Our People

Since we first opened our doors in 1955, people have been coming to McDonald’s for a job – and discovering so much more.

McDonald’s offers a chance to learn, grow and gain hands-on experiences that can set them up for success – whether here at McDonald’s or anywhere else they pursue their opportunities. And the pride that comes from bringing a little lovin’ to our customers every day.

Diana, General Manager

Diana had never even been in a McDonald’s before coming to the U.S. In fact, the first time she ate at a McDonald’s, she decided to apply for a job. Now a General Manager, Diana has plans to pursue a Master’s degree and hopes to own her own restaurant.

Yasiel, General Manager

At 16, Yasiel started working at McDonald’s and immediately working his way up. He bought a house four years ago and is a proud role model for his nine year-old son.

We believe in empowering these opportunity seekers. That’s why we…

  • Create opportunities for advancement, right from day one. In fact, many of McDonald’s independent owner operators and more than half of all managers in company-owned restaurants started out as crew.
  • Provide world-class training and real-world experiences that inspire confidence and create marketable skills that can be used anywhere.
  • Empower young people with management positions early in their careers.
  • Offer a range of best-in-class training and educational programs: from English-as-a-second-language instruction, to management training programs that can earn college credit recommendations, to educational assistance.
  • In 2013 McDonald’s USA and its independent owner operators committed to separately hiring 100,000 veterans by the end of 2015 and are close to reaching the goal. 

We're only as good as the people we hire. - Ray Kroc

As Ray Kroc said, we’re only as good as the people we hire. And no matter where their career leads them, while they’re working at McDonald’s, we want to provide opportunities that empower them on their journey.
