In addition to hiring new people for the open positions, McDonald's is also using this as an opportunity to try and change the perception that a job with the company is a dead end, but one with room for advancement with long-term benefits. Many of McDonald's menu decisions in recent years have been made with an eye towards competing with Starbucks. McDonald's is hoping to emulate Starbucks' success in getting potential hires into believing that there's more to that job than slinging coffee and speaking in gibberish Italian for much of the day.
McDonald's will be accepting job applications until 5 p.m. today.
