McDonald’s closes in 30 minutes, customer wants “fresh” food

A McDonald’s employee received backlash on TikTok that showed he doesn’t always make orders “fresh” when requested.

The employee, known on TikTok as @deontay30, revealed in a video posted Jan. 18 that if he asks for his meal to be made to order within half an hour of closing time, he may not get what he wants will .

“When you want [their] The food will be freshly prepared and we will close in 30 minutes,” the screen said.

In the video, the worker grabbed a cooked chicken patty from the warming rack and tossed it back into the fryer for a few seconds. Then he pulled it out, shook off the fat, and made the sandwich as usual.

It’s unclear whether the video was intended as a joke or not. Still, many viewers didn’t find it very funny. Several commented that the employee was hired to fill customer orders as requested, while others argued that it doesn’t take long to place a new order.

“When you’re forced to do the job you’re hired to do,” commented one viewer.

“Come on, it’s not that hard to make fresh. I worked at McDonald’s so it doesn’t take that long,” commented another.

Some viewers claimed that “30 minutes until close” means the employee still has 30 minutes to work before beginning the closing routine. Therefore, he should not complain that customers want fresh groceries just before closing time.

“You have 30 minutes, you close in 30, you don’t leave in 30,” wrote one user.

“30 minutes is enough to cook a 4 minute chicken,” commented another.

Other users have been divided on whether or not re-frying food is a bad thing.

“Worked at McDonald’s for 6 years. I can tell when they do that… I’ll send it right back,” shared one viewer.

“I would do this to my fries if I wanted them ‘fresh’ actually I didn’t want them fresh I just wanted them hot,” countered another.
