32 Secrets People Can Now Reveal Because Their NDA Expired

The best part of leaving a job is gossiping about all the secrets you held onto throughout the course of your employment. And while the ubiquity of NDAs has prolonged the process of spilling the beans, it almost makes it more satisfying when you finally can. 

These Redditors have escaped the clutches of their nondisclosure agreements and divulged the wildest things they learned on the job, including a special ingredient in Jimmy John’s tuna sandwiches, an Equifax reveal that probably won’t surprise you and a major reason to never use DocuSign on your phone. 

We salute these heroes and thank them for their complete and total honesty.

DrumBxyThing 3y ago I was part of the beta testing for DC universe online. I remember a few missions that were voiced probably just by developers, before they hired the voice actors to do it. I wish I had saved footage of it but there was one where Supergirl was clearly voiced by a man doing a high-pitched falsetto voice. One of the funniest things I've ever seen. 3.1K ...

Stevesegallbladder 2y ago Not quite an NDA but a contract of non- competition and we had to sign we wouldn't discuss the recipes with other restaurants. That being said....

broganisms 2y ago e Edited 2y ago When a pharmacy's stock of medication expires, they can't just throw it away. So they hire pharmaceutical waste disposal companies to take it away and dispose of it properly. The pharmacy I worked for bought expired medication and supplies under the table from one of these disposal companies and resold them at full price.

GGATHELMIL 3y ago Used to work in a warehouse where we made feminine hygiene products. The pads came out of one machine into several different branded boxes. Both the nickel gas station pads and the 10 dollar a box pads. Also we had one product of pads where we imported them from china, then repackaged them into our own boxes. I didn't have a problem with that. The problem I had was the box had an emblem saying made in America Would've been ok if it said assembled in America. But no. 11K ...

cburgess7 3y ago I had to sign an NDA before working with Sears. It was basically saying I wouldn't talk about the tactics they were using to survive in a changing world. That didn't age well. It was difficult to keep a straight face during orientation, but I knew they were going to be bankrupt in a few years, the writing was on the wall, but at the time I needed the job experience. We also had to sign a non- compete agreement, which I laughed at as well, internally of course 1.3K ...

DocBEsq 3y ago Spoiler alert if you are watching Teen Wolf and haven't gotten past episodes filmed in 2013 but... the character of Allison Argent will be killed off. I was on set when that death was being discussed by cast members and was therefore required to sign an NDA that made me liable for something like $2 million in damages if I disclosed what I knew before the airdate. Genre TV takes its spoilers seriously. 1.6K ...

MatthewBrokenlamp 3y ago You know those Jackbox party games? They have a database full of about a hundred jackbox games that were pitched but not used, since rejected games often get featured in later party packs. Notably, one of those jackbox games is called Poop Cake. Won't detail how it works in case it does get released, but there is a rejected jackbox game called Poop Cake that exists and is officially documented for potential future use. 6.5K ...

In order to protect one studio's particular branding, the NDA prohibited us from disclosing that we were not, in fact, broke straight guys and were, in fact, broke gay guys comfortable getting dicked down on camera. Sorry to break the illusion, I guess? 416 ...

hermi1kenobi 4y ago Victoria Beckham has had a boob job. I'm sure this comes as zero surprise to anyone... but back in the dark ages (nearly 20 years ago) I worked for a very famous gossip magazine - who covered her wedding and was very cosy with the Beckhams - and we had images of her scars. This wasn't now when no one gives a shit, then she was actively denying it because cosmetic surgery was still... somehow embarrassing I guess.

unholyXwater 3y ago Edited 3y ago I signed an NDA for a prominent American show where they take a certain type of business on the brink of failure and transform it to save the business. When the producers of the show found out my wife and I both worked there, they tried to fish through our relationship for tv drama. When they found out we have a solid relationship, they tried to convince us to fake our drama with scripted conflict. Long story short, we got fed up and quit during shooting. We were cut from the show. Oh well.
