Or it's a job inbetween finding the better jobs due to the same criteria that many people have an issue getting the better jobs.

It's almost as if you need a criminal background to qualify for a dish washing position these days. Go break out the ski mask and grab your kid's airsoft gun, it's time to work on your résumé skills!

I can't speak for them, but I applied for the housekeeping job I have because I had experience doing it. I make $12 an hour and that's more than what I was making at my last customer service job($9). Although I have two jobs right now, I'm actually looking for medical assisting jobs since I now have a degree. But those jobs are hard to get.

^this!

Not everyone has the luxury of being able to 'wait it out' when in between jobs. You take what you can get at the time to tie you over and keep on looking for something better.

No being creative in your job search to avoid taking a low level job is a lot better.

Sometimes you have to take that low-level job, even if you have a bachelor's degree.

SO then being jobless while searching for a job is better than taking a low level job? Again, many people do not have the luxury of waiting it out. There are bills to be paid NOW.
