if your working at McDonald's, you are in a entry level job.
Oh well that changes things.
Mcdonald's is not an 'entry level' position, it's a McJob.
Meant for students & business professionals who want to run fast foot joints and make money. To claim that these are careers or qualify as Entry
Level is insane IMO. I consider an entry level position to be something you studied for and have a degree for.
Or a cert from college or something of that nature.
This is an outstanding point. "Entry level" implies that there is a potential for growth. I guess at McDonalds you have that potential (and can
actually end up owning your own establishment if you are able to survive long enough).
My first "job" where someone was paying a wage, was cleaning pools for an old man named Leroy. His wife made him hire me because he had passed out
due to blood sugar, and she was worried he'd end up falling in the pool and drowning. Me and Leroy travelled all over the Plains Trail region
cleaning pools out on far flung farms.
Was that "entry level"? No. It could be called "dead end" because there is no chance to advance. It was a summar job.
I think that potential for growth likely should be verbalized by the employer. it isn't often that a 19 year od is hired as a night stocker at Wal
Mart, and 20 years later end up being an executive VP in that industry. Night stocker is not "entry level". Even though it may be done by 19 year
