Ex employees such as Carl Lewis, Singer Macy Gray, Ex-White House chief of staff Andrew Card, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos did not too badly after starting out at McDonalds. McDonalds will shortly be able to offer the equivalent of an A-Level to those who study/work with them.

I think this is a good thing but I've been reading a lot of snide posts about this elsewhere.

What do you think of the idea? Do you think it is worthwhile or is it devaluing the coursework of regular qualifications?

Well if someone wants an A-level in hamburgers, they can put it on their cv and just watch the response.

And if you think that's weird, what about this

I worked for McDonalds while going to school.

I knew some managers who were grads of Hamburger U that didn't have the brains or common sense The Great Spirit gave a French Fry.
