McDonald's Canada and its franchisees are hoping to break a previous one-day hiring record today in its annual National Hiring Day event.
The chain hopes to hire for 7,000 available positions, the most it has ever hired in one day.
Interested applicants can learn about McDonald's, apply for a role and possibly be interviewed on the spot for crew, restaurant management and new hospitality positions.
"At a time of rising unemployment across the country and when youth unemployment is almost double the national average, McDonald's has a variety of roles to offer — whether it's a first job or a new job," said Sharon Ramalho, chief people officer for McDonald's Canada.
"A job at McDonald's provides our employees with relevant experience, world-class training and skills that set the foundation for future success and careers. Some people call them 'soft skills'. We call them ‘Skills for Life.’"
Started in 2011, McDonald's Canada’s annual event has led to the hiring of more than 28,000 people.
