As summer approaches, McDonald’s restaurants across Mississippi expect to hire 4,029 restaurant employees over the next three months.
McDonald’s offers flexible scheduling, extensive training, advancement opportunities, and the opportunity to qualify for college tuition assistance, earn a high school diploma or learn English as a second language through McDonald’s Archways to Opportunity program.
“As local business owners, we’re proud to provide employment and educational opportunities to our crew members and look forward to welcoming new employees to our McFamily,” said local McDonald’s Owner/Operator Marc O’Ferrall. “We are a people business at our core and the safety of our employees and customers is a top priority, as it has been throughout our 65-year history.”
To ensure a safe working environment, McDonald’s restaurants have implemented more than 50 COVID-19 safety procedures to protect crew and customers. These include wellness and temperature checks, social distancing floor stickers, protective barriers at order points, and masks and gloves for employees with the addition of new procedures and training.
Archways to Opportunity, which provided more than $606,000 in tuition assistance to 289 employees across Mississippi, Western Tennessee, and Northeast Arkansas in 2020, promotes opportunity and mobility for McDonald’s diverse employee community. In addition to Archways to Opportunity, McDonald’s continues to invest in the communities in which it serves through three major scholarship programs, HACER® National Scholarships, Thurgood Marshall Black and Positively Golden Scholarships and McDonald’s/APIA Scholarship program.
