McDonald’s plans to hold its first national hiring day April 19 to fill 50,000 jobs at its restaurants nationwide.
The company says it is making a concerted effort to add staff as its business improves and more of its restaurants stay open 24 hours a day.
McDonald’s is hiring restaurant crew and management for full-time and part-time jobs.
The company’s hiring goal translates to between three and four hires per restaurant.Turnover slowed the past few years because of the weak economy, the company says. McDonald’s sees this event as an opportunity to attract employees in a tough job market.
It is also trying to shed the negative connotation of employment at the fast-food chain, once dubbed “McJobs.” McDonald’s says about half of the company’s franchise owners and more than 75% of its managers started in entry-level jobs at McDonald’s.”A McJob is one with career growth and endless possibilities,” the company said.McDonald’s held a similar event in its Western region last year. More than 60,000 people applied for 13,000 jobs.Those who are interested now can apply in stores or online. Some restaurants will hold events and interviews on April 19.
