McD’s Hiring Day to Showcase Growth Possibilities

Today is National Hiring Day at McDonald’s, and there are plans to bring on 50,000 new workers across its 13,000 U.S. restaurants. Not only does McD’s hope to bring on some new talent, but the company would like to do away with the “McJobs” moniker — the idea that a job with McDonald’s is low-paying, dead-end grunt work.

CNN’s In The Arena blog notes that Starbucks was able to do away with this perception, and the McDonald’s webpage dedicated to today’s hiring spree emphasizes the company’s Restaurant Operations Leadership Practices training and it’s history of promoting internally. CNN also notes that the starting wage for a McDonald’s worker is usually $8 per hour, which is more than the minimum wage.
