i was bored.. as usual.. and i was checking out manager jobs at like wendys and jack in the box and they both wanted you to have a 2 year college degree to be a manager.. um.. why would some one go to college for 2 years to go be a manager at a fast food place?? i mean some people may like that but i wouldnt see how it would end up evening out money wise on how much college cost compared to the job.. are they just trying to raise the standard for employees?

You should have practical experience as well,...along with degree. Though having degree will be great... but if I am the person authorized to select or appoint the manager , I would give importance to how much practical experience , you have...

I think they are being unrealistic. I have had managers work under me that are only high school, that were super. The only thought that is required are opening and closing managers that have to fill out the daily reports. It doesn't take a college education, just training.

thats what i think.. i think they should become managers from experience more than education.. its horrible to think that the lower level employees may just be stuck at their level just because they cant go to college but have worked there 20 years and know the place inside out

It's dang near impossible to get a job doing anything nowadays. Even the tinest jobs need degrees, and one has to have money to go to college. One needs a job to earn money, one needs to go to college to get a job, one needs a job to pay for college that one needs to go to to earn a degree so that they can GE the job they need in orde to pay fo college, and the cycle starts all oer again.
