>>26377111 no, you are overqualified. you will resent the pay and the work, you will cause friction among the other employees who aren't as overqualified, and there is nothing you from dropping the job like a hot potato when something better comes along when a minimum wage worker that NEEDS the job is a better long term investment for retaining at a lower pay and doing the work.
>>26377111 Yes, but they already assumed you gonna be also looking for work somewhere with a better pay and will quit as soon as you get hired somewhere else, so hiring you and giving you training would be a waste of time and resources.
>>26377286 >that doesn't make sense this is why you aren't in business for yourself more than likely.
it costs time to train you, to get you a uniform, to get you any relevent benefits, to pay the logistical train of managers, office workers, et c that support your employment, on top of your wages and the taxes and fees the employers pays for your hire.
that fixed cost is the same for an employee that is in the same circumstance (same store, same job).
given that, why on earth would an employer want to hire someone that is a flight risk (leaving the job and putting the store at risk and expense) for a better job vs hiring someone that isn't (because they need the job for bills and have little socioeconomic mobility to get a better job)?
think about it. in one, the risk of hiring you, and a replacement for you when you leave is significantly greater than hiring the other guy. ergo i would rather hire the other guy and not deal with you at all. your experience and degree does not significantly benefit fry cooking or burger making or cashiering when there are in-place controls and infrastructure that removes a lot of the human decision making element from the manufacturing process.
>>26377445 they aren't actually. the only reason to pay more than the minimum wage is to be competitive against other businesses. the individual generally has no meaningful impact on the wage earned. the fact that higher pay often comes with higher education is a correlation, not a causation.
>>26377286 But they assume you are also applying to not just McDonalds but other places as well and with your credentials it wouldnt be unlikely, as I said, to get hired somewhere with better conditions. A place that without a doubt you would drop your job at McDonalds to work there. A new employee its an investment and having you its riskier than an average fuck that needs a job.
>On my resume, it shows how I haven't left a place for less than 8 months. Thats Irrelevant, its fucking McDonalds we are talking, its the bottom of the barrel. Anyone would drop it on the instant you get something better.
