McDonald's hiring locally

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—We all have heard that Tri-Cities has a great job market, but there is always the need for more jobs.  Now McDonald's is hiring 50,000 people in one day nationwide.

About 50 of the positions will be filled in Kennewick and about 60 in Yakima.  The new jobs will be for crew and managements positions both part-time and full-time.  Pay rates are anywhere from minimum wage to restaurant managers making up to $50,000 per year.

If you're interested in applying you can either go to a McDonald's on April 19th and fill-out an application, or sign-up at McDonald' before April 19th.

April 19th will be the single largest one-day hire in the history of McDonald's.  It is all in an effort to support the increasing customer demand.
