12 People Share Company Secrets…Because They Don’t Work There Anymore

Every company big and small has a lot of secrets that they don’t want the world to know about.

But a bunch of companies are in trouble now because we’re about to hear from AskReddit users who are spilling the beans about places where they don’t work anymore.

Let’s take a look!

“The Walt Disney Company fires employees, then hires them back as consultants without benefits.

All. The. Time.”

“I worked for Wawa for 15 years.

We have recycling bins at the pumps, in front of the store, in the store. It’s single stream recycling. That means nothing should be bagged. Anytime one bag is thrown in the recycling dumpster the entire dumpster will go to landfill and we get charged something like $500.

Out of 900 stores. Not a single one recycles. None of the glass or plastic or paper gets recycled. None of the cardboard. Nothing.”

“I worked for a large school district.

Within the last 10 years, outside cameras have become a standard. What the students and staff don’t know, is that they also record sound. And the principals and upper admin often a**se and use them.

Some even get obsessed and will constantly watch and listen for any gossip or drama. Older schools can use intercoms and phones to listen directly into classrooms as well.”

“At a MAJOR insurance company I wrote software for was very big on security. If we needed to make an update, we weren’t allowed to remote into the server (even though you physically could, it was just against policy).

To make an update, you had to put your changes onto portable storage, show your ID to the security guy, use your key to open the door, get escorted to the server, then they’d observe you via cameras.

The login? “admin”

The password? Blank. Literally no password.”

“A few years ago, David’s Bridal announced that regular and plus-sized wedding gowns would be the same price (like, a size 24 wouldn’t be $150 more than its size 4 counterpart).

They did this by marking up the regular sizes to match the plus-sized prices.”

“I worked for Wawa for 15 years.

We have recycling bins. It’s single stream recycling. That means nothing should be bagged.

Anytime one bag is thrown in the recycling dumpster the entire dumpster will go to landfill and we get charged something like $500.

Out of 900 stores. Not a single one recycles. None of the glass or plastic or paper gets recycled. None of the cardboard. Nothing.”

“Worked at a deli.

The decaf coffee was just regular coffee in a pot with an orange top.”

“My old boss would inflate quotes by thousands and get the contractor to discount them at invoice and use the remaining balance as a credit to renovate his own house.

The client would have 15,000 to redo a roof for example. My boss would charge them 15,000 when in fact it only cost 10,000 and then get the contractor to discount him or credit the remaining 5,000 for his own renovation in his own house.

I’m pretty sure that is called insurance fraud.”

“Worked for ESPN for years….

They used to charge people to be an insider, which gave you fantasy advice if you sent an email.

Those “experts” were myself and other randoms here in Omaha, NE in a call center.

No training, just our opinions.”

“I used to remodel Pizza Huts, Arby’s, Wendy’s, and KFC stores.

Arby’s kitchens were the cleanest I’ve ever seen anywhere. KFC had grease residue, but still clean. Wendy’s wasn’t bad, just not as thorough.

The first Pizza Hut had me swear them off for life, and continued to gusset that opinion for the next 20+ stores. I’ve not eaten Pizza Hut in 25 years. My kids have never eaten Pizza Hut.”

“I worked at a large “organic food” grocery store. Most of our produce wasn’t organic.

Amish people would buy produce, slap a “certified organic” sticker on them, and sell them to us. We knew it but it didn’t stop us because it meant much higher profits. I went to that grocery store’s top “organic food” rival for a job interview.

I was offered the job but I opted to not take it because the drive was too far and the pay wasn’t much more. However, when they gave me a tour, the same Amish produce seller was there. I asked the store manager, “is all of your produce organic?”

She smiled and said, “All of our produce is “labeled” organic, so what do you think?” I said, “I think I recognize those Amish people from my previous job.” And she laughed about that for about ten minutes. Organic food is such a sham.”

“Camera shop I worked in as a kid.

Owner used to make an extra print of the nudes and kept them in a photo album he hid in the back of the shop.

Thought it was funny as a 15 year old. Seems pretty f**ked now.”
