Bachelors required in a burger joint? Really? So, deductive reasoning would suggest that a new grad ASN-RN who can't find a job would not meet the requirements to flip burgers at Mickey D's. What on Earth is the word coming to???... Read More

    I quit when they threatened to fire me during my second week there during rush hour if the fries didnt get out fast enough. Also a kid threw up on the slide and the girl who cleaned it slipped and fell in it and they told her she couldnt go home and change or she would get fired... Not for me.

    I've also worked at McDonald's while I was in high school. Hated it. It wasn't as much the open hours but closing the inside and finding all the nasty messes...

    The last straw for me there was finding some ranch dressing that had spilled under a booth and was covered with a flyer thing and baked all day. I barfed while cleaning it up and quit on the spot. Not worth $5/hr and I just didn't get to shop every week.

    Requiring a Bachelors degree for that? And probably still being paid minimum wage? Makes me thankful for nursing.

    So would this make the Associates degree as entry level there?

    I suppose in this economy, they can pretty much stipulate anything. And you know there are people with degrees desperate for a job. Sad, though.

    Nursing isn't at the leading edge when it comes to degree inflation, but it's not at the back of the pack either. Appears McD's is the back of the pack. Was only a matter of time.
    My buddy who is a plumber and learned his job through a paid apprenticship makes as much as what CRNAs start at in my hospital. He will laugh all the way to the bank.

    So, would ANY bachelor degree work? Or would it be in business admin? I wonder....if it was me, I wouldn't apply for the cashier's position; I would tell the manger, "gimme YOUR job"! Lol.

    Lots of people will fight for an interview for this job - careerchangers who nursing failed to employ, lawyers, accountants and just about everybody else who really needs a job with benes!
    Income plus you get your meals. Win:win.

    I worked at Burger King for a while when I was in high school (70's). I loved working in the drive-thru; it was the fast food equivalent of the ED.

    It's a lie.

    “There has been some misinformation reported by an independent job site with no relationship to the Winchendon, Mass., McDonald’s. The original job posting, which could be accessed through McState.com, did not require a bachelor’s degree. We are working diligently to have the misinformation removed from the site, but to date the website has been unresponsive to our requests. We do not require a bachelor’s degree for employment. My organization is an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse workforce.”

    There are more than 50,000 English literature degrees awarded each year, they gotta work somewhere.
