WASHINGTON STATE- As states and communities continue to re-open their economies, McDonald’s restaurants are expecting to hire approximately 260,000 restaurant employees this summer. Including 3,900 employees in Washington State.
In the midst of COVID-19 McDonald’s has implemented nearly 50 new safety procedures to protect crew and customers.
