McDonald’s Draws Crowds of Job Applicants


TORONTO — Hiring was the order of the day yesterday, April 19, at McDonald’s where the company’s first National Hiring Day was expected to net 4,000 new Canadian employees from British Columbia to Newfoundland.

“Tremendous growth over the last few years and a growing customer base has given us an opportunity to bolster our workforce like never before,” said Len Jillard, chief people officer of McDonald’s Canada, which employs more than 77,000 Canadians in more than 1,400 restaurants across the country. “National Hiring Day is our chance to let job seekers in on a well-kept secret — that a job at McDonald’s can be the beginning of a challenging and rewarding career.”

Interested candidates were invited to stop by participating restaurants to learn about the local job opportunities that included full- and part-time crew and restaurant management positions.

South of the border, McDonald’s Corp. welcomed hordes of potential candidates to the hiring blitz in a bid to fill the 50,000 positions available at its 14,000 U.S. locations.
