    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???

    Maybe the registers kept coming up short so now a college degree is required to count money. Would a CPA get the job?

    And take a 100 years to pay off all that debt you incurred getting that degree! Ridiculous.

    In this sluggish economy, I'll bet top dollar that some people will actually respond to this employment ad. All those unemployed college grads who majored in literature, philosophy, and sociology need job prospects, too.

    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!

    LOL, I worked at two different McDonald's locations many moons ago (1998), and the only workers who received benefits were the store manager and assistant store manager. None of the cashiers or crew members received benefits, even the ones who were full-time, because their minimum wage earning were too low to afford the deductions from their paychecks.

    BTW, I know of someone with a nursing license who works part time at a fast food joint due to an inability to find that first nursing job one year after graduation.

    Not going to lie; I considered working at Dunkin Donuts in that in-between after graduating from nursing school, when I worked at my hospital as a PCT, before they said they would hire me as an RN. Desperate times, desperate measures

    Lol I work part time as a waitress (start my first nursing job next week) and you would be surprised at how many of my co workers are college educated! Like the previous post said, unemployment is especially bad for people who have degrees in philosophy or some BS like that. Managers can be picky now days.

    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.
