Any menial, low-paying, unskilled, dead-end job, including (but not limited to) those in the fast food industry, which requires zero creative or intellectual involvement, and whose sole motivation is a paycheck (i.e., no one works a McJob because they like it or care about the work). The employee may also be required to wear a silly and degrading uniform. Examples outside of the food service industry include Wal-Mart greeter and movie ticket clerk.

McJobs are usually filled by teenagers, bored retired people looking for something to do, retards, and struggling single parents in need of a second income.

Turnover is high, but because practically anyone has the skills necessary to perform a McJob, the company can just hire more interchangeable McEmployees off the streets.

The term's allusion to mass-produced fast food implies both the mechanical, unfulfilling nature of the work, and the disposable, interchangeable manner in which the company treats its employees.
We need to expand the skilled job market, not just create more McJobs.

NOUN Slang. A job, usually in the retail or service sector, that is low paying, often temporary, and offers minimal or no benefits or opportunity for promotion.

A menial, soul-crushing, minimum-wage job that many of us are stuck at with no other options, for the simple reason that we lack some piece of paper saying we're smart.

This doesn't stop spoilt fucks from calling us losers, however.
McJob? At least I've got a damn job you leeching shit. Enjoy your spitburger, fuckface.

A job that is a dead end position with no potential for advancement, usually a teen job.
