McJob

Slang; a job with low pay and few or no benefits that requires few skills and offers few opportunities for advancement. McJobs have low prestige and may be temporary. In any case, they have high turnover. Generally they are in the retail or service sectors. The term is derived from McDonald's, a fast-food restaurant chain.
