McDonald’s offers incentives to fill hundreds of open positions across Delaware Valley

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Owners of select McDonald’s locations in the Delaware Valley are holding in-person hiring events Wednesday in hopes of attracting more candidates.

“It was a big challenge for us to get people into the stores. It’s happening across the country, not just at McDonald’s, we all feel the pressure,” said McDonald’s owner-operator Grant Skyllas.

There are currently almost two job openings for every unemployed person in the United States.

“If you want to put people on the path to self-sufficiency, give them access to an opportunity to earn a living wage, to earn some dignity, the ability to care for their families,” said the Philadelphia City Council Majority Leader, Cherelle L Parker.

Hiring events will be held at select McDonald’s locations in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Each store is looking to fill about 10 positions this summer, totaling about 2,500 jobs across the region.

Business owners try to make changes to get these people to apply.

“Sign up for bonuses, health care, whatever we have to do to attract and retain an employee, that’s what we’re willing to do,” Skyllas said.

McDonald’s also offers other benefits and incentives to its employees, including:

– Paid time away
– Paid sick leave
– Training/growth opportunities
– Reimbursement of tuition fees

– Career advice
– Flexible hours/schedule
– health care
– 401,000

If you cannot attend a recruitment event in person, you can still apply on the company’s website.
