McJob anyone?

McDonald’s Corp. said the company
and its franchisees are looking to hire as many as 50,000 people at U.S.
restaurants during a 19 April hiring event.

The fast-food giant said the event
will seek to add a combination of full- and part-time positions in nearly
14,000 restaurants.

McDonald’s has 1.7 million
employees world-wide.

The fast-food giant has continued
to outpace its rivals, aided by an increasingly diverse menu that ranges from
value items to higher-margin offerings such as blended ice drinks, as well as
renovated stores and longer hours of operations.
