What an absolutley riduculous generalisation that all managers are slobs and uneducated.
As a manager in Australia, I have worked for the company for well over 5 years. I successfully completed high school and then went on to complete a double degree in commerce/arts, with my majors being marketing and public relations. McDonalds worked around my hours at university and provided support when I really needed it.
I do not know what it is like to work in any other store in America, Europe or any other state in Australia. What I do know is that sometimes there are people in these management positions which do not take their position seriously and therefore create a bad image for the majority of generally hard working managers. I find this web site futile in its purpose and somewhat lacking in interlectual stimulation. Although I cannot believe I am responding to such a poorly written and obviously thoughtless statement writen by a narrow minded fool, I just could not resist. I believe in the goals and direction of McDonald's and although there are going to be people who disagree with this direction I remain firm in my commitment to this fantastic and exciting company.
