ORLANDO, Fla. -
McDonald’s franchise owners are on a hiring spree to employ 5,000 people at their Florida restaurants and 1,000 of those positions are being offered in Central Florida.
Nearly 700 McDonald’s restaurants in Florida have been transformed over the past two years, featuring remodeled buildings, side-by-side drive-thrus, digital self-order kiosks, and table service. Many even offer delivery.
The restaurants are seeking friendly people who serve as McDonald’s concierges in the dining room, helping guests place their orders on the new self-order kiosks and ensuring dining room guests are delighted with their table service.
McDonald’s owner/operators are also recruiting for crew members, shift managers, kitchen managers, guest service managers, and people managers.
“With all the investments we’ve recently made in McDonald’s, we recognize great people bring it alive for our guests,” said Tyrous Ingram, a local Owner/Operator, who owns and operates five McDonald’s restaurants in Central Florida. “Through June 15 we intend to recruit and train almost 1000 people here in Central Florida to join our teams. It’s ambitious, and we’re excited to share with potential new hires why McDonald’s is committed to being America’s best first job.”
In Central Florida, on June 7 and 8, job seekers can go to any McDonald’s location between 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. to learn about a variety of open positions.
McDonald’s and its independent franchisees want restaurant employees to learn, develop and succeed in their careers and in life. McDonald’s offers a compelling suite of benefits, flexible scheduling, upward mobility, paid time off, and fun working environment. Through its nationwide Archways to Opportunity program, restaurant workers can attend free English classes, earn a free high school diploma and earn upfront tuition assistance toward a college degree.
