VICTORIA, May 30, 2018 /CNW/ – On Monday, June 4th, McDonald’s Canada will aim to hire more than 400 new employees across British Columbia on its annual West Hiring Day, a one-day hiring blitz where candidates are encouraged to visit their local restaurant to learn about the opportunities and benefits of working at McDonald’s.
Job seekers will have the opportunity to apply in-restaurant, with the benefit of a possible on-the-spot interview by a member of the restaurant management team. With more than 1,000 new hires planned across Western Canada, this hiring blitz is part of McDonald’s ongoing commitment to providing meaningful employment opportunities at a variety of experience levels. Across Western Canada, participating restaurants will seek to hire for crew, managers, as well as Guest Experience Leader positions.
“Together with fellow franchisees, we are excited to be creating new employment opportunities across British Columbia” said Ken Taylor, McDonald’s Victoria franchisee. “We encourage people with all different types of experience to apply, whether it is a young person looking for their first role out of school, or a seasoned professional looking for a management position.”
“We are incredibly proud of the training and skill set we can offer our employees,” said Steve Rutherford, Human Resources Business Partner, McDonald’s Canada. “West Hiring Day is an important day for our organization which emphasizes the importance we place on providing meaningful career development and training opportunities.”
West Hiring Day will take place at participating restaurants in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, the Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories. This year’s hiring day comes just a few months after National Hiring Day in April, which saw McDonald’s hire more than 6600 new employees across the country.
Interested candidates looking for local restaurant career opportunities who are unable to apply in-person can go to www.McDonalds.ca/Careers to apply online.
