When the coronavirus hit hundreds of thousands of people lost their jobs. Now with Phase 3 open and other businesses slowly reopening, McDonald's is looking to hire hundreds of thousands of workers nationwide. That means hundreds of jobs are open here in the Capital Region. According to CNN.com, McDonald's needs to fill two hundred sixty thousand full and part-time jobs this summer across the country. These positions need to be filled because dining rooms will be reopening in McDonald's restaurants nationwide.

The coronavirus pandemic forced all McDonald's dining rooms to close but the restaurants stayed open for drive-thru and delivery. Now with restrictions being lifted and dining rooms slowly opening again, McDonald's needs to fill a ton of positions.

Back in May, McDonald's made new safety plans and precautions specifically so they can reopen the dining rooms. Now customers will have to follow social distancing with stickers on the floor, tables will be blocked off, and there will be no self-serve beverage station. Every hour employees will have to wash their hands and wear personal protective equipment (PPE).

The President of McDonald's USA, Joe Erlinger said:

"We are building on the processes already in place such as wellness checks, social distancing floor stickers, protective barriers at order points, masks and gloves for employees with the addition of new procedures, and training for the reopening of dining rooms.”

If you are looking for a full or part-time job, you can apply on the McDonald's website HERE. Many of the Capital Region McDonald's locations are hiring.
