McDonald’s Restaurant Crew Careers

Where will you find the biggest management advantages in business? You won’t believe your eyes… Or your ears… Or anything else for that matter.

Because any way you look at it, one of the best places to build a management career is under the Golden Arches.

That’s right, your neighborhood McDonald’s. That billions and billions served. Hard to believe? Keep reading.

A restaurant job with McDonald’s is one of the better kept management development secrets in the world. More than half of McDonald’s Corporation executives and more than a third of McDonald’s independent owner/operators started their careers in a McDonald’s restaurant. What does that tell you about your chances to move up?

And that’s just the beginning. McDonald’s offer a world-renown management development program, including a chance to attend the college-accredited Hamburger University. A career path beginning in a company-owned or independently owned and operated McDonald’s restaurant can take you as far as you want to go.

That’s what restaurant jobs with McDonald’s are all about. You’ll be encouraged to grow, learn and develop the broad-based skills you’ll need to move up fast — with Kaufman Enterprises, an independent McDonald’s franchisee, or almost any company in the world. Having such experience on your resume will open eyes, not to mention doors. It starts in your local McDonald’s restaurant. What comes next is up to you.
