McJobs Available: McDonald’s To Hire 50,000
McJobs is what they will be called. McDonald’s plans a national hiring day later this month.I have to say that at one time I too had a McJob. When I was in college I worked at the McDonald’s inside the Wal-Mart Super Center in Stephenville. We did everything, fry cook, grill, took orders,
cleaned there were only a handful of us working there and 2 of them I went to high school with. It was fun and it was extra money. I smelled like a french fry everyday but it was my first job and I thought it was pretty fun. I think everyone should work fast food at least once in there lifetime. I also remember that they always had you thinking about the next step, shift manager, store manger, district manager and they want you to move up and become a chain owner. In fact you even have to go to a special school to be an owner, best I remember anyway.
There is money to be made. Not at first of course, you have to work your way up but if you show up, do your job and are good with customers it won’t take long. So if you are looking for a job, especially those of you in high school or college, I encourage you to take a look at a McJob…you might get made fun of but at some point you will be looking back laughing because you have a great future ahead of you. You won’t always be the fry cook; you might be the CEO of one of the biggest companies in the world.
That’s my story,” Jan Fields, McDonald’s USA president, told CNBC. “I started 33 years ago working french fries. I’m now president of McDonald’s U.S. My story really isn’t that unique.”
More than half of McDonald’s franchisees and 75 percent of restaurant managers started at entry-level jobs, according to the company.
McDonald’s also does great work with children and support charities for children like the Ronald McDonald Houses found across the country that provide families a place to stay while there child is being treated at hospitals for long periods of time.
