"In this time of economic distress, McDonald's is proud to provide local jobs," says Mike Anton, president of the McDonald's Restaurants of the Greater Philadelphia Region. "A job at McDonald's provides great opportunities for growth within a diverse workforce. We're excited to meet high-quality people who want to work in an engaging and rewarding environment."
Hiring Days are just one of the many ways in which McDonald's shows its commitment to being a good community employer. McDonald's provides employees with opportunities to grow through education assistance and store training programs. Seventy percent of managers, 33 percent of franchise owners, and 50 percent of McDonald's corporate employees started as crew. McDonald's is the only restaurant organization to be awarded college credit recommendations for its training curriculum by the American Council on Education (ACE). McDonald's is proud of its diverse workforce, leading the nation in employing working parents, seniors, individuals with special needs and teenagers. On average, more than 52 cents of every dollar earned at McDonald's is returned to local economies.
