“McDonald's said it will hire more U.S. workers this summer to staff french fry stations and cash registers, and it will bring in a new way to apply in an effort to draw in more young applicants.
The world's largest burger chain said the company and its franchisees will hire about 250,000 people across its more than 14,000 U.S. restaurants for what is usually one of its busiest seasons of the year. That hiring figure accounts for typically high turnover.
McDonald's will offer applications through Snapchat, the social media platform that allows users to post pictures or videos in 10-second snippets. The chain started accepting "Snaplications" in Australia last month, allowing potential employees to make video submissions with a special filter that shows them wearing a McDonald's uniform. The video audition can then be submitted to McDonald's Snapchat account. After that, McDonald's will send back a link to the application and digital careers page.”
