McDonald’s Wants to Hire 250,000 New Employees Through Snapchat

McDonald’s Wants to Hire 250,000 New Employees Through Snapchat

The company is using social media to add to the McDonald’s family

Job seekers can apply to the thousands of McDonald’s locations in the country.

Earlier this year, McDonald’s rolled out its millennial-friendly “Snaplication” program in Australia, enabling people to apply to work at the fast-food chain through a 10-second video. Now the program is coming to the United States in a company-wide effort to bring in 250,000 new employees this summer.

The initiative will start on June 13 with video ads of real employees talking about working at McDonald’s appearing on Snapchat, according to CBS Los Angeles. If Snapchat users are interested in applying, they can swipe up on the ad and be redirected to the career webpage for job opportunities at the company.

According to McDonald’s, more than half of its employees are between the ages of 16 to 24, with 80 percent of people in that age range using Snapchat on a daily basis.

“We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to find job seekers. We thought Snaplications was a great way to allow us to meet job seekers where they are — their phones,” Jez Langhorn, spokesperson for McDonald’s USA, said in a statement.

“As we see the younger generations seeking out their first jobs, we want to make them aware of the great opportunities available at McDonald’s, especially considering we’re committed to being America’s best first job.”

The company is also looking to utilize Spotify and Hulu to seek out potential job seekers.

You Can Now Apply for Jobs at McDonald's Using Snapchat

The burger chain is hoping to attract more millennial employees in the U.S.

You can do more on social media app Snapchat than shoot videos of yourself donning flower crowns or send NSFW images that vanish within seconds—if you&aposre a tech-savvy person looking for a fast-food gig, you can apply to work at McDonald&aposs on there, too.

The fast food chain first encouraged would-be workers to use Snapchat to apply in Australia, rolling out the option in April. It was apparently successful, because the function hit the U.S. on Tuesday. And through the app (or other traditional means) McDonald&aposs says it&aposs looking to hire 250,000 employees this summer alone. That&aposs more people than the company hired during the last year, according to a CNBC news report.

"We&aposre always looking for new and innovative ways to find job seekers," McDonald&aposs USA senior human resources director Jez Langhorn said. "We thought Snaplications was a great way to allow us to meet job seekers where they are — their phones."

About half of the employees McDonald&aposs hires are between the ages of 16 to 24, so it seems the company is onto something. McDonald&aposs says it will also use Spotify and Hulu to reach out to potential hires in the future—though it didn&apost specify when or how, so we&aposll just have to wait and see if they release a McDonald&aposs mixtape or sitcom.

But the company is trying to appeal to younger generations in more than just its hiring practices. In January, McDonald&aposs rolled out a Big Mac ATM, an automated burger-dispensing machine that eliminates the need for a cashier or server. And last year, the fast food chain partnered with UberEats to deliver its meals directly to your door—you know, for when going through the drive-thru is too much trouble.

To apply using Snapchat, here&aposs what you&aposll need to do: Open the app and wait for a McDonald&aposs 10-second video ad—showing current employees talking about their jobs—to flash across your smartphone&aposs screen. Then, swipe up, and you&aposll be taken to the company&aposs career page, where you can apply for jobs at its local restaurants. And if that sounds too complicated, you&aposre probably not McDonald&aposs material to begin with.
