It counts if related in any way, otherwise it shows some sense of responsibility to have been working while in school.

It depends on what else you have to put on there. If it's the only employment experience you have, or a large bulk of it (like if you're just graduating college and those are the sorts of jobs you've had), then yes. If you're 55 and your McJob was 30 years ago, no.

What entry level job are you applying for?

The only entry level jobs that require no experience are Mcjobs or sales jobs. For those, your Mcjob experience does not count against you.

For other entry level jobs, Mcjobs count against you, and if you don't put them, you have no experience and that counts against you. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. But that's a general rule, it depends on what entry level you're applying for.

For example if you worked cashier at a Mcjob and you want to get a bank teller job, that works.
