McDonald’s Philippines is targeting to generate 1,000 more jobs by the year-end to complement its robust expansion in the country.
In a statement over the weekend, McDonald’s Philippines said it was embarking on a new program to offer direct jobs, specifically crew services and managerial positions, in select areas across the country. Select branches will be transformed into recruitment hubs for a day.
McDonald’s Go Hire Day will initially run four days in August and September starting today, Monday at McDonald’s Valero in Makati City, to be followed by McDonald’s Motorway in Tarlac and McDonald’s Dau in Pampanga on September 5; and McDonald’s Las Piñas on September 18.
This year, McDonald’s Philippines operator Golden Arches Development Corp. (GADC) is targeting to add 40 new stores by the year-end in a bid to further expand its foothold.
The company has programmed P2 billion in capital expenditures to fund the opening of new branches and other nationwide growth initiatives.
Last year, GADC opened 52 new branches nationwide in Antique, Sorsogon, Masbate, and Agusan del Sur, which led to the creation of 4,000 new jobs.
