Front Desk Clerk
Administrative Assistant
Customer Service Representative
Sales Rep at a Cell Phone store

Mcdonald jobs are for

teens
ex-cons
highschool dropouts
Why do you assume the college graduates taking these jobs are newly graduated kids who have the luxury of living at home rent free while they hunt for a job?

Also what makes you so sure that they don't have one of the jobs you mentioned and work at McDonald's as well.

Here's the other unfortunate thing: some college grads didn't spent four years reading and writing. Lots of kids pick terrible majors and then stick themselves with dozens of thousands of dollars of debt and no hope for a well-paying job. That's a totally different issue, though.

Why do they need a Mcdonald's job at all? And of course they would not be living at home rent free but I would hope the rent is not too much since the goal is to eventually get their own place.

If they have a degree they had to do a senior project in order to graduate so that right there makes you overqualified for McDonald's

You seem to not understand anything.

Yes you are right, I will never understand why someone out of college is applying to a minimum wage job

Tack it on to the end of what I'm sure is a very long list.
