OAK BROOK, Illinois— McDonald’s Corp. will hold its first national hiring day April 19 to fill 50,000 openings at its restaurants in the U.S.
The company, based in Oak Brook, Illinois, says it is making a concerted effort to add staff as its business improves and as more of its restaurants stay open 24 hours a day.
McDonald’s is hiring restaurant crew and management for full-time and part-time positions. The company’s hiring goal translates to between three and four new hires per restaurant.
Turnover slowed in the past few years because of the weak economy, the company says. McDonald’s sees this event 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.” About half of its franchisees and more than 75 percent of its managers started as store workers.
“A McJob is one with career growth and endless possibilities,” the company said in a statement.
McDonald’s held a similar event in its Western region last year. More than 60,000 people applied for the 13,000 positions.
