McDonald’s New York Tri-State hosted a career workshop at Korean Community Services of Metropolitan New York (KCS) to promote employment opportunities to the local community in Flushing, Queens.  McDonald’s representatives discussed the range of full-time and part-time positions available at local restaurants as well as the various benefits the company offers its employees, which may include medical insurance coverage and college scholarships. Those interested in applying for a position are encouraged to visit their local McDonald’s restaurant or apply online at http://www.McDonalds.com/Careers.

Since 2013, McDonald’s New York Tri-State has been conducting career workshops at local community organizations to build local awareness about its unique employment opportunities.  A job with McDonald’s can range –and potentially grow– from a part-time crew member at a local restaurant to a full-time position at their corporate offices. In fact, nearly 50% of McDonald’s corporate restaurant managers and more than 60% of owner operators started out as crew.

“KCS is pleased to host this employment workshop with McDonald’s,” said Helen Jang, Project Director at KCS. “We appreciate their willingness to share career opportunities with our community.”
