From McDonald's Canada Website.
This is a great question. The short answer is that our burgers do rot under the right conditions, but we can see why there's some confusion out there. To clear things up, we reached out to one of Canada's foremost food scientists, Dr. Keith Warriner. He's the Program Director at the University of Guelph's Department of Food Science and Quality Assurance. Here's what he had to say:"There have been a lot of online videos and photos touting the fact that when left out for an extended period of time, a McDonald's hamburger does not rot and that this is because they are laden with chemicals. The reality is that McDonald's hamburgers, french fries and chicken are like all foods, and do rot if kept under certain conditions.
Essentially, the microbes that cause rotting are a lot like ourselves, in that they need water, nutrients, warmth and time to grow. If we take one or more of these elements away, then microbes cannot grow or spoil food.
In the example of a McDonald's hamburger, the patty loses water in the form of steam during the cooking process. The bun, of course, is made out of bread. Toasting it reduces the amount of moisture. This means that after preparation, the hamburger is fairly dry. When left out open in the room, there is further water loss as the humidity within most buildings is around 40%. So in the absence of moisture or high humidity, the hamburger simply dries out, rather than rot.
With moisture loss, we take away an element required by microbes to grow and cause spoilage. So to spoil a McDonald's hamburger, we simply need to prevent the moisture loss. This can be done through wrapping it in cling film to prevent moisture from escaping, or storing it within a high humidity environment, such as a bathroom (notice black mould on your bathroom windows but not in your bedroom). If you try doing the same experiment with a homemade burger with similar moisture content as a McDonald's hamburger and under similar conditions, you'll probably get the same results."

it stands for restaurant department manager .. basically it eliminates the assistant manager position with 3 shift managers that are in charge of 3 different departments .. the departments are

-grill manager which is in charge of putting in the order for deliveries and managing food cost and waste and everything in the kitchen including cleaning and everything

-service manager is in charge of most of the pm tasks ( preventative maintenance ) including cleaning the orange juice and mccafe and frappe/smoothie machine and calibrating it. also in charge of putting up all the pop for the store .. pop is point of purchase and is all the window decals lawn signs price stickers when price's change

-people manager in charge of putting the preliminary schedules together so that the gm only has to review and edit them. in charge of interviewing applicants and sending the preferred to gm for his interview and hire. in charge of assigning soc's to crew trainers and getting training done.

rdm is great because instead of the assistant manager doing the order schedules and pop its now split into 3 departments that report to the gm. a lot more responsibility is given and less weight of the gm's shoulder so that he can focus more on running a profitable store.

also main benefit is that the 3 rdm managers cycle through the rdm positions to learn how to do all 3 so that by the time they know all 3 they know how to do schedules to the order to price changes and if the gm gets fired or promoted the owner has 3 highly trained qualified candidates to choose from instead od 1 assistant manager that might not be that great and is the only 1 that is trained. its really revolutionizing the store operations and making stores become much more profitable and fun . everyday instead of just showing up we report to which ever department manager's team we are assigned to and give us cleaning different duties to do. ( every crew member is assigned to a differet rdm team) gm has his own team that does other things also . its fun

sorry for the long explanation and you prob aren't into it enough like me to care about it but its a really cool thing if you plan on going into management if your store starts it .

you prob know more about it than your gm does know lol

big mac sauce is thousand island i believe

greaciest item there idk what do you think op? maybe sausage ?

no secrets we hide from customers!

no idea on expiration on nuggets i think its a month or 2 but you know its a shitty store if someone isn't doing rotation whenever a delivery comes in. longest a box of nuggets is in our store for is 3 days max! we get deliveries twice a week. and I'm saying 3 days max never longer .. certain items like bulk coke or some nugget sauce's are in there for up to a week or 2 depending on customers want/s preference at that period

Breast, Thigh, Leg and some skin for taste and as a binder.

We get a shipment of things we need every 4-5 days.. we'll have a box of nuggets left before the new shipment comes in.

Greasiest? probably fries since they're deep fried.

And what's in the big mac sauce?
Here's a video from McDonald's Canada.

lol, bmwcoq and steven747 work at mcdonalds. Did not expect that from such respected and knowledgeable members of the E46F community.

Actually, I'm kinda proud for bmwcoq for spending more time getting a job than making threads. Steven... I can't say the same for that guy and all his "smart" and "useful" posts on this forum, LOL.

Are these all unhealthy items?

Obviously the french fries are unhealthy, the hash browns, the sundays, mcflurry's, McRib when it's in town, the sausage and bacon mcgriddle, the fountain drinks unless u take soda or water...

But our burgers are no different then a home made burger, our salads are really good, you can take grilled chicken instead of crispy chicken and ease on the sauce or none at all.. Our fish is 100% fish, our chicken is 100% chicken, so is our beef.. the snack wraps have a grilled option also.

Go to a supermarket and most of the chicken nuggets you'll find are processed, so are the burgers unless u buy fresh ground beef.

i might not know the techy techy aspects of cars and i go out on a limb sometimes and screw around saying what i think, but at business/franchising / and running a high volume restaurant I'm pretty much on par with everything there is to know.
