McDonald's and its franchisees want to hire 50,000 new employees all in one day later this month.
On April 19, the fast food chain will hold a hiring blitz to fill a variety of full-time and part-time crew and management positions at its 14,000 locations nationwide.
McDonald's said it is using the event to highlight opportunities for advancement within the company. A "McJob" can be much more than a dead-end, low-wage position, the company said.
"Our national hiring event is an opportunity to invite more people across the country to join our team, and learn that a McJob is one with career growth and endless possibilities," said Jan Fields, president of McDonald's USA.
Fields began her career with McDonald's in an entry-level restaurant position. According to the company, more than 50 percent of McDonald's franchisees and 75 percent of restaurant managers started in such jobs.
The company's goal is to increase its workforce to 700,000 as more of its restaurants stay open 24-hours a day.
The hamburger giant hopes to add between three and four new hires per restaurant.
Those interested in applying for a job can go online at McDonalds.com/Careers and fill out an application for an open position, call for an interview ahead of time, or simply show up at a McDonald's restaurant on April 19.
