All chicken has to cook for five minutes, so the sooner you tell your cashier, the sooner they can get it in the fryer.

11. There's not necessarily a "secret menu," but as long as the store has the ingredients, they can pretty much make any sandwich you want.

It's true the beef comes in bags, because, like most things you buy, it has packaging. But rest assured, it's solid when it's put in the oven and when it comes out.

19. Intra-work relationships definitely happen.

21. But for the most part, awesome co-workers are the only thing keeping Arby's workers sane.
