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”.
“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.
McDonald’s, which is holding the hiring event on April 19 at its restaurants and via its Website, said it and its franchisees would be spending an extra $518 million on wages and salaries on those new employees.
McDonald’s operates some 14,000 U.S. restaurants, 90 percent of which are run by franchisees.
McDonald’s reported that February sales at its U.S. restaurants open at least 13 percent rose 2.7 percent compared with a year earlier.
