Sixth annual recruitment event generates thousands of roles for youth nationwide
WINNIPEG, April 4, 2016 /CNW/ - Get your resumes ready! On April 6, 2016, McDonald's restaurants across the province will host the sixth annual National Hiring Day. Together with its franchisees, McDonald's Canada is set to fill a record-breaking 7,000 roles in one day, with 250 potential positions in Manitoba.
"We're proud to provide youth across the province with world-class training that sets them up for success," said Shelly Hansen, Regional Vice President, Western Region. "National Hiring Day is not only a way for McDonald's to recruit new talent, it's an opportunity for us to begin the careers of young people."
National Hiring Day is a chance for job seekers to learn about McDonald's culture, apply for a position, and potentially be interviewed on the spot. Crew, management, and new hospitality and customer service roles are available for the taking.
BY THE NUMBERS
- Number of restaurants:
- Now hiring:
- 155 jobs in Winnipeg
- 25 jobs in Brandon
"National Hiring Day is bittersweet for me. Last year at this time, the Northdale restaurant burnt down. We re-opened 10 months later and retained an incredible 80 per cent of our crew," said Ryan McCullough, Winnipeg Franchisee. "Now we're looking for new crew too. Come in to see the new restaurant and learn about how you can join our amazing team."
"We know strong crew and management are essential to our restaurant's success," said Brandon Franchisee, George Sheard. "That's why we're dedicated to providing our employees, old and new, with hands-on training and career opportunities."
