McDonald’s Canada is aiming to hire more than 400 employees across B.C., this July.
The ambitious target is part of the restaurant’s annual ‘West Hiring Day’ initiative, a one-day employment blitz where candidates are encouraged to visit their local restaurant to learn about the opportunities and benefits of working for the company.
Job seekers will have the opportunity to apply in-restaurant, with the possibility of an on-the-spot interview by a member of the restaurant management team. Participating restaurants across the province, will seek to hire crew, managers, as well as guest experience leader positions.
New to the event this year is a ‘Friends Wanted’ campaign, which targets prospective candidates and encourages them to apply with a friend. When individuals apply, they can mention each other’s names to have their applications linked. Friends have the opportunity to be hired and trained together.
“Together with fellow franchisees, we are excited to be creating new employment opportunities in unique ways, like ‘Friends Wanted,’ across B.C.,” said Tim Pink, McDonald’s Kelowna, B.C., franchisee. “Whether July 10 brings in two high school friends looking for part-time jobs, or a seasoned professional looking for a management position, West Hiring Day is important for our organization.”
