Fast-food mega-giant McDonald's wanted to hire 50,000 employees in April—so it hosted a national, one-day “event” at which franchise managers all over the country met and interviewed candidates.
Because there were so many applicants, managers nationwide conducted group interviews on April 19 and later narrowed their selections and scheduled sit-downs with candidates for one-on-one interviews.
The massive onboarding will increase employment by 7% at the company and its 14,000 restaurants nationwide, which already employ 700,000.
Managers reported taking applications from candidates ranging from high school students to engineers.
The hiring binge is the chain’s response to a 2.7% increase in sales last year and a move to keep more of its outlets open 24 hours a day.
The organization held a similar event last year in which more than 60,000 candidates applied for 13,000 jobs.
