ALTOONA – McDonald’s restaurants across the Altoona, State College and Johnstown areas are planning to hire more than 250 new employees beginning in the month of April.
This comes as part of a collaborative effort between McDonald’s restaurants in Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Eastern Tennessee, Southwest Virginia and Western Pennsylvania to hire nearly 10,000 workers locally.
Working at McDonald’s offers restaurant employees an opportunity to not only build a successful career, but also offers a chance to learn transferable soft skills such as teamwork, customer service, accountability and communication in a safe and respectful environment.
“As small business owners, we’re proud to be able to provide jobs in our local communities,” said area McDonald’s owner/operator Roy Draper. “McDonald’s is a people-first business and our restaurants are a great place to gain life skills and grow both as an individual and professionally.”
In addition to providing local jobs, McDonald’s continues to invest in the communities in which it serves through three major scholarship programs, HACER® National Scholarships, Thurgood Marshall Black and Positively Golden Scholarships and McDonald’s/APIA Scholarship program.
McDonald’s and its independent franchisees provide jobs for almost 2 million people across the world and are committed to inspiring workplaces where everyone – from crew to C-suite – is equally supported and empowered to realize their full potential.
