McDonald’s Plans To Add 50,000 Jobs On ‘Hiring Day’

Need a new job? Mickey D’s is hiring.

Fast-food chain McDonald’s Corp announced a one-day spring hiring spree aimed at fighting the use of the term “McJob” as shorthand for describing low-wage, dead-end work.

The global restaurant chain said it plans to hire as many as 50,000 new U.S. employees — ranging from restaurant crew to managers — on April 19.

“Our total hires are similar to past years, but the goal of hiring 50,000 people in one day across the U.S. is unique,” McDonald’s spokeswoman Ashlee Yingling told Reuters.

The April hiring event is preparation for the busy summer months. “But these are not just seasonal jobs. It’s a mix of permanent and temporary jobs,” Yingling said.

She added that McDonald’s hourly employees typically make more than minimum wage, often more than $8 per hour.

McDonald’s said it and its franchisees would be spending an extra $518 million on wages and salaries for the 50,000 new workers it plans to hire.

McDonald’s held a similar event in its Western region last year. More than 60,000 people applied for the 13,000 positions.

Those who are interested can apply in stores or online. Some restaurants will hold events and interviews that day.

McDonald’s is based in Oak Brook, Ill.
