McDonald’s crew members have a few horror stories to share.
Sometimes, customers can be pretty mean. Other times, things just get weird.
Take, for instance, the time performance artists stormed a Moscow McDonald’s in 2007 and threw a cat across the counter. “The idea, they said, was to help snap the workers out of the dull routine of menial labor,” Reuters reported.
Business Insider spoke with several current and former crew members and heard some of their worst, grossest, and strangest stories about working at the fast food giant.
