For those of you looking for a job applications with a secure future and a chance at continued growth, a Mcdonalds application just may be what the doctor ordered.
These days, many college graduates are finding out the hard way their career choices are so narrow they have to think outside the box and look past their original career goals in order to land their first job.
Some grads have turned to local jobs through a Mcdonalds career to help them get their feet wet in the workplace only to find they’ve picked a great company with excellent benefits, and many actually stay for the long haul.
Many teenage workers trying to find summer or part-time jobs usually fill out Mcdonalds employment application before trying anywhere else. They figure with so many entry-level job openings available, they have a good shot at getting hired right away if they meet their criteria.
While it’s true that Mcdonalds jobs are continually being filled due to expansion and high turnover rates in the fast food industry, the ones who are well-prepared are having the most success getting hired quickly.
Andre Borregon, a MD’s restaurant manager in West Palm Beach, FL says, “I usually have an onslaught of mostly 16 and 17 year old kids applying right before school ends in June, and to be honest, I think kids are getting these jobs because their parents can’t afford their expensive needs such as the latest clothing, the best sneakers, etc. This gives them a chance to take money pressure off their parents while providing things they need.”
Recently laid off workers are turning to this fast food chain also and filling out applications for Mcdonalds at a record pace. They know all too well about the lack of job security and are willing to take an initial pay cut to join a working family that’s here to stay.
John Billingsley, a general store manager from Toledo, OH says happily, “I was laid off from a management position in an advertising agency here in town about a year and a half ago, and I never would have thought I would ever submit my resume to a fast food chain. A good friend of mine suggested I look into the Mcdonalds careers available, and I haven’t looked back ever since. Although I’m making substantially less than I was at my old job, I’m much happier because there’s room to grow and advance, and I don’t have to worry about losing my job tomorrow.”
