Bachelors Degree requirement for Mickey D's!!!!!! - page 3

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... Read More

    I used to joke on bad nights I was going to get a job as a barista at Starbucks.

    There's no shame in honest work, even working at McD's. So to all of you who had to take jobs in retail, customer service, fry/donut cook, etc., to get by, good on you. I can respect that.

    That being said...I realize that it's an employers' job market and they can be as picky as they like, but IMO requiring a bachelors' to work in entry-level fast food positions is a BIT ridiculous. Good that the story isn't true.

    Was misinformation in the post as evidenced by :McDonald's Job Ad Requires Potential Cashiers Have A College Degree, Eatery Claims It's Not True (PHOTO) (UPDATE)..but in the not too distant future I can see this being true...

    Putting up a post without a link to verify the post with a subject that is hard to believe; hmmmm..... Plus the fact that as soon as the job add came out McDonalds promptly made a statement to the media verifying that it was a misprint. We are professional RNs and posting misinformation only gives anxiety to those who are not working and are already anxious in this economy.

    I worked as a waitress before, during and after college. It was a 4 star restaurant and I made about as much money as I did when I first started out in nursing. Anyone who would believe that you need a degree to be a cashier isn't thinking logically. The sky is not falling and chicken little is still a myth.

    This is about verifying your sources and acting professionally.

    Requiring a Bachelors degree for that? And probably still being paid minimum wage? Makes me thankful for nursing.
    Not really, these days being a new grad nurse (especially an old stale grad like me ), we probably are at the same employment level as someone who has a degree in philosophy or history or whatever. There are nurses who have to do the same thing as them these days to pay the bills (or should I say loans )

    Spoiler alert! This was an April Fools joke-- no such requirement.

    At the time that I found and posted this, there was no counter-statement. It must have come out after I logged off and went to work.....not at McDonald's. (But I did stop there on my way.) Every interesting post has its counterpart. I found the interesting one and when someone else found the counter-part, I acknowledged it back on page 2 of this post, if you want to CHECK that, too. (Sometimes, the counter-part can take years to be published....I had a 3-hour drive to work; couldn't chance the wait.)

    Ive heard that as well. Even if the post wasnt true it is something to think about. I got paid pretty well as a waitress as well but the difference in now and then is now I dont have to worry about no getting paid the same amount every night and its alot more consistent.

    . All they're going to end up with is someone who will bolt at the very first opportunity.
    I'm sure they're used to high turnover from all the school kids they "used " to hire. Just ensures that they can keep the wages low.
    Hmm sounds alot like nursing now- High turnover=low wages
