Local McDonald's restaurants are preparing to hire approximately 1,000 new employees over the next few weeks to staff up for summer.

By working at McDonald's, individuals can learn work readiness skills that will serve them well into any future career opportunities. In addition to gaining experience and knowledge in the hospitality industry, a job with McDonald's can develop teamwork, customer service, responsibility, and time management skills. 

Crew members can also enjoy various benefits, including the opportunity for professional advancement, free meals, paid vacation, and more.

Local Owner Mike Love says flexible scheduling is one of the most popular benefits among his crew members.

"We understand that our employees have commitments outside of work, whether that's school, family, or other responsibilities," said Love. "We're dedicated to being flexible when life happens."

Local McDonald's owners have created procedures for contactless ways to apply, including online, text message options, and paper applications available in the drive-thru. Restaurants are also offering virtual interviews and socially distant opportunities for onboarding new crew members.
