MCDONALD’S Philippines is targeting to hire 20,000 new employees this year, as it ramps up store expansion.
In a statement, the fast food giant said it will hold “Go Hire Day” this month in select McDonald’s branches which will be turned into recruitment hubs for service crew and manager trainee applicants.
McDonald’s Philippines said it directly hired 19,000 as of end-December 2018, as it opened 60 new stores and introduced the new store format NXTGEN.
“This year, McDonald’s Philippines eyes to reach a recruitment target of close to 20,000 service crew and manager trainees as it continues to grow its foothold in the Philippine market and elevate the customer experience with NXTGEN,” the company said.
The company has been directly hiring employees since it opened in the Philippines in 1981. It currently has around 60,000 regular employees in over 620 stores nationwide.
“It is an exciting time to join McDonald’s Philippines as we continue to open more new stores and elevate the customer experience through our unique service. With this, we are bringing back ‘Go Hire Day’ which would make it more accessible for job-seekers to be part of our growth,” Chona Torre, senior vice-president for human capital group of McDonald’s Philippines said in a statement on Wednesday.
For those interested, McDonald’s Philippines is looking for bachelor’s degree holders for manager trainee positions, while currently enrolled college students can apply for service crew positions.
