For the back-to-school time period, McDonald’s is looking to hire more than 1,000 restaurant employees throughout the Albany, Augusta, Columbus, Macon, Hinesville and Savannah areas this busy season according to a press release.
Tomorrow from 9-11 a.m. and again from 2-6 p.m., job seekers are encouraged to come into more than 150 participating restaurants, submit applications for available crew member and manager positions, and in many cases be interviewed on the spot.
During this time, prospective employees will learn about McDonald's restaurant perks including Archways to Opportunity, a program that provides restaurant employees the chance to earn a high school diploma, receive upfront college tuition assistance (up to $2,500/year), access free education/career advising services and learn English as a second language. All employees who work at least 15 hours per week are eligible for Archways to Opportunity benefits after 90 days.
To date, McDonald’s has given out more than $1.5 Million in tuition assistance and supported nearly 800 restaurant workers in Georgia. If you are interested in learning more about Hiring Day and the Archways to Opportunity program, please let me know.
Those who can't make it to their local restaurant on July 24 can apply online anytime at www.mcdonalds.com/careers, or text apply to 36453.
