Fellow redditors who work/worked somewhere like Dominos or McDonalds, what is the policy on eating the things that you make/sell?

  1. Might get a free meal for your break if your shift is long enough, depending upon policy of the individual store.

    No eating while working. It’s a health code issue.

    Most often no eating any leftover food at end of shift. Store managers think employees might make extra near the end of shift just to have leftovers to eat or take home.

  2. I worked at Burger King as a teen. I was the chicken nuggets, chicken sticks, fries, etc guy. Each item I made had a shelf life of 7 minutes. Once it had been sitting out for 7 minutes I had to toss it in the trash. This was incredibly wasteful because I had to keep a running stock of fresh nuggets, even if demand was low at the time.

    Also, if I ate a nugget that had been out for 8 minutes before throwing it away, I had to purchase an entire order of nuggets to make up for it.

  3. This will vary a lot between stores as many are franchised, so down to the owner.

    My Domino’s was tight as hell, so i could only get a medium pizza on a long shift, 2 toppings, 1 could be meat. Short shift meant small pizza.

    My go to was garlic sauce base with bacon and mushrooms. Delicious!

    The policy on accidental pizzas was only delivery drivers could have them to prevent shop staff “accidentally” making the pizzas they wanted to take home end of night.

  4. Worked at McDonald’s in Australia, if you’re the manager it’s free once a day, if you’re below it’s 50% off if you were below manager position I think it was $15/$20 when I left, however I did work Christmas day and I was allowed get the 50% and a free meal as a Christmas gift, I’m still glad I left thought if im being honest
