So even McDonald's wants us to have qualifications =p

Fast-food giant McDonald's has become one of the first firms to offer its own nationally recognised qualifications.

Last year the company launched a campaign against the dictionary definition of a "McJob". It said the definition as "an unstimulating low-paid job with few prospects" was insulting and out of date.

I would say that definition is about right. There's nothing wrong with working at McDonalds or the like for a first job, or a temporary job till you find something better, but you really are not really going to make it anywhere if you stay there. I think its a good idea that they are going to do shift manager training and such (didn't they do any before?), but there is no way in hell it should be a "nationally recognised qualification".

It really depends on where you live, i'd imagine that living on the minimum wage n the UK is alot easier than living on the minimum wage in the States. For example the highest minimum wage (per hour) availible in the US is about $8.00 (£4.00) Whereas in the UK the minimum wage (per hour) is: £3.40 ($6.74) for persons up to the age of 18. (comparable to the minimum wage for the majority of American States) £4.60 ($9.12) for persons aged 18-21. £5.52 ($10.94) for persons aged 22 and over. Plus everyone gets free healthcare in the UK.

McDonalds is one of those places you avoid putting on your CV due to the image of the drooling subbies struggling to understand an order it evokes, the last thing you want to be doing is listing it as part of your education.

I have a few mates who went to work into Maccy D's after school. Now they are all fat and covered in spots.

Did that get you free food? I knew the manager for a McDonalds, and i could always get free food when she was working, later when she worked at Subway i got the same deal. Too bad i don't care for mcdonalds, the Subway rocked though.

Slightly unrelated story - I was looking at universities, and course requirements. To do Fine Art at Oxford, you need to do Art A-Level and "another A-level". I wonder if they'll count this... XD
