No, it's not a management position. McDonald's hires managers usually from within after having attended Hamburger University, although store managers don't always attend their official training program. My nephew did, though. He took an entry-level job at McDonald's to help work his way through college, and ended up staying with McDonald's, retiring as a regional manager before the age of fifty. Despite what are actually pretty good wages, McDonald's is having trouble finding people who are willing to work. Yet, they did very well during the COVID shutdowns since the majority of their business was drive-through anyhow, and they were set up for it. Meals that cost $5-6 only a few years ago are approaching $15 now. I bought a double-meat with cheese, french fries, and a coffee yesterday, which cost upwards of $14. Every McDonald's drive-through that I've seen in the last year has had help-wanted signs, yet they are short-staffed.
