If you are looking for work, McDonald's restaurants may have a job for you. They are planning to hire over 11,000 employees in North Carolina this summer, as restaurant dining rooms reopen.
McDonald's has also implemented nearly 50 new safety procedures as in-restaurant dining becomes available in many locations. These additional safety standards are designed to protect both restaurant crew and customers during the pandemic.
"It was important to us to stay open through Drive Thru, take-out and delivery to serve our communities throughout the COVID-19 crisis. As local business owners, we're proud to provide employment and educational opportunities to our crew and look forward to welcoming new employees to our McFamily this summer," said Wade Dixon, local McDonald's Owner/Operator in North Carolina. "We are a people business at our core, and as we look to re-open our dining rooms, the safety and wellness of our customers and employees is a top priority, as it has been throughout our 65-year history. That's why we have implemented significant safety processes in our restaurants and will continue to adhere to a set of national minimum standards laid out by McDonald's as well as following any state and local laws."
In addition to landing a summer job, employees will also have the chance to further their education.
"This year marks the five-year anniversary of Archways to Opportunity and so far McDonald's has given out more than $100 million in tuition assistance and supported more than 55,000 restaurant workers and corporate employees. Eligible after just 90 days and 15 hours a week, restaurant employees can earn a high school diploma and receive $2,500 in upfront college tuition assistance. Restaurant employees can also access free education and career advising services and the opportunity to learn English as a second language. Archways to Opportunity has proven to promote opportunity and mobility for McDonald's diverse employee community... More than 50 percent of the participants are individuals who identify as people of color and almost two-thirds of participants are women. To date, McDonald's has given out more than $382,000 in tuition assistance and supported 216 restaurant employees in North Carolina," according to the company statement.
