McDonald’s Job Now Requires College Grad Bachelors Degree

Talk about a competitive job market! McDonald’s is now requiring a bachelors degree for full time cashier positions! – THAT’S RIGHT! These days only college graduates need apply..

Let’s just say, I missed that day in school. I missed a lot of days in school, but I’ve somehow managed to get along in life without ever having to step foot behind the McDonald’s counter… Not that there’s anything wrong with that mind you. What there IS something wrong with is – IF I wanted to work at the fast food giant today, the chances are, I wouldn’t even be allowed behind the counter! At least not behind the cash register.. No degree, no job!

Check out this copy of a call-out just posted for a Winchedon, Massachusetts, McDonald’s, says one must have 1-2 years of cashier experience and a college bachelors degree!

McDonald’s Drops Healthy Salad Chicken Select and Premium Angus From Menu

Am I the only one surprised that McDonald’s is dropping its fruit and walnut salad as well as premium chicken and “maybe” the Angus beef products? Seems the hamburger chain is going back to their roots of greasy burgers and oil soaked fries…

“As always, we are constantly evolving our menu and listening to our customers to meet their changing needs,” McDonald’s spokeswoman Danya Proud said in a statement. The world’s biggest hamburger chain for years held a huge lead against most competitors, but some of those chains now are luring away diners with fast-changing menus featuring tempting new food.

Burger King and Wendy’s recently mimicked McDonald’s by adding coffee drinks, smoothies and salads. Then, they used their smaller size to their advantage by introducing a barrage of limited-time and seasonal menus. Source.

Well that takes a few healthy things off the menu, so what will McDonald’s replace them with? Fried Twinkie’s?

A McDonald’s in Sydney, Australia has hired SelectaDNA, a security firm who’s specialty is a DNA catcher spray meant to douse robbers as they flee the scene of the McCrime.

“A spokesperson for McDonald’s said the company will increase the use of ‘SelectaDNA‘ in stores all over the Austrailia before moving the project to the U.S.

”The move comes as police ramp up their patrols of local McDonald’s restaurants after a spate of robberies across Sydney during the Christmas and New Year period.” reported The Sydney Morning Herald.

 
The company hopes the newly installed systems will deter robbers from stealing from the Golden Arches.

DOLLAR MENU MITT! Romney Spotted At McDonald’s BEFORE Obama Lunch Date

Apparently Mitt Romney is either a very hungry person or he simply didn’t trust whatever they were going to feed him at the White House because as this picture shows, Romney dined at McDonald’s shortly before meeting the president for lunch!

We don’t know exactly what Romney ordered, but we know one of the item was a McFlurry milkshake. I think it’s safe to say Mitt didn’t have to order off the dollar menu.

Why Did Someone Pay Nearly $10,000 For A 1992 Jug Of BBQ Sauce?
