no customers are around or after hours, employees sometimes get creative with leftover ingredients to make their own “special menu.”

12. Be Nice for Free Sauce

McDonald’s sauces, like barbecue sauce, usually come with an extra charge. However, if you ask very nicely, the employees might give you one or two for free.

13. They Don’t Spit in Your Food

Employees don’t care enough to do something like that. They simply follow the manual to make your burger. So don’t worry about your food being tampered with.

Now that you know some of the secrets, enjoy your next visit with a bit more insider knowledge!
