An annoymous thread of Reddit has caused a bit of a stir online. A discussion was started titled 'what did your job ask you to hide from customers?' and some people claiming to be former McDonald's employees came clean on some tricks they were taught to ensure they give their customers the fewest amount of fries possible.
“I worked at McDonald’s and they taught me how to pinch the fry carton just right while putting the fries into them so that it looked full, but actually wasn’t.”
“He shook the fries out into his bag and poured them back into the fry carton himself and it only filled up half way, so I had to give him more fries.
They weren't the only ones to admit to doing this at the fast food chain, many others joined the conversation and confessed the same.
McDonald's told The Sun that "we believe these claims to be fictional, there are no ‘secret tricks’ and we have strict operational procedures in place to ensure that fry portions are not under-filled."
"Without a verified source we are unable to investigate this further."
"Our employees work hard to ensure our customers have the best experience possible in our restaurants, and we strongly refute any claims that suggest otherwise."
