The Real Reason McDonald’s Is Hiring More People

Hint: more employees aren’t getting hired just to flip burgers.

This summer, McDonald’s is planning to hire 250,000 workers, which presents a nine percent compared to last year. And the job description has officially supersized itself to include waiting on tables and making deliveries. The fast food franchise plans to recruit employees — of which half are expected to be 16-24 years old — via advertisements on Snapchat, Spotify, and Hulu. According to CNN, the 10-second McDonald’s Snapchat ads will allow users to access the career site in addition to portraying current employees explaining why they enjoy their jobs.

"As we see the younger generations seeking out their first jobs, we want to make them aware of the great opportunities available at McDonald's," human resources executive Jez Langhorn said in a statement. In efforts to become more customer-centric, new hires will be expected to offer tableside service in the 14,000 eateries across America, in addition to stacking burgers and promoting larger french fry orders.
