Another former employee wrote: "For the one, I worked at in high school.Burgers are kept in a warming area for no more than 15 minutes then thrown out and new ones are made. You get a free meal from anything except the salads. The meal is a sandwich, medium fries and a medium drink.At the end of the night, all the cooked meat is thrown out. If you want you can use it to make burgers and take them home with you."
