Busy mornings call for improvisation, and that might even mean grabbing your coffee on the go instead of brewing it at home.

The employee went on to explain that this was due to the fact that the staff members were never taught how clean the machine properly, not even the managers! "Not only are staff not properly trained in its cleaning and maintenance, at almost every McDonald's I've had experience with, the managers in charge of training them don't know either," they continued.
