Phoenix, central and northern Arizona McDonald’s restaurants are hosting “Hiring Day,” 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Wed, Nov. 16, seeking to hire 3,000 new employees. The new job openings will include both full-time and part-time crew and manager positions. Interested candidates are encouraged to stop by their neighborhood restaurant for an interview. They can also apply at their local restaurant or online at mcdonalds.com/careers. “We have immediate openings not just for the holiday season, but jobs that can also turn into rewarding careers,” said Michelle Slayton, president of McDonald’s Owner/Operator Association of Phoenix and northern Arizona. “This is an excellent opportunity to earn extra money (earn while you learn), have access to great benefits and competitive wages, enjoy a flexible work schedule, and to work with a great group of exciting people.” McDonald’s crew and managers are eligible for benefits including Archways to Opportunity, which helps employees learn English-language skills, obtain a high school diploma and move on to an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree. McDonald’s believes that education is the true game-changer and Archways to Opportunities provides tuition assistance to employees working at least 20 hours a week.
