TORONTO — McDonald’s Canada is preparing to hire more than 6,000 employees during its third annual national hiring day on Apr. 11.
“There is a reason we have developed a deserved reputation as one of Canada’s top employers,” said Len Jillard, chief people officer, McDonald’s Canada.
“Just like our president, I also began as crew at McDonald’s and can personally attest to the fact that we are fully committed to hiring young people and nurturing their success in life and in our organization. In a market where youth unemployment rates are nearly double the Canadian average, we are hiring thousands of part and full-time positions. It’s a fantastic opportunity especially for young people; at the same time, we’sre positively benefiting the overall economy by hiring thousands of new employees.”
Job-seekers will be able to apply in person for available positions at participating McDonald’s locations across the country, where they can also learn about restaurant career opportunities and be interviewed on the spot.
Since 2011, McDonald’s has hired close to 10,000 people across the country through the one-day event. The company has also recently partnered with Junior Achievement of Canada to help students in communities across the country secure their first jobs.
