Shit Jobs: McDonald’s

Ever Read “The E-Myth“?

It advocates setting up your workplace like McDonalds, because McDonald’s is set up in a way that they can hire low-skilled workers to get the job done. There’s no critical thinking. All they need to do is follow the flow chart.

McDonald’s is the best managed company in the world, right down to the slightly subnormal woman with a weird limp who smokes unfiltered Pall Malls who’s in charge of your shift– she has been indoctrinated perfectly in how to make your day tight as a drum. You aren’t grilling, you take out the trash, you sweep and mop. Drill sergeants aren’t this good.

Sounds like a boring job. That’s why they’re given to 16-year olds.
